Where did you get the name Rosbeg?
‘Rosbeg’ is actually a place in Donegal where I spent my summers as a kid. It’s surrounded by the sea, I try to incorporate as much aquatic and water sounds into my music as I can in homage to it.
It’s kind of weird one, some people are like “That name is awful” haha, some people are into it as well. I dunno maybe I’ll change it at some stage…
You’re a busy man, playing Boxed Off, supporting Eliphino as well as just finishing a pretty packed Summer 2015. Is DJing your full time job or is it evenings & weekends right now?
Initially it was just something that I loved doing in my spare time but now, yeah, I pretty much do it full time. I might play three or four times a week. I truly love it and if there’s a crowd there, then even better.
What are you hoping to achieve in the next 12 months?
Over the next few months I’m hoping to develop a project that I’ve been running with my friends (Ralph & Shane at Grape Magazine) called ‘Palisade’.
We describe it as a ‘Hybrid Club’, an immersive clubbing experience where we aim to manipulate any environment we step into. By using multiple projected visuals, props and the stranger side of dance/club music.
It as much aesthetically driven as the musically. We’re aiming to throw our next big party around Halloween time. As well as this I of course want to get some releases out, I’ve something planned with Widad Records, a sister label to B.YRSLF Division, which should be cool.
So what about this mix you did for us?
I tried to encompass what ROSBEG & PALISADE were about. It has some new tracks/remixes/edits from me, including a new FKA Twigs remix as well as an unreleased track by CLU and some other stuff.
