THE hiatus for Baker’s Bar ends on Saturday when Sounds Lovely, an occasional live and/or electronic music night turns on the soundsystem and welcomes London based producer, musician and DJ Throwing Snow (pictured above) to the stage, in the big bay windows overlooking Tait’s Clock.
Baker’s is operating under new management, along with its sister bar The Wicked Chicken, which has returned to former cosy corner form with a varied roster of DJ’s - with the rollout across the venue continuing this Saturday.
Look forward to an electric night of eclectic beats and captivating sets from international and local established and emerging artists that bend the corners of genre rounding through dubstep, garage, beats, glitch, UK house and post rock to create their own distinct sets.
Throwing Snow is the headliner for the first Sounds Lovely event, Londoner Ross Tones drawing influences from a vast array of genres encompassing dubstep, UK funky, house and post-rock, while his productions have a consistent comforting warmth and glistening coldness.
Following his compelling debut on Alex Nut’s Ho Tep in late 2010, he has been in constant demand for remixes, lending his cool hand to reworks of tracks by Gold Panda, Kidkanevil and Greymatter.
Radio support from Giles Peterson and Benji B followed with guest appearance on Sinden’s Kiss Fm and Ministry of Sound.
2011 has seen Mr Tones establish two new labels, Left_Blank and Snow Fall, on which he released his own Un Vingt / Cronos Remixed.
Tones appeared at the BUMP! Muzik Festival earlier this summer and proved an amazing live prospect.
Support on the night comes from local men MynameisjOhn, Dugdale and Huey.
See Throwing Snow in Baker’s this Saturday, October 8, entrance through the Wicked Chicken. Tickets are €7 before 10pm, €9 after.
