PCPRaidio: Smeary Sméar

DJ PCP / Sixfoot Apprentice

A show from a couple of weeks ago.  The Deviant ep is the most important Irish electronic/dance record ever. The first reason it is so important is that is very good. The second reason is that it is Irish dance music that sounds Irish. To Irish underground music ears this is usually a bad thing. It’s associated with the usual clichéd high kicking , wooly jumpered folk images and more recent cringers; Cotton eyed Joe, Bewitched , Afro Celtic sound system, bad trad mash up amongst others….

A show from a couple of weeks ago.

The Deviant ep is the most important Irish electronic/dance record ever. The first reason it is so important is that is very good. The second reason is that it is Irish dance music that sounds Irish. To Irish underground music ears this is usually a bad thing. It’s associated with the usual clichéd high kicking , wooly jumpered folk images and more recent cringers; Cotton eyed Joe, Bewitched , Afro Celtic sound system, bad trad mash up amongst others.

Great, successful Irish dance records are so conspicuous by their absence (leaving aside the other reasons such as until recently the lack of any diasporic communities or strong counter cultural movements) because of this squirming discomfort with Irish culture.

Most Irish electronic music producers imitate. They imitate every electronic music culture. They will never succeed. Or if they do it will be pastiche and it will be too late.

My will post soon as to why this is the case.
