LEWIS FAUTZI
Faut Section/ Polegroup/ Soma/ Figure
Lewis Fautzi, whose real name is Luis Gonçalves, was born in 1991 in Barcelos, Portugal. Luis spends most of the time in the studio and he is so prolific that his productivity could only benefit from actually sleeping there. He’s full of ideas and is driven by a huge will to create, innovate and make his mark on the electronic music scene.

  • read more
  • He started deejaying and producing at an early age and has so far released work on labels such as his own Faut Section, Soma Records, Figure, Pole Group, Soniculture or Labrynth.

    In recent years, he has been in the lab listening to the finest techno from all around the world, taking in influences from the 90’s all through to nowadays, which allows him to create his own interpretation of all those styles. The dance scene in Portugal, especially in the north, was his motivation and helped him to kick-start his career, allowing him to have a fuller and more meaningful understanding of techno and electronic music.

    As a result of his constant evolution and search for his unique sounds, he recently created his very own live show. A hypnotic show where techno goes deep, dark and industrial, transporting you into an amazing electronic experience.

    His 3rd album ‘The Ascension of Mind’ is released June 16th.

    On support we have an Irish Legend

    Jon Hussey

    Jon has released with fellow Techno DJ Sunil Sharpe as part of a joint project under the moniker ‘Tricaustic’ and released “the Caustophobic Pressure EP” on Komisch records which was well received and supported in the Techno community.

Saturday 8th July - The Jimmy Cake

Tickets: €13 from Biletto.ie/ €25 Bundle: admission + LP (bundle available via advance purchase only) The Jimmy Cake: Tough Love
Written in 2015 as a continuous piece for a one-off performance in The Joinery, a much-loved and badly-missed arts space in Dublin City, Tough Love is part kosmische post-punk dystopia, part time-lapsed motorik stoner rock. Both sides menace and swell, playing with time and space before building to two distinct strains of glorious sonic pay-off. ‘Tough Love’ is released on the illustrious Penske Recordings on Friday 14th July but will be available to purchase at the show. The Jimmy Cake formed as a 10-piece group in Dublin, Ireland in 2000 from the fresh remains of local experimental rock noiseniks Das Madman. In that time they have collaborated live with the likes of Damo Suzuki, Iva Bittova & Charles Hayward while slowly drifting over the course of six albums from a pastoral psychedelia to full-on kosmische psych, fully realised on ‘Master’ their 2015 aural colossus. Drawing from the same sonic palette, Tough Love is another serpentine & ecstatic creation from one of Ireland’s most consistently adventurous bands.

EMMA O’REILLY, SHIFTWORK on support “FRACTURES’ is a strong EP displaying Emma O’Reilly’s unique diverse sound as she glides from dramatic to pop, folk with rock flavours drizzled on top. It is proficient as Emma has clearly created a little niche for herself to create music that is beautiful and bursting with colourful fragments of wonderful art.” – Indie Buddie

  • read more
  • “If you are looking for one of the most original-sounding Irish EP releases from the past few months then look no further than Emma O’Reilly’s truly delightful Fractures…I can’t quite put my finger on this EP, it’s too hard to pigeon-hole or describe in a small few words, apart from mind-blown.” – Remy’s Film and Music Blog

    “it’s evident of the abundant ability that Emma possesses. Emma can switch from dramatic to pop to folk to rock without ever compromising the quality of the finished track. “Fractures” is an incredible EP and is bound to catapult Emma to even bigger things.” – Street Ceol

    Shortlisted for Best Female, Pure M Music Awards, 2017

    On July 20th, Emma O’Reilly and her band will perform in the Grand Social to celebrate the launch her of new EP, FRACTURES. Having toured extensively last year in Canada, the US, the UK and even Lithuania, Emma has garnered comparisons with Tori Amos, Kate Bush and Regina Spektor for her Dramatic, dynamic, yet refined sound. This night of music promises musical twists and turns and a few special guests and surprises on the way.

    FRACTURES is her second independently produced studio EP, recorded by mixing live and multi-track processes in Arad Studios with Les Keye (Squarehead, Kevin “Herm” Connolly, My Sweet Beloved).
