Conway’s Birthday Weekend kicked off on Friday with an absolute stormer from Alan Fitz in District 8.
After emerging as one of the new kids on the techno block, Alan Fitzpatrick quickly cemented his reputation and is now one of the most highly sought after producers, working with the likes of John Digweed, Joey Beltram, Pascal Mollin and Nick Muir. With well over 25 releases under his belt, Fitzy’s productions are a regular feature in the Beatport Top 100 and he has played in some of the biggest clubs around the world; Berghain, Cocoon, Inox, Awakenings, Fabric and, of course now, District 8.
When we arrived at District 8 around midnight, the place was absolutely in full flight. The support act, Rebekah, a techno DJ and Producer from Birmingham with a distinctly 90s vibe was whipping up a frenzy. I’m no good at guessing the size of crowds Ted, but I’d say there must have been a million people there.
Looking ahead, District 8 have managed to attract some more top quality DJs for the coming months. We will most definitely be back there soon.
In the meantime, here’s a video of the man himself winding down his set compliments of Oisin Doyle.
