Easter is upon us and its time for the 3rd installment of Re:Publiks monthly techno session, Re: Tech on March 22nd. This month, as its Easter, it's been moved with residential duties being taken up by Alan Harris who will be joined by Wexford wizard Darren Rice and Deano.
After 8 years hard slog & countless bottles of bleach, Darren Rice is now a familiar name on the Irish dance scene with appearances at numerous clubs, and club nights, throughout the country. The infamous Clubspace/Lamberts in Wexford, Revolution, Acii Disco, Panama Jacks, South, Exile, Gatecrasher, Meganite, Godskitchen & the now legendary Temple Theatre in Dublin have all featured in a by now, pretty coloured gigography.
Currently Darren Rice presents "The Saturday Selection" weekly at 10pm on Ireland's first ever regional radio station "Beat 102-103", broadcasting the latest tracks & mixes all over Wexford, Waterford, Carlow, Kilkenny & South Tipperary.
On support duty will be local cat Deano. Deano has been djin a few years now and has played at several nights around town. His diverse taste in music makes his dj sets very interesting. He is at ease playing all kinds of sounds from deep house to minimal techno.
Doors open 11pm entrance through Electric Avenue & admission 8 euro.
DEEP makes his RePublik Debut at The Loft on Easter Sunday, March 23rd, with support on the night coming from some of the cream of the local deep house scene with RePublk's Gavin Boyce and Martin Roche being joined by Rob Heenan & Ian Dalton.
One of the most revered members of the French house scene, DJ Deep has made it his duty to share deep house beats with a growing global audience! He started djing about 12 years ago. At the time House music was definitely an underground movement and the French scene was just starting to develop. Laurent Garnier gave DJ Deep his "first chance" to DJ, first at club Boy in Paris for the Oz parties, then at club Le Palace for the Zoo parties. At the same time, DJ Deep started to host his radio show on radio FG 98.2, everyday from noon to 2 PM. A year after he invited his dj friends, DJ Gregory and DJ Alex from Tokyo to join him and the show was then named "A Deep Groove" where you could hear everything from Mos Def to Jeff Mills, with a true passion for real deep underground House music.
As DJ Deep became a key figure of the Parisian scene he put together "What's Up Mix It" with friends from the label What's up, this compilation featured for the first time together artists such as Dimitri from Paris, DJ Cam, Saint Germain, Gilb'r, and a track of his own "Sweet Summer Vibe".
In 1995 the famous "Wake up" parties were launched by the French Legend Laurent Garnier at the Rex Club featuring prestigious guests such as Lil' Louis, Derrick May, DJ Pierre, Ron Trent, Chez Damier, etc. DJ Deep was the resident "warm up" Dj. Soon after DJ Deep moved from radio FG to Radio Nova, for his Saturday night shows (this adventure on Nova lasted for about 5 years!)
In 1997 "the fire" and "the earth" EP's came out on French label Basenotic under the moniker The Deep, those 12" were produced by Julien Jabre and DJ Deep receiving great support from the likes of Louie Vega and Joe Claussell...
Whilst 'Deep has played Waterford before, this will be the first time that you get to catch him in a venue such as The Loft, where the intimate vibes and top atmosphere are second to none. This truly will not be a gig to miss. We would advise to arrive early.
Doors open at 10pm admission is €12.

Once in a blue moon. As rare as hen's teeth. A Government success. Each of those three sentences are as unusual and as rare as each other. But the last one seems to be about to take place. The Government has announced that it plans to give each child in the State a second year of free pre-school. It might not sound like earth shattering news but if it does happen then it could be one of the most significant things that this Government has done since it took office. Any money that is given over to education is a …
