TECHNO Slam When it comes to techno luminaries, Slam’s Stuart McMillan and Orde Meikle are very much in the top division. DJs since the late 1980s, they’ve expanded into labels, (Soma, the imprint which gave Daft Punk a start in 1995), productions (tracks like Positive Education remains peerless) and festivals, with the long running Slam tent at T In the Park. They’ve been coming over to Dublin for a couple of decades now and they’re joined by Luke Xander, Eoin Donovan and Jake Nolan as support on the latest jaunt.
