There are a number of dance acts in recent years who have made something of a habit of returning to Dublin for special occasions and none fits that bill more aptly than Italian house and techno stalwarts Flashmob who have performed at a succession of massive shows in recent times. The duo which consists of Alessandro Magani and his long time collaborator Danny Minchella have plotted a vastly successful route through the underground over the past few years following the massive success of their breakout record Need In Me (just over 5 million plays on Youtube) and a series of successful follow ups including Hot, Pieces and remixes for Pet Shop Boys and FCL.
The pair have consistently toed the line between raw underground and the mainstream with considerable success. Championed by everyone from Pete Tong to Kerri Chandler they have etched out a niche for themselves in the worldwide house scene. More recently they made a distinct move back to their underground roots with an ep on their very own Flashmob records. Teaming up with classy vocalists Kevin Knapp and Hector Moralez for Who/Do You Do the Italians have produced two slices of stripped back house which has caused some big waves this summer, particularly amongst djs on the island of Ibiza with the likes of Maya Jane Coles supporting in pretty much every set.
September marks a timely return for the Defected associated act with a large crowd expected at Dublin’s Button Factory for an act that has done three sold out shows in Ireland in the last calender year as well as an incredible free party for their fans last February. With a reputation that goes before them as quality djs you can be sure the atmosphere in Temple Bar this Friday will be unforgettable. WWD recommended.
