TECHNO Killekill x Bas­tard Elec­trico Killekill is pretty big deal. Based in Ber­lin, you’ve an en­tity which started out as a club night in the Berghain venue be­fore mov­ing onto record re­leases (EOMAC, Neil Land­strumm, Affie Yusuf and tons more) and a fes­ti­val (Krake). Rep­re­sent­ing Killekill on this visit to Cork as part of their eighth birth­day tour are Alien­ata (the bril­liant Span­ish na­tive who is cur­rently work­ing on her Kat Channel col­lab with Snuffo) and la­bel over­seer DJ Flush, with Ellen King, aka ELLLL, fly­ing the Cork flag. DUTCH GOLD Tele­phones Mr Men­del learned the ropes the old-fash­ioned way. The Am­s­ter­dam na­tive cut his teeth spin­ning hip-hop bangers at Duivel be­fore head­ing off to Bit­ter­zoet and a day-job sort­ing the soul, disco, Afro and Brazil­ian dusty grooves at Waxwell Records. Aside from var­i­ous res­i­den­cies at nights like Doka and I Love Vinyl in his home city, Men­del has also brought the funk around the world. He’s in Dublin to play at Tele­phones’ last soiree of the sum­mer. THEATRE Pyg­malion Ev­ery­one knows the story.
