The Gweedore Bar on Waterloo Street is the place to be tonight, Friday, April 19, when Ireland’s leading electronic music festival, Celtronic, present resident DJs from the renowned Berlin club, Panorama Bar, Steffi and Virginia.
Tonight’s event is a precursor to the biggest festival yet, Celtronic 2013, and to build momentum to this year’s festival, organisers are presenting The Berlin Spring, a mini-festival celebrating the influence of the present Berlin electronic music scene.
The Berlin Spring will take place across Derry over 4 nights and 3 weekends and besides tonight’s event with DJs Steffi and Virginia, will feature forthcoming performances from Ben Klock (Berghain), Ame (Innervisions) and Alex Barck/Jazzanova (Sonar Kollektiv).
Steffi has developed a natural and professional balance between DJing and producing. Steffi’s productions explore the many channels of her love with house music, just as you will also hear when you see her controlling the sound system in the club. Always presenting a rich, versatile selection with her skillful, creative mixing style, Steffi continues to distill her huge knowledge and love for this music into her DJ performances.
The talented DJ, Singer, Songwriter and Producer, Virginia has been deeply involved in electronic music for over a decade. Her DJ sets combine the classic house sound with modern records in an exciting fusion, layered with spontaneous live vocals adding a unique third dimension. With a careful mixture of peaks and also moments of reduction, she commands attention in her hybrid DJ / Live performances.
Support tonight from Darren Allen and Deep Fried Funk DJs. Doors: 9.30pm until late and admission: £10/12. Early arrival is advised as numbers are limited.
