Ep. 50: Resist (Koichi Samuels & Liam McCartan)

This week I chat to techno musicians Koichi Samuels and Liam McCartan about RESIST – a series of live events showcasing electronic music and visual artists in Belfast.  Their next show is Friday 21 April at The Black Box (tickets here).

I ask Koichi and Liam about Belfast’s thriving electronic music scene and get a taste of the acts that will be performing live at the RESIST event.  Koichi will be performing live with Helena Hamilton for the debut of their new collaboration – Kandehha – a fusion of soundscape, drone and ambient electronic rhythms.

The line-up also features live sets from Four Sides Records founder Kapoor  (ambient inspired techno) and Derry-based Autumns (lofi/noise/shoegaze).

Also on the line-up are sets from eclectic house/techno DJ Marion Hawkes (Ponyhawke / GIRL) and experimental/ambient Liam McCartan; as well as visuals by Barry Cullen (Barry’s Electronic Workshop).
