After Jape’s reworking of We Cut Corners’ last single ‘Best Friend’ comes Daithí’s remix of ‘Blue’. It’s the second track on We Cut Corners‘ second album Think Nothing, which is out in Ireland next Friday, April 25. I’ve had a couple of listens to it at this stage; first thoughts – it’s as electrifying as […]

Daithi have to go

As festival season kicks into gear (Electric Picnic announces its lineup tomorrow, Wednesday, at noon; Beck, Portishead and Outkast, anybody? And Indiependence in Mitchelstown, Cork, reveals its first names on Thursday evening), you can almost hear Daithí packing his violin, synths and wellies readying for a busy few months. Because rest assured, he will probably […]


Daithí offers a nice way to end the week and start the weekend. ‘Case Closed’ is the second taster of the Galway producer’s newfound heavyweight dancefloor chops, following on from ‘Chameleon Life‘. It’s produced by Ian Ring of Young Wonder while Senita Appiakorang, lead singer in Cork soul/funk band Moustache Latte and currently part of […]

There are also lots of Irish acts who’ll be playing across three stages from June 21-23. The full […]

The final few acts have been announced for Body & Soul, which takes place in Ballinlough Castle, Co Westmeath, on June 21-23. Daithí, who last week revealed his new single ‘Chameleon Life’, and Overhead, the Albatross are among the Irish faces added to the festival. I said a couple weeks ago that Daithí should be […]

Camden Crawl Dublin returns this weekend for its second year of showcasing the best of Irish and international acts. There are about 150 acts and comedians performing in tonnes of venues around the capital. To help you navigate your way from venue to venue, I’ve put this guide together of the Irish artists that should […]

Oh man this is just so good. Daithi is already one of the stars of the Irish music scene – if you’ve seen him live you’ll know what I mean. I like that he’s taking his time on new material too, not rushing anything. But I’m so happy that he decided to remix ‘Poison’ by […]
