The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - THE TICKET SEVEN DAYS - SL JC Lime­light, Belfast, 9.30pm, £17, marceldettman­nrecords.de

A duo who have been steeped in the tra­di­tion from the cra­dle, Caitlín Nic Gab­hann is a con­certina player and sean nós dancer with a light­ness of touch that stretches from her fin­gers to her feet. Ciarán Ó Maon­aigh, a former TG4 Young Tra­di­tional Mu­si­cian of the Year, is a fid­dle player with a richly di­verse reper­toire. Their epony­mous al­bum from last year, set the bar high, so no sur­prise that they’re tour­ing ex­ten­sively to cel­e­brate it. TECHNO Jika Jika! It’s a big night for the Jika Jika! team as they over­see the Co­coon takeover in the heart of Derry. La­bel boss Sven Vath is the big draw on the bill, the Ger­man pro­ducer who has been over­see­ing qual­ity techno re­leases since back in his Hart­house and Eye Q days. He’ll be joined in the north­west by Josh “Higher State of Con­scious­ness” Wink, Chris­tian Burkhardt, Dana Ruh and the Jika Jika! DJs. BERGHAIN IN BELFAST Mar­cel Dettmann Any­one who’s ever gone to – or even tried to go to – Ber­lin’s Berghain will know its long-stand­ing res­i­dent Mar­cel Dettmann (right). One of the cur­rent big­wigs on the world­wide club cir­cuit, Dettmann al­ways draws a crowd with his tough, min­i­mal, melodic style of techno. As a

pro­ducer, he’s also highly re­garded, with re­leases on Berghain’s in-house la­bel Ostgut Ton and his own MDR. Sup­port from Belfast tech don Phil Kieran and the ex­cel­lent Sch­mutz. JC

SU­PER­STAR DJ Fat­boy Slim

Ti­tanic, Belfast, 6pm, £35, bel­sonic.com Belfast’s Bel­sonic series comes to a close for 2016 with some Satur­day night fever cour­tesy of the DJ who has been suc­cess­fully bring­ing the rave to clubs, are­nas and beaches and stages for yonks. It’s 20 years since Nor­man Cook in­tro­duced Fat­boy Slim to the world. Cook is a man with many dif­fer­ent al­ter-egos – see Freak Power, Beats In­ter­na­tional and Piz­za­man, for in­stance – but Fat­boy Slim’s fond­ness for good times and club­tas­tic highs have seen him pros­per. Sup­port from Syd­ney house-pop wiz­ards Hugo Gruz­man and James Lyell aka Flight Fa­cil­i­ties. JC
