With nightclubs opening up again on the 22nd of October, it’s only natural that you’re going to want to get your cans of Orchard Thieves, pick up a few red cups in Tesco, and head to some random person’s gaff for an almighty session. But what happens if someone hands you the AUX cord and you have nothing to offer? You might as well pack up your things and make your way back home for a takeaway and an early night.
Well, we’ve got you covered. Here are the top new Irish tracks to blast over the speakers and make sure that YOU are the life of the party. Hit it, DJ!
Elaine Mai ft. Ailbhe Reddy - Still Feel
A warm, summery dance-pop track that will have you hopping around the floor when the beat drops. You might be in your mate’s flat in Cabra, but you’ll feel like you’re in Stradbally on a warm August bank holiday weekend.
Rushes - Funds
The debut mixtape from Cork native Rushes is short and sweet, and Funds’ especially groovy bassline will be perfect to kick your night off. This will satisfy the Workman crew, who are going to be talking about how “introspective” they’ve grown in the last year.
AV9 - Millian
Drill is taking the hip-hop scene by storm as a breeding ground for exciting talent, and AV9 are flying the flag high for Ireland. Stick this tune on if you fancy a moshpit in the kitchen, but just try not to knock over the beer pong table.
Inhaler - It Won’t Always Be Like This
A fist pumping anthem from Dublin’s latest rock quartet. Feel free to nudge that one you’ve been chatting up all night and say “did ye know that’s Bono’s son?”.
Carrie Baxter - Something in the Water
The perfect track to get people to groove their way towards the taxi into town. You’ll be humming the chorus all the way into Dicey’s in no time.
We haven’t even scratched the surface of some of Ireland’s hottest artists, so be sure to keep your eyes (and ears!) peeled for brand new music to add to your playlist. Happy seshing!
