KRISTIAN NAIRN is ready to take the electronic music world by storm with the release of his debut single entitled “Up / Beacon (feat. Leanne Robinson)” out now on Radikal Records.
Renowned locally and internationally in the field of Music and Performance, Nairn is a prolific homegrown talent. As a DJ and electronic music producer, Nairn has held down a residency for eleven years in Kremlin, one of Ireland’s most popular and enduring venues. Nairn’s remixes have been played in sets by some of the biggest house music legends, including the Freemasons and Grant Nelson. Most recently, Nairn embarked on an international tour aptly titled “Rave of Thrones”with dates in Europe, Canada and the United States.
The lead single “Up” has an upbeat tempo with a feel good vibe that offers beautiful synths, a piano melody combined with the dreamy vocals of Leanne Robinson. The B-side, “Beacon,” is a progressive-house track with a unique blend of heavy synths and electro elements; making the song a perfect addition for an after-hours DJ set.
Nairn is ecstatic for the release of “Up / Beacon,” and how it reflects his love for house music:
“It’s been a long time coming, and I think ‘Up’ and the material yet to come is a really good reflection of how I feel about house music. We have been very lucky to find Leanne, and its been great working with her. I’ve never been more excited to share ‘Up’ and what else I’ve been doing in the studio with the world over the next months.”
Kristian Nairn will be performing the “Rave of Thrones” at NYC’s Irving Plaza (17 Irving Place, NYC) on Thursday, August 13th where guests are asked to wear fantasy-themed fancy dress, with those who ignore the dictum risking the wrath of “the Hand of the king”. The show is 18+ and tickets can be purchased from LiveNation here: http://concerts.livenation.com/event/00004E74A4354C99. Doors are at 8:00pm.
