A Drum and Bass Bike DJ is coming to Dublin this weekend

Words: Ellen Kenny

DJ Dom Whiting is bringing his turntables and his bike with Drum and Bass on the Bike to Dublin to Dublin on Sunday 14 August.

Do you ever wish you could have the excitement of the club combined with the thrill of nearly getting hit by a car? Well look no further than DJ Dom Whiting’s Drum and Bass on a Bike.

Whiting became somewhat of an internet sensation during lockdown. When the nightclubs were closed, he took his talent on to two wheels. On a custom-made three-wheeled bike with turntables attached to the handlebars, Dom began DJing and cycling in cities across the UK.

Dom began livestreaming his musical cycles online. Soon, he grew a large following for providing some good vibes during lockdown. The events have become so popular they formed part of BBC’s coverage of the Euro 2021 tournament.

Even though festivals are back, Dom has kept cycling. His mobile electronic music have gathered huge crowds to follow him on his bike. Now, he’s bringing the party to Dublin on Sunday, 14 August.

The cycle will start on Hugh Lane at 14:00. Dom told District that he will be taking cyclists through O’Connell Street and Temple Bar before finishing at Grand Canal. Dom has already practiced the route himself and promises a great journey for all involved.

“I think the Irish cycling community will greatly enjoy my Drum & Bass on the bike visit to Dublin,” Dom told District.

“The Irish are pretty wild and I think the DnB bike rides fit in a correlate with that perfectly, as well as there being a great scene for sustainable travel.”

Dublin certainly isn’t know for extensive and manageable cycle lanes, or kind drivers. But who knows? Maybe a bit of DnB will bring us all together.

The cycle is free of charge, and Dom will announce the full route on Twitter in the coming days.
