October Oldskool for Dublin, Ireland!

October Oldskool for Dublin, Ireland!

[dropcap]O[/dropcap]ctober in Dublin has many good nights, especially on the Oldskool front, but there are two nights coming up on the 6th and on the 13th worth a little mention! I have been to both nights previously, and cant recommend them enough. Great music and great crowds! Get on down to them folks!


Hooked on Class X – 6th October 2018 @ Club 39/40 Dublin, Ireland.

Ormond Multi-Media Retro Rewind. In Aid Of Suicide Awareness.

“I hope to see you all on October 6th and make this night special” – Jamie

DJ’s on the night:

Jay Carey | Dave Mc Donnell | Ed Case | Casper | Francois | Gary Quigley | Paul Da Kid Duffy

Having played for one of these nights before and a charitable cause of this nature is close to me, and my work as a therapist, I really wanted to have a quick chat with Jamie about the nights:



Back in 2005 Ken M, the Smiley Boys AKA DJ Skinny and Dillion C, with Myself, were playing in the Legal Eagle at a night called Back to Basics and we thought we should start our own nights. With that, we came up with Class X, as in classics. So, we started in the Cavern and then Radio City and then we had every month in Isac Butts and had the place on wheels!

I had the pleasure of playing with some of Dublin’s finest DJ’s, but nothing lasts forever, so we put Class X to bed. I started to run nights under the name Hooked.

Hooked on Class X were all about the Oldskool. We were not in it for the money, just for the good times. It was just an excuse to get out once a month but after a few years of running nights, I wanted to start giving back. Giving something that was very close to my heart as I had lost a lot of friends to suicide.

So, in 2010 I did my 1st Ormond Retro Rewind, with Mark Kav, Alan Pullen, Pierce Rooney & Ken Toben, in the vaults an that’s where it all started. After that I met a lovely woman by the name of Carola Sheridan, she also was a club promoter, so we started to run our own nights together an in 2013.  We did part 2 of the Ormond Muilty Media Retro Rewind and it was a sellout. 2 floors wall to wall, and raised over 12,000 Euro for this worthy cause.



Hopefully, some more nights like these, because when it comes to Charity nightsDublinn has always has dug deep and helped out above and beyond.



History Of House Presents Oldskool Heaven @ The Turks Head, Dublin, Ireland. 13th October 2018.

History of House Presents OldSkool Heaven

“History of house showcases some of the worlds finest house music from Acid House to the present” – Derek

Normally any nights will have one maybe two top-end guests for a night, but not History Of House Dublin!  Here we have four top players from the dance scene back to back with a host of local DJ’s too. This will be a fantastic night, might just send a couple of the guys from Zone down on the night to capture the shenanigans! 

I had a quick chat with Derek about History of House:



The first night I ever ran was in 2008 with my mate Baz. At the time there had not been an old skool gig in years. We ran a couple of very successfull nights then he moved off to Australia and I settled down with my partner and kids. I think I got back into DJ’ing around 2014, Anto Hill asked me to do a gig and since then I’ve done many gigs so I taught we would run our own. We have not looked back!


What does the future hold?  I’ve no idea mate! We will continue to do our thing! We have a next venture in March put in place, so we will take it gig by gig!


Artists on the night:

K-Klass | Joe T Vanelli | Pete ‘Shaker’ Bones | Al Gibbs

Jay Cisco | DJ Orbit | Hugo McCann | Frank Kearney | Derek Cully | Anthoney Murphy | Aidan Lenene
