GO­ING DUTCH Tw!tch – Dek­man­tel Queen’s Stu­dents Union Belfast 10pm £12/£10 twitch­belfast.com When it comes to European elec­tronic mu­sic fes­ti­vals, Dek­man­tel is cur­rently top of the list for many ad­ven­tur­ous souls. Es­tab­lished in Am­s­ter­dam in 2013 af­ter a cou­ple of try-outs and other events, the fes­ti­val has won ku­dos for its ex­cel­lent pro­gram­ming and an at­ten­tion to de­tail at the Am­s­ter­dame Bose venue . Tonight Dek­man­tel founders Thomas Mar­tojo and Casper Tiel­rooij are in Belfast with the Dek­man­tel Soundsystem for a jour­ney into the heart of the elec­tronic mu­sic which in­spires and in­flu­ences how they run things at the fes­ti­val. JC IR­ISH JAZZ Neil Ó Lo­clainn’s Cuar The Complex 15 Little Green St, Dublin, 8.30pm, ¤10, face­book.com/cuar­mu­sic While jazz mu­si­cians in most European coun­tries – notably Scan­di­navia – have en­joyed long and fruit­ful en­gage­ments with their own tra­di­tional mu­sic, in Ire­land, jazz and trad have been cu­ri­ously re­luc­tant to mix, like boys and girls on op­po­site sides of a dance­floor, eye­ing each other sus­pi­ciously, wanting to en­gage but afraid to make the first move. It has taken a new generation of more lib­er­ated Ir­ish mu­si­cians, unen­cum­bered by genre, to break the ice. Fore­most among them is Clare bassist Neil Ó Lo­clainn, best known as the driv­ing force behind big band En­sem­ble Eriu. Cuar (be­low) is a more intimate af­fair, an im­pro­visatory cham­ber trio with fid­dler Aoife Ní Bhrian and clar­inetist Matt Ber­rill. Roscanna is their debut al­bum, re­leased this week (see re­view, p13). CL TECHNO Base­ment Project Elec­tric Gal­way 11pm ¤10/¤8 Berlin pro­ducer Mike Dehn­ert’s Fach­w­erk la­bel has pro­vided a home for such heavy­weight techno prac­ti­tion­ers as Sascha Ry­dell, Ro­man Lin­dau and Dehn­ert him­self. Away from Fach­w­erk, Dehn­ert has re­leased the How Close EP of pris­tine stream­lined house on the DJ Koze co-founded Pampa la­bel. JC
