Ivan Smagghe - 5 Hour set - Sunday June 3rd @ Big Dish Go in The Underground



Big Dish Go welcome back their favourite son and international resident DJ, Ivan Smagghe for his latest instalment of the “A Few Things From Ivan Smagghe” series, with an epic 5 hour set in store. This will be Ivan’s first night playing solo in Ireland since November 2010. His last couple of outings he was accompanied by Andrew Weatherall and Roman Flugel on the decks for what were two amazing nights of music. As always we are very excited about his return to rock The Underground once again.

Ivan Smagghe belongs to a top table of DJs that journalists often describe as “The DJ’s DJ”. Along with the likes of occasional partner-in-crime Andrew Weatherall, Ivan has the ability to play music like a raw conduit between his famously obscure records and the dancefloor’s strobe-soaked bodies, injecting something of himself seamlessly into the mix along the way.

His genre defying/defining production work originally with Black Strobe and now in It’s A Fine Line (who have recently finished Battant’s second LP, As I Ride with No Horse) has connected him to and garnered the praise of (amongst others) James Murphy, Trevor Jackson, Ata, Optimo and the aforementioned Weatherall. All fellow crusaders in the fight to prove that electronic music can be so much more than a one dimensional soundtrack for a night on the lash.

The success of his musical blog ‘a few things from Ivan Smagghe’ has generated a compilation series of edits for Paris uber-fashion store Colette. The first volume sold out in a couple of weeks. His project with Tim Paris, It’s A Fine Line, has already put out numerous remixes (from Superpitcher to the XX) and releases that can be often difficult to categorise (try electro rockabilly on Kompakt to italo rickety disco on Marketing Music). Their new studio is now fully set for original music, remixes and production. Expect a lot more from them in 2012.

Aside from his A&R role for now the 10 year old label Kill The DJ (where he has released the first EP of RMVN, a project with both Ivan and Roman Flugel), Ivan has also started solo work (a noted remix for Parisian label Meant) as well as more planned collaborations with musical friends (Ewan Pearson and Tiga being first on the list).

You can catch Ivan subverting the masses on any given weekend, all around the world.
