Orlagh Dooley aka Or:la is fast becoming one of the most exciting DJs in the country. Her talent as both producer and selector - one with proper record collector chops - belies her young years, and is evident to anyone who's caught a set or heard her debut EP UK Lonely which came out on Hotflush last year. Orlagh also co-runs a party called Meine Nacht in Liverpool along with Breakwave, and now the pair are starting their own all-vinyl label - Deep Sea Frequency.
While Or:la's loose approach to genre will extend to the label, the records themselves will be tied together by a special braille concept encouraging inclusivity for the blind/partially sighted. With distribution from Lobster Distribution and releases on the way from Pépe and DJ Seinfeld, we're excited to see how everything pans out.
Anyway, we're getting ahead of ourselves - the first release on Deep Sea Frequency will be Kyoto Dance, a new two-track offering from Or:la herself. We're very happy to be premiering the title track, which has already been getting rinsed by the likes of Joy Orbison. This is pacing, threatening techno with a surprisingly funky rhythm, constantly shapeshifting and lulling you into its hypnotic clutches. One to keep the dancefloor enraptured.
Kyoto Dance is out in July on Deep Sea Frequency.
