Melodic is the brainchild of the Dublin based DJ duo Mulljoy aka Simon Kingston and Shane Mullin. It was launched as a monthly night in December 2011 at The Lost Society Basement on South William Street, Dublin 2.
Mulljoy have played in clubs across Ireland for 2 years. Their approach to music selection and DJing has not gone unnoticed. It helped them secure a residency in POD before furthering their appeal with two international debuts in 2012 in Berlin (Mo Nacht Cafe) & London (Ginglik) with very well received performances. That year also saw Mulljoy make their festival debut with a headline slot in the Guilty Boy Association Dome at the Knockanstockan Festival in Blessington.
Since the launch the guys have hand-picked their most respected DJ's & Producers to realise the Melodic vision. Amazing nights have been delivered by the likes of Edu Imbernon, Tim Green, Los Suruba, Dosem, Negru, Coyu, Pig & Dan, Rainer Weichhold, Gavin Herlihy and Ripperton. The coming months are set to be extremely productive. Having kicked off 2013 with a sold out Ripperton gig we’re looking to keep the momentum going by bringing Andrea Oliva, one of the Cadenza label’s most promising talents, to Dublin for his debut gig.
March 31st sees the launch of our latest venture, Melodic+, in the intimate confines of The Grand Social Loft venue. It’s offering us the opportunity to bring higher profile acts on board and really hammer home our music policy and relevance to the underground music scene in Dublin. The hugely respected Aril Brikha is our debut guest and we’ve secured a second date on the May bank holiday for a similar scale event that’s currently in the planning stages.
Melodic will continue to bring you the best in International guests and the best in Irish talent joined by their residents providing quality melody driven styles of electronic music.
Expect to hear the likes of: Tale of Us, Edu Imbernon, The Kalkbrenners, Solumon, Stimming, Booka Shade, Dosem, Funk D’Void, Layo & Bushwacka, Sasha, Los Suruba, Pig & Dan, John Acquaviva, DJ T, Guy Gerber, Martin Eyerer, Tim Green, Coyu, Namito, Joris Delacroix, Tiger Stripes, Rainer Weichhold, Peter Jurgens, Mihilas Safras and alot, lot more.
