The Fuse resident is a true purveyor of the Brussels underground as DJ and producer since 1993, he's considered by many as a man with multiple musical talents: from straight-up dance floor jackin' techno to advanced abstract electronica. His music has been released on his own labels Time To Express and Foton as well as through Berlin's Lan Muzic, the mysterious Komisch and Brussels-based Meakusma. Last year also saw him release the high regarded album "Entropic City" He's active as a DJ, producer, sound designer and composer for contemporary dance and theatre.

Brian Carins

On warm up duties will be long term DJ Brain "Madzer" Cairns as he makes his Test debut. Brian's been knocking around Dublin for a good few years now, currently involved with Rob Hatchell & Jay Grogan in Dublin's techno night 'Discipline'. The Discipline night is relatively new, however they are leading the way with their own take on industrial techno and general Cairnage(see what we did there). Their night has already seen top guests such as DJ Skirt and Hoth Systehm rock the Mezz room in the Twisted Pepper. We here at the Test bunker are big fans of Discipline and Brian's mixes. Madzer's well known for his tougher take on techno, however this night will see him show his range and take a more deeper approach than usual.

Brians mixes

Paudi Ahern

Legend has it that on a stormy night in Kerry many moons ago, three wise men appeared after traveling through the desert storm bearing three gifts. Two of the men carried a turntable, the other a mixer. A sudden bolt of light exploded and through the haze of mist appeared one man dressed in nothing but a Wu Tang T-shirt .
This freak of nature, with slick assassin like DJ skills has been Banging Techno Clubs across Kerry, Cork and Dublin ever since. Some call this man Jesus, others simply some call him "The Prez". Call him what you like, this man's got mad skillz.
