Up next on the Mixtape, we have rising Irish star Caoimhe. Since starting her DJ career in early 2019, Caoimhe has become a regular on stage alongside others such as Honey Dijon, Patrick Topping, Dusky, Disclosure and Sally C. As usual, we fired over some questions to get to know her and the mix more:
This year has been off to a great start for me. I’ve recently started a new monthly residency at Misfit in Thompsons Garage, the longest running club in Belfast. I was invited onto BBC Radio 1 lunchtime show to co-host the show with presenters Vicky and Dean, and have a chat about the country’s music scene. At the start of March, I travelled to Berlin to record a set at Hor, the world’s most famous bathroom, for the second time!
My partner and I have just bought our first house together, so I’m very happy to say that this mix was the first I’ve recorded in our new home. It was recorded using my CDJ’s and Xone 43c mixer.
The inspiration behind this mix comes off the back of a recent gig that I played at an event called ‘Plan B’. It was my first time headlining a show in Belfast, so I wanted to showcase some of the music I played on the night. I’ve included a lot of peak time rollers to mirror the high energy from the main room. I can honestly say that it was one of the best nights of my life. The event was held in an old Masonic Hall in East Belfast. It reminded me of what I think clubbing would have been like before my time and one of the most receptive crowds I’ve ever played to. I would like to dedicate this mix to the Plan B crew.
What are you up to next?
I look forward to continuing my Misfit Residency at Thompsons Garage. I am really excited to be playing at AVA festival again. In the coming months, I am also playing at Emerge Festival, Belfast, and Wildroots Festival in Sligo.
