Featuring Greg Tisdall, Chameleon and a host of District DJs, we’re taking over the entirety of Workman’s this Friday for a festive night out you won’t forget.
Ah Workman’s. A hub for Dublin’s creative scene and music culture, wrapped in a lot of fun, messy and nostalgic memories. What better place to celebrate the festive season, our achievements from this year and our hopes for the next?
District has invited the very best of Dublin’s creative scene to usher in the Christmas holidays with ‘A Very Workman’s Christmas’. Producer, songwriter and performer Greg Tisdall will be treating us to a live set. While not bound by genre, he’s been described as “one of the artists on the forefront of future R&B in Ireland”.
He’ll be joined by alternative/indie and R&B artist/producer Chameleon After winning the national ‘Local Hero Award’ competition last year, he went on to release a single with Rubyworks Label titled ‘Show Me Where Your Heart Is’, which reached number 2 on the Irish Breakers Chart. Chameleon’s sound is eclectic, reflecting his influence from artists such as Bon Iver, James Blake, Radiohead, EDEN and Fontaines D.C.
We can’t wait to see what these two innovative acts bring to the Workman’s main room this Friday. Tickets are from 10 euro and are available via Eventbrite.
The line-up also features Dublin-native Tolentechno, known for his energetic sets that blend Trance, Techno, Gabber, and Donk. He has a passion for fast-paced, hard-hitting music with iconic vocal samples, and this is evident in the bootlegs he often incorporates into his sets.
In addition to his DJ career, Tolentechno is also a co-founder of The Shed Residents, a collective of DJs, Producers, and Creatives who share a similar passion for electronic music.
He’ll be joined by the explosive up-and-coming DJ, PAULINE. With a distinctive understanding of rhythm and flow, she is talented at creating sets that journey through multiple genres seamlessly. From the deep and bass-heavy to the bouncy and uplifting her versatile sound spans techno, bass, trance, and jungle, PAULINE is one to watch.
Also performing is IMO, a Mayo-bred, Galway-based, up-and-coming selector who has been creating waves in the Galway scene recently, already securing support slots for some of the biggest national and international acts. IMO has played multiple huge gigs including supporting BLK, Tommy Holohan and Clouds, and has been booked to support international hard hitters Charlie Sparks, Skin on Skin and Yung Singh.
Muttonhead is an alternative hip-hop producer and rapper hailing from Dublin. The Tallaght native is also a co-founder of eclectic record label Burner Records alongside Local Boy, XXXX in Stereo Fynch and ARBU. He’ll be on the decks alongside Jordo Byrne and TBD in the Workman’s Cellar.
‘A Very Workman’s Christmas‘ is coming to the Workman’s Main Room and Cellar this Friday 23 December. Doors open at 21:00, with tickets costing 10 euro.
Tickets for ‘A Very Workman’s Christmas’ are available here.
