Geisha pres Phil Kieran (Fri 16/09)

Geisha presents an evening with legendary Belfast techno producer Phil Kieran. Having been in the upper echelons of the electronic music game for more than a decade, Phil has emerged as one of the most exciting producers on the UK scene.

Phil Kieran will release his fourth album, Blinded By The Sun, via Jamie Jones and Lee Foss’s label Hot Creations on 7 October 2016.

Over the course of his 17-year career, the Belfast-born DJ/producer has put out records on labels like Soma, Cocoon and Hotflush, though this will be his first on Jamie Jones and Lee Foss’s house outlet. The LP’s sun theme is a metaphor for Kieran’s experiences within electronic music – “in an industry with all of its supposed glamour and beauty, it is the same industry that burns so many,” reads the press release. No samples were used on the album, with Kieran instead incorporating musicians and original sounds into the composition.
