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.
