Phil Kieran has been in the upper echelons of the electronic music game for more than a decade, known for rocking clubs and releasing a killer twelveĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s. Cutting his teeth at the legendary acid house club Shine in Belfast, PhilĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s impeccable DJ reputation has won him top 20 placingĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s in DJ magazineĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s global 100 DJs poll. With over 100 dance-floor releases to his name on quality labels like Cocoon, Skint, Soma and NovaMute and his own imprint Phil Kieran Recordings, as well contributing to the soundtrack for the Steven Soderbergh filmĂ˘â‚¬ËśThe Girlfriend Experience,Ă˘â‚¬â„˘with fellow Irish compatriot David Holmes, it is fair to say that Phil Kieran is an established and respected producer.
It is a great pleasure for Gigolo Records to release two more Killer Cuts from Phil Kieran and welcome him to our roster of artists. On the A-side we haveĂ˘â‚¬ËśLove WishĂ˘â‚¬â„˘sounding like a lost techno lament to an erstwhile sound that could only come from a producer with Experience. Never showy, the track builds carefully introducing strings at the final pay-off. On the b-side we have the amazingĂ˘â‚¬ËśOdd Ball,Ă˘â‚¬â„˘again a master-class in reserved arrangements that hold the dance-floor solidly, delivering subtle, yet powerful, pay-offs at every turn. As the strings lead us into the inevitable breakdown the anticipation will make the heart beat like a f****d clock; a sentiment echoed in the rhythmic drop. Truly mind-affirming techno for the body!
