Back is the incredible!

So went a classic tune by Public Enemy and this week was very much a case of returning or going back in some form or another. Went back to spin at Suas on Monday after my show. Suas is a really nice bar in the city centre and I was DJing for the launch of Wagamamma's new book. I DJ'd there before at a similar event and it's a really nice bar. It went okay even though I've had bsuier nights but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Another return happened on Thursday as I invited the Impressionists back for an appearance on Teenage Thursdays (see archives for more on them). They are the first act to be invited back and I wanted to acknowledge their recent success in winning the national final of Blast-Beats battle of the bands. Evrything went smooth and I was happy with the interview (pic below of them!))

I don't really do Fridays in the Savoy much but myself and my Jam partner Colm Kenefick decided to DJ together this week and do an end of exam special for Jam. It was stuffed early on and it was great to be back in Jam on a Friday and we now look forward to having some quality nights there over the summer. We have the amazing Giles Peterson this Friday and former World DJ Champ Cash Money returns on July 2nd, the same night as Kanye does his first Cork date. I'm organising a hip-hop week in Cork that week and I've loads of acts lined up, aswell as workshop showcases, radio specials and lots more! I'll post details soon, meanwhile if ya wanna win tickets to Kanye's second gig or exclusive passes to an intimate Republic of Loose gig in RedFM, stay tuned during the week as I'm givin em' away!

I'm probably best known for being one of the main hip-hop/soul DJ's in Cork and Ireland. I've been DJing in Cork since the early 90's in legendary clubnights such as Sweat in Sir Henrys, Mor Disco, Free La Funk, Yo Latino and also Jam and Jam Junior at the Savoy and the Pavilion. I've also held down long term residencies at clubs around Ireland such as Brown Sugar at the Kitchen in Dublin, U-Turn at Ri Ra in Dublin, Jazz Juice at the GPO in Galway, Thompson Garage in Belfast, the Soul Clinic, Dee-Bop, Meltdown and Mo Bounce in Limerick and i've played abroad in the United States and the U.K. on numerous occasions. I also write a music column for the Evening Echo and i'm a regular contributor to the U.K.'s Blues and Soul, the longest running black music magazine in the world. These days i run the Pavilion, a music venue in Cork, which hosts my Jam night every few Fridays also you can catch me at
