“The battlefield is a scene of constant chaos. The winner will be the one who controls that chaos, both his own and the enemies.”
Napoleon Bonaparte

BigWar weighs in for the first bout of 2012! The location of the chaotic battlefield will again be the dance floor in the Undergound @ Kennedys. The atmosphere will be thick with industrial broken and 4x4 beats from two of the best techno producers in the world today, Bas Mooy & Radial(aka Jeroen Liebregts). These two are co-owners of the fiercely consistent Audio Assault label from The Netherlands. The label was founded in 2002, followed up by subabel ARMS in 2003. Since its begining it has gathered more and more followers across planet earth. Many years now the masterminds Bas Mooy and Jeroen Liebregts have guarded the imprints pure underground vibe and mechanical roughness with their life! Both men are established as solo producers and as part of various collabs. Their stunningly powerful sound has triggered the imagination of many. They bring you high quality no-nonsense techno from established as well as upcoming producers from all over the world including Dublin's own Fran Hartnett. Just listen through the Audio Assaullt catalogue and you will witness a mind blowing, solid concept. We are very excited to say Bas Mooy and Radial will play one hour each and then back to back for the final hour, a scuffle never before witnessed in Ireland. Speaking of which, t he Irish talent doing support on the night is our own resident and promoter Keylockd. This confused youth plays dnb, electro, getto tech and everything and anything inbetween but he mainly focuses on the harder side of the techno spectrum. RUMBLE!

Death in Vegas DJ Set (RICHARD FEARLESS)

With all the shadowy enigma of Neu! or Throbbing Gristle, one of the most exciting and unique artists to emerge from the ’90s UK dance scene, is making a stealthy return. Richard Fearless, aka Death In Vegas, cut some of that era’s most unusual records, fusing electro, dub, rock, psychedelia, soul and solid-gone experimentation to create a sound that was spacious and other-worldly, while also segueing with the pop mainstream.

After seven turbulent years, which have seen him up sticks for New York, form a raw-power rock & roll band, and eventually move back to London again, Fearless is back as Death In Vegas, releasing his first record under that alias since 2004’s ‘Satan’s Circus’.

Called ‘Trans Love Energies’, it marks a return to his roots in minimal techno, deploying the rudimentary gear behind all the classics of the original Detroit/Chicago era to try and spirit up fresh atmospheres. It’s the kind of eerie, nocturnal and often compulsively toxic record, which only Fearless could make, yet which feels thrillingly of-the-moment. His time is now, once again.


Since November 2005, Niall Byrne aka Nialler9 (pronounced like the river in Egypt – Nile-r) has been enthusing about the music he loves whether it be indie, electronica, hip-hop, folk, dubstep or rock. The genre doesn’t matter as long as it’s great. As Duke Ellington said “There are two kinds of music. Good music, and the other kind.”

Nialler9 is the most-read Irish music blog with around 35,000 unique visitors per month. The site has been a recipient of five consecutive awards in the Irish Blog Awards for Best Music Blog (2007-2011) as well as Best Music Site at the Irish Web Awards in 2009. Most recently, Nialler9 was voted the 5th Best Music Blog In The World in a poll of music blogging peers. Contributors include Aoife Mc (voice of the Podcast) who also runs I Can Has Cook? and the Right Click Radio show on RTE 2XM.
