INDIE The Antlers Rising to prominence from the release of their 2009 album, Hospice, New York band Antlers have since forged a path as purveyors of slow-burning indie music that is underscored with poignancy. Not Dizzee Rascal, then, but still quite special in their own graceful, understated way. DJ KAYTRANADA Haiti-born and Montreal-raised, young DJ and producer Kaytranada has been turning heads with his bevy of glittering, sexy beats and his wonky take on hip-hop, r’n’b and house. After a clutch of EPs, remixes and releases for labels such as Bromance, HW&W and Jakarta, and appearances at the better turned-out festivals worldwide, the XL label came calling and swooped him up. A name you’ll be dropping quite a lot in 2015. JAZZ Chris Engel Quintet South African saxophonist Chris Engel was a welcome addition to the local scene when he relocated to Dublin in 2010. His current quintet showcases his own explorative compositions, and includes local notables Bill Blackmore on trumpet, Daragh O’Kelly on keyboards, Cormac O’Brien on bass and Shane O’Donovan on drums.
