Strictly Rhythm means two things to Limerick DJs and club-goers. Firstly, it is the iconic New York label that pioneered House music in New York in the 80s and 90s, breaking artists such as Louis Vega, Armand Van Helden, Josh Wink and Roger Sanzhez, and hauling club culture to centre stage in the city’s nightlife. Owning a Strictly Rhythm record was a holding-on point for Limerick DJs and musicians exploring a new culture, and their place within it.
Secondly, it became the name of the still notorious and best-regarded club-night to run in Limerick City, taking some of that New York spirit, running it through local sound systems to thousands of people over 10 years.
Aoife Nic Canna and Niall Colgan are steeped in the story of Limerick DJs and musicians. Their set will re-visit the lead records from both the label and the legendary club-night.
Audience for this club set will be limited to 120 and early booking is advised. Tickets are €10 in advance, or €12 on the door on the night.
