The Return of Kaboogie and the Demise of the Lower Deck

Just noticed that Kaboogie, organisers of some of Dublin's best nights all year are back next month with CockRockDisco's DuranDuranDuran playing the Ice Bar on August 25th, alongside Planet Mu's the Teknoist, a man whose becoming something of a regular spectre at their nights at this stage. Lets just hope a previous mention of a possible Knifehandchop date returns to their myspace with a confirmation instead of lingering crossed fingers.

was the last gig hosted by Kaboogie, and to celebrate their return to Dublin's moribund nightscape a we present this
collection of mixes of his mixes for your ear to chew on - the recommendation weighs in strongly behind Bouncement. Straight out of Berlin, Zerosound is a blog nicely wedding consistently spot on musical commentary with something of a political and social focus, I'll leave the description of DJ C to them;

"DJ C is an american ragga jungle wizard who runs the Mashit label out of his bedroom in Boston, MA. He published a series of records on labels like Kid606s Shockout, the London-baced Scandal Bag, and his own label. The tunes have been killing club sound-systems and airwaves worldwide. Legendary BBC Radio 1 host John Peel chose Mashit as a "label of the month" in October, 2004 .... DJ C and Debaser did a junglist refix of the Bob Marley classic Crazy Baldheads which has been ruling dance-floors as a dub-plate for some time now. Those who know the tune are familiar with it's message about the oppressor's control over the downtrodden. A pertinent topic in today's environment of oil hungry money grubbers and fundamentalist propagandists read on >>>>."

While it looks like Kaboogie are getting a monthly residency together in Kennedies, there has been an unfortunate further closing of space for independent gigs in the city this week, with Porco Dio's loss of the Lower Deck. If you have any ideas for a new home for this increasingly important outlet for the DIY scene and fundraising enterprise for Dublin's anti-authoritarian left, I'm sure they'd appreciate it if you dropped them a line.

Now, is it just me who is watching the fonts on their blog develop a life of their own?
