Restless Nights Present Saoirse All Night Long tickets
The Island, Restless Nights If her recent mix for Resident Advisor is anything to go by, Saoirse is a DJ capable of covering serious ground.

Cybernetic oddities are deployed seamlessly amongst glitching breakbeats and uptempo techno rollers. If she can cram this much into an hour and a half, how much can we expect from 5?
