Kennedy's review Rate it

Thanks in part to resident electro/house DJs like Calvin James, Simon Hayes and Dave Salacious, new life has been breathed into this bar-cum-club venue on Westland Row. Given its proximity to Trinity College, expect a few students, but for the most part the crowd here is terminally trendy. The club night menu changes regularly, so best to consult local listings to see who is playing. For the time being, this place is so hip it hurts.

By MN Presents... - Nov 4 2010

MN presents is delighted to host the I.E. debut of Alan Abraham’s live Bodycode/Portable show in the Underground, Kennedys on Friday 3rd December.
Abrahams has created a unique aesthetic which constantly evolves and draws influences from his own life experiences, past and present. His formative years, spent in South Africa, are evoked through his Portable moniker, where tribal rhythms are arranged alongside more atmospheric indigenous tones. This is juxtaposed to more accessible productions under his Bodycode guise which he conceived during his time in Lisbon. Here, Abrahams has adapted a more dancefloor friendly sound with techno awash with faint vocals and housier melodies, influenced no doubt by his earliest Chi-town records. The combination of elements from both his Bodycode and Portable aliases create a very distinct sound which is too often lacking in modern electronic music. With past and upcoming releases on Spectral Sounds, Süd Electronic, Perlon, Naif, Karat, Scape, Karat, Mutek and Revolver (to name but more than a few) we are very excited to have him over to Dublin at last.

In support we have home-grown talent & analogue freak, Oisin Murphy. A former Electric City and Test stalwart, Oisin has temporarily hung up his record bag (until the after party that is!!) to concentrate on his own music. Fresh from his impressive Space 54 debut last summer, his tweaked and expanded live show is definitely one to check out.
This promises to be a cracking night of live techno not to be missed so make sure to get down!
