Matador has been at the top table of international techno artists for over 5 years and is possibly Ireland’s most popular touring Dj. We’re thrilled to have him headline Powerscourt on Paddy’s even for what will be his first Dublin headline show in 3 years. After an incredible performance at our 9th birthday last year we are delighted Âme will return to play live on March 16th for the very first time..
It’s been a whirlwind few years for Dublin man Gavin Lynch better known as Matador. From initial beginnings as a sound engineer and DJ in his native Dublin, the dedicated producer has plotted a carefully devised route right to the forefront of techno in just three short years. The organic evolution of Matador’s productions has been clear for all to see, the cultivation of his instantly recognizable sound an intrinsic part of his journey from humble beginnings. Perc Trax and Cocoon were early stop-offs before Matador found his artistic home with Minus, the much respected stable of the legendary Richie Hawtin and the perfect outlet for an adventurous producer like himself, a label which has had a substantial impact on his flourishing career.
Âme have been amongst the world’s most forward thinking and renowned artists for nearly two decades. Their captaincy of the Innervisions Label, and constant output of low slung, meticulous music has seen them become one of the most honed and captivating acts in the world. Hypnotically warm and melodic, their sound never feels rushed, yet bristles with enough Electronics to invariably leave a dance floor ecstatic.
