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. Spanning 40 tracks in 90 minutes, from artists as far-flung as Shackleton, Arca, Bjarki and Calibre Dnb, the mix moves deftly between eras, genres and time-zones at breakneck speed. 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?

From events on Tuesday
“Lithuanian songstress Jausmé offers ‘silky, dreamy jazzy vocals’ accompanied by the ethereal sound of the Kankles, a traditional lap-harp. Sometimes she jams with the birds in the woods but tonight she’ll be sharing her own songs.”
