Clubbing at The Tivoli!

The Tivoli Theatre,on Francis St, Dublin, has been transformed into a €3 million, 1,200 capacity venue and is set to become Ireland's leading celebrity hangout.

Tivoli, as it will now be known, will provide clubbers with a 21st Century nightclub that exemplifies the very best that Ireland has to offer in terms of image, service and style with a discerning music policy. In what will be the inaugural "first" for the club, Tivoli is being fitted out with a top-of-the-range €500,000 turbo sound rig that is the first of its kind in the world - the DMX Light Control Digital Surround Sound system. Be assured that the people behind Tivoli will be responsible for many more "firsts" in the future.

It's not just the sound system that will impress. The club's interior comprises stylish and comfortable elevated seating areas surrounding a large dancefloor, boasting a range of contemporary design styles with a retro edge. The VIP area is situated on an elevated site that will allow its patrons to view the club in comfort and without obstruction. And there's even ample car parking on site!

The all important music policy won't disappoint either as Tivoli has plans afoot to secure the world's biggest, most credible dance names in the industry on a regular basis. According to Peter May, the man responsible for one of the country's most successful clubs, Genius: "Admission prices at Tivoli will be kept as low as possible because unlike other major promoters we won't charge exorbitant prices for the DJ's that people want."

Starting as they mean to go on; the team secured superstar DJ David Holmes for what could be his last DJ set as he prepares to concentrate on his burgeoning Hollywood career doing movie scores. Tivoli's crew have also netted themselves another coup by securing a world exclusive with dance supergroup Orbital for their first ever DJ set on the 30th of March. Local DJ's needn't stress, as nurturing homegrown talent is highly important to Tivoli's team.

Redsettaz biography

Redsettaz Barry and Dave met in somewhat unusual circumstances - a police
cell in Donnybrook after a particularly unfortunate night out. Despite
this and Dave's fondness for black eyeliner - they discovered a mutual love of
music for dancing to. Both having been reasonably successful at attempting
to DJ beforehand (Barry in various night-clubs in the West, Dave at a
junior disco on the Dublin to Holyhead ferry) they decided two are better than
one and formed Redsettaz.

Learning their four-deck trade in the notoriously cutting-edge UCD bar,
they supported Dublin hero DJ Wool one night, and, a few kind words later, he
hooked up them with the now-defunct Munki crew in 1998. Then they started to
play in places with lots of lights and more than one emergency exit: the
Mean Fiddler (now Mono), RiRa, Liquid, Sir Henry's and, most regularly, the
Funnel - the scene of some of their best shows.

In late 1999, they began working with Ireland's top independent promoters,
Influx, and were soon offered a residency in Influx's long-running
Thursday night in the Kitchen. Gigs in Temple Bar Music Centre, RiRa, Redbox, Issac
Butts, Switch, PoD, Temple Theatre, GPO in Galway, the Forum in Waterford,
Temple Of Sound in Limerick, 303 in Camolin, Stables in Mullingar, Scream
and the Savoy in Cork and, of course, appearances in the Influx/Redbox
arenas at the last two Homelands festivals followed.

Current residencies include a prime biweekly Saturday slot at Influx's new
Tivoli venture, a monthly Redbox slot, once a month for respected techno
promoters Genius and regular once-offs in the likes of the Forum, Waterford,
the GPO, Galway, Kitchen in Dublin, Gravity in Dublin. They were also
recently nominated in the Best Breakthrough Act in the 2002 Smirnoff Award.

Barry has recently stared hosting a weekly show, Filter, on Spin1038 in
Dublin. It goes out on Friday nights and brings the best in new music from
across the board, alongside DJ mixes, guests, giveaways etc.

Outside of DJing, Barry was the deputy editor and music editor of Clubbingdotcom
magazine, and dance writer for HotPress alongside Richard Brophy.

Bugged Out Returns!

Influx & Bugged Out Presents....

JUSTIN ROBERTSON
ANDREW WEATHERALL

Philth
Saturday 1st Feb 2003
Club Tivoli
Francis Street
Dublin Eight

Doors 10.30pm - late
Adm. 16.90 Euro incl. booking fee
*Tickets available from Ticketmaster



Justin Robertson
Justin Robertson has plotted a successful career as a DJ, remixer, and producer (the latter under his own name as well as Lionrock). Aloof from the limelight and popular almost despite himself, Robertson took an almost laughably conventional route to a level of success reached by probably less then one percent of dance music producers.

A native of Manchester, Robertson earned a degree in philosophy before taking a job as (what else) a record clerk in the Eastern Bloc record shop, where he began collecting the funkier side of progressive house and DJing on a regular basis. After remixing a track for Mad Jack on in-house label Creed (his mix of "Feel the Hit" became something of an underground smash), Robertson was subsequently flagged down by the likes of the Shamen, Candyflip, the Sugarcubes, and Erasure to lend his evolving signature to their material. As his style matured, he became associated with the burgeoning Balearic scene (a hodgepodge subcategory of house encompassing a range of influences, from rock and R&B to disco and garage). Robertson released his solo debut, "Roots and Culture"/"Lionrock," on his own Most Excellent label in 1992. After raising a few brows and spawning another round of remix work, Robertson was courted by pop/dance label Deconstruction, with whom he signed in 1993.
Robertson released an additional EP, Packet of Peace, on Deconstruction in April of 1993 before settling in to record his full-length debut. Released late the following year as Lionrock, An Instinct for Detection was an ambitious effort to say the least, featuring scads of instrumentation resolutely untraditional by U.K. dance music standards, mixed and matched with dirty house breaks and aggressive but accessible arrangements. Although the record was met warmly, its subtle abuse of pop (in the Beach Boys -- not the Mariah Carey -- sense) was lost on many, and it remains something of a cult favorite. Robertson embarked on an elaborate tour following the album's release, and the presence of guitars, percussion, and drum kit on the stage of a Lionrock show became standard from word go. In 1996, the popular mix CD series Journeys by DJ contracted a mixed set from Robertson, resulting in a massive two-disc set spanning the range not only of Lionrock's influences, but of the last two decades of electronic dance music as a whole. Robertson continued to be a popular remixer, and Lionrock releases -- including 1998's City Delirious -- appeared on a sporadic basis until he ditched the designation for his first production album under his own name, 2001's Revtone.

One of the UK's most respected players and most versatile covering all bases - techno, electro, deep house, twisted funk, experimental & downtempo.
Andy Weatherall
One of the UK's most respected players and most versatile covering all bases - techno, electro, deep house, twisted funk, experimental & downtempo.

Numerous projects in the studio most recently as Two Lone Swordsmen with Keith Tenniswood who together signed with the formidable Warp Records. '98 saw the 'Blue Sparks' EP followed by the album 'Stay Down'. An EP 'A Virus With Shoes' and remix project was released in '99, 'Tiny Reminders' 2000 and their new remix project 'Further Reminders' is now.

Andrew's exclusive London residency is for our very own 'Haywire Sessions' every 1st Friday of the month at 93FeetEast.. He can also be found making regular appearances throughout the UK and overseas. Last year saw his Two Lone Swordsmen tour 'Turnatables & Machines' with more dates to follow this year, including Fuji Festival in Japan and 2 dates in Holland September.

Weatherall's new label RGC Records saw three excellant 12"s out this year with an album from Radioactive Man released on 17th September. Watch out for the RGC Tour kicking off in September... download 'press pack' for more Weatherall info and check www.rottersgolfclub.co.uk

NEWS JUST IN>>>>>>>>

As we've all already seen in the past few months here in club tivoli , the addition of the drum'n'bass room upstairs has added a dimension to the club not really seen in Dublin before. Goldie in the main auditorium, Bassbin residents on new years eve, Grooverider with Slam, and Zinc with Billy nasty, the list goes on and on. Now to add to the list is leading UK we've PESHAY, along side Dublin stalwart Razor. (Full peshay biog. below) Having collected the 'Best Drum & Bass DJ 2001' at the prestigious Ibiza club, Pacha (alongside other key industry players such as Roger Sanchez, David Morales and Carl Cox) Peshay is definitely hot on people's minds as they eagerly await his next move... we await his visit with glee!!!

Peshay. Biog

Peshay's rise through the drum'n'bass scene has been nothing short of meteoric. Respected worldwide for his releases on labels such as Metalheadz, Good Looking, Mo Wax and Island to name but a few.
His ability to DJ and produce at the highest levels have won him praise and admiration from anyone fortunate enough to have heard one of his many classic releases or see him perform behind a set of decks. His excellence behind the decks is legendary.
When he DJs, 4 minute mixes are the norm and the excitement that he generates describe Peshay perfectly..
Meeting Goldie one evening led to Peshay meeting Dego and Gus at REINFORCED. This led to the "PROTÉGÉ EP" that first brought Peshay into the spotlight. The EP smashed it and this led to an increase in Peshays DJ work.
At a Dreamscape event in 1992 LTJ Bukem introduced himself to Peshay it was this meeting that eventually led to a joint collaboration which produced "19.5" and Peshays first solo outings, the awesome PIANO & VOCAL TUNES, now all acclaimed classics for the GOOD LOOKING imprint.
.
After a couple of projects for BASEMENT RECORDS which include FUTURAMA and ROLL THE BEATS Peshay produced "PSYCHOSIS", "PREDATOR", "ON THE NILE" and "NOCTURAL" as well as a host of remixes for METALHEADZ. Peshay also contributed to the acclaimed "LOGICAL PROGRESSION" and "PLATINUM BREAKS" albums with FFRR as well as being chosen to remix both releases from the acclaimed album "TIMELESS" by GOLDIE, as well as stinging remixes of LTJ Bukem's "MUSIC" and Galliano's "FREEFALL".
. By the end of 1998 Peshay finally found himself at ISLAND RECORDS. The critically acclaimed album "Miles from Home" released on Island Blue Records, a subsiduary of Island Records.
Peshays remix credits include artists such as GALLIANO, JAYDEE, JOHN COLTRANE, PHOTEK, CARL CRAIG, GOLDIE, INGRID SCHROEDER, LTJ BUKEM and COURTNEY PINE to name but a few. Always choosing to remix tunes he personally likes has produced an impressive catalogue of quality dance tracks.
The success of his last album 'MILES FROM HOME' released on Island Records in 1999, saw his talent recognised across the globe. Peshay gained the type of publicity that only a select few of the Drum and Bass fraternity had gained before, including being on the front page of the Irish Times, getting rave reviews in both Australia and the U.S.A. and being idolised in Japanese journals.
He also gained wide acclaim at home in the U.K. with MUZIK, MIXMAG, DJ, MINISTRY and FRONT, as they all voted MILES FROM HOME album of the month..
Peshay's new album, 'Fuzion', is varied and bursting with character..
Some of the tracks contain a high paced energy, making them the type of thing you'd love to hear loud on a nightclub dance floor, whilst others are set at a slower pace containing enticing female vocals to give a more soulful sassy feel to them, typically being the type of tune you'd enjoy hearing in the middle of a hot lazy summer's afternoon. Overall, FUZION takes on influences from funk, disco, soul & house and fuzes them together in drum & bass style to create the unique blend of sounds which best describe both Peshay and this album.
With Mixmag, Ministry, Muzik & Jockey Slut, DJ, Knowledge all selecting both the single 'You Got Me Burning' and the album 'Fuzion' as their review of the month. When Radio 1 producers were sent copies of the single it was soon heard on morning radio shows by Sarah Cox, Jo Whiley & Cris Moyles, through to evening sessions by Pete Tong, Mary Ann Hobbs, Giles Peterson and of course Fabio & Grooverider. At this point it didn't take long before Dave Pierce selected it as his overall single of the week on his peak hour drive-time show on Radio 1, listened to by millions of viewers each week night.
Having collected the 'Best Drum & Bass DJ 2001' at the prestigious Ibiza club, Pacha (alongside other key industry players such as Roger Sanchez, David Morales and Carl Cox) Peshay is definitely hot on people's minds as they eagerly await his next move...

INFLUX proudly presents

UMEK
Philth



Friday 28th February 2003
Club Tivoli
Francis Street
Dublin Eight




Doors 10.30pm - late
Adm. 16.90euro incl. booking fee. On Sale from Ticketmaster



Born in 1976 Lubljana, Slovenia, Uros Umek began DJing in 1993 while he pioneered large scale techno parties with some of his friends in his home country which quickly became the county's favourite. Through his hard work creating these parties, techno became the most popular form of music in Slovenia and made him a very popular individual. He is the most popular and most famous DJ in Slovenia, his nickname is "Votter", which means father..

He currently co-owns runs Consumer Recreation Records, as well as releasing on, amongst others, Tortured (as Mumps), Planet Rhythm, Audio, Missile, Communique. His current style is the combination of many different roots, which the more long term Umek fans may recognise. Starting with a rough, uncompromising edge he quickly built a reputation in the studio.

More recently he has developed a new funkier sound highlighted on his last double pack on Tortured under his Mumps guise, a real winner due to its funked up style - this was Carl Cox's number 1 record for 3 months. Recent productions included the hugely successful Recycled Loops (with close friend Valentino) and as Zeta Reticular on Billy Nasty's electro label, Electrix.

The last two years have been massive for Umek, with him being voted into DJ Magazines top 100 DJs in 2002.
He now stands as one of techno highest profile names, with DJing skills and production that far outstrips many of his contemporaries.

2002 saw him release the Torture Chamber Vol 2, plus an experimental album on Technika, showing the depth of his talent.

Wasn't as good as last time round but still deadly.
