Plan your route to Psy­chonav­i­ga­tion

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Weekly Guide To Entertainment Friday 13.07.2012 -

IN­DE­PEN­DENT elec­tron­ica la­bel Psy­chonav­i­ga­tion Records turns 12 next month, and to cel­e­brate, they are host­ing a seven-hour bash Up­stairs at Whe­lan’s. On Au­gust 25th, artists signed to the Dublin-based la­bel will play, in­clud­ing “the god­fa­ther of Ir­ish elec­tron­ica” Roger Doyle, 24-year-old min­i­mal­ist Mayo com­poser Sea­mus O’Muineachain and genre-hop­ping Kil­dare band The P Af­fec­tion. Im­ploded View, Sean Quinn, String The­ory Sound Sys­tem and Adey­hawke are also on the bill, while la­bel founder Keith Downey will DJ.

Whe­lan’s was where the first Psy­chonav­i­ga­tion com­pi­la­tion was launched in 2000, so the venue for the bash seemed fit­ting, Downey said. “We can’t be­lieve we’re still truck­ing along af­ter all these years. There’s been a few la­bels re­cently who de­cided to pack up for mostly fi­nan­cial rea­sons, but to be frank, what lit­tle money the la­bel makes, we in­vest back into the busi­ness and be­cause of this, we can continue to re­lease mu­sic on a phys­i­cal for­mat. This is our main mis­sion and some­thing we al­ways will pro­vide to our cus­tomers.” Tick­ets for the birthday party are on sale now from tick­ets.ie

The Whe­lan’s Record Fair re­turns to Wex­ford Street, Dublin, this Satur­day from 1-5pm, with traders trim­ming their col­lec­tions.

The Duck­worth Lewis Method (Neil Han­non and Thomas Walsh) are writ­ing a fol­low-up to their 2010 epony­mous de­but. Walsh hinted on Twit­ter that the LP may be out next year.

Deloren­tos are one of the bands tak­ing part in It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue, a HBO film about Bob Dy­lan, when they play Span­ish fes­ti­val Beni­cas­sim this week­end.

Four Wu-Tang Clan mem­bers (Ghost­face Kil­lah, GZA, Raek­won and Masta Killa) will play the But­ton Fac­tory on Sun­day.
