Cel­tronic Nerve Cen­tre Derry 9pm £15 cel­tron­icfes­ti­ There are many rea­sons why Cel­tronic has re­mained at the top of the pile when it comes to Ir­ish elec­tronic mu­sic fes­ti­vals for so long and a lot of that is down to line-ups like this. Carl Craig is the elec­tronic mu­sic sorcerer who is still cre­at­ing a buzz many years af­ter he came out of Detroit with his Retroac­tive and Planet E la­bels. Over the years, tracks such as In­ner­zone Orches­tra’s Bug In the Bass­bin cut, those mes­meris­ing C2 remixes and, most re­cently, his Ver­sus al­bum with Les Siè­cles Orches­tra, con­duc­tor François-Xavier Roth and clas­si­cal pi­anist Francesco Tris­tano have shown a true in­no­va­tor at work. He’s joined by Shit Ro­bot, Dubliner Mar­cus Lam­bkin’s DFA la­bel al­ter-ego who al­ways turns on the style with thrillers and thumpers. Lo­cal flavours from the Jika Jika, Bekuz and Flux crews. Jim Car­roll


Traid­ph­ic­nic Var­i­ous venues all week­end, Spid­dal, Co. Gal­way traid­ph­ic­ Pro­pelled by their “do­nate what you can” ethos, Traid­ph­ic­nic, now in its fourth year, is a three-di­men­sional cel­e­bra­tion of Ir­ish mu­sic, art and cul­ture, with an eclec­tic pro­gramme of events run­ning through­out the week­end. Dublin fid­dler Liam O’Con­nor will launch his ex­cep­tional al­bum The Loom, with a raft of guests in­clud­ing John Blake. Kíla and Skip­pers Al­ley will be there, and Louth fid­dler Zoe Con­way and her hus­band and mu­si­cal col­lab­o­ra­tor John McIn­tyre (above) will part­ner up with lo­cal ac­cor­dion player Johnny Óg Con­nolly. Other guests in­clude sean nós singers Saileog Ní Cheannab­háin and Ailbhe Nic Dhon­n­cha. This prom­ises to be a fine sum­mer gath­er­ing in a wel­com­ing coastal setting. SL


Mu­tate - Lewis Fautzi Grand So­cial Dublin 11.30pm ¤10/¤8 the­grand­so­ An Ir­ish de­but for fast-ris­ing Por­tugese techno star Lewis Fautzi is what’s on the cards on Lif­fey St tonight. It’s only a few years since Fautzi started pro­duc­ing elec­tronic gems and he’s some­one who has al­ready made quite a splash with his pow­er­ful, dark, deep and hyp­notic sounds. A clat­ter of re­leases for such elec­tronic mu­sic im­pri­maturs as Slam’s Soma, Os­car Mulero’s Pole Group and Len Faki’s Fig­ure have es­tab­lished Fautzi’s cre­den­tials. As a DJ, he’s made his bones at such estab­lish­ments as Tre­sor and Berghain in Ber­lin and Gare in Porto. Sup­port from Ir­ish techno vet­eran Jon Hussey who has been work­ing this beat since the Planet Dub night back in the day and who col­lab­o­rated as a pro­ducer with Su­nil Sharpe on the Tri­caus­tic project.

Techno & Cans The Hangar Dublin 10.30pm ¤15/¤12/¤10 The Nether­lands has al­ways been a de­cent source for top-drawer elec­tronic mu­sic pro­ta­gan­ists. In re­cent years, the likes of the Trouw club and the es­sen­tial Dek­man­tel fes­ti­val in Am­s­ter­dam have re­ceived a lot of at­ten­tion, but the list of pro­duc­ers and DJ to keep an eye on also con­tin­ues to grow. Keith Car­nal is one to add to this list, an elec­tronic mu­sic shaper with a strong pro­file through­out Europe. He had an early dal­liance with house grooves be­fore techno and the Am­s­ter­dam scene turned his head. Aside from stand­out shows at places such as Tre­sor in Ber­lin, Fuse in Brus­sels and Con­crete in Paris, Car­nal’s tracks like Un­told and

Anal­y­sis for Af­fin have pushed him for­ward. Sup­port from Aaron and Luke Xan­der. JC
