‘Loose Fit is a UK based label and event brand, which focuses on marrying the uplifting synths of italo disco with the dark and driven energy of electro. Having established their last release with Jordan and Brassica as a favorite among a number of well respected publications it also reached number 2 in the indie dance charts on Beatport.’
We are now tracing our roots back to celebrate a country with such a rich history of synth production.
O’Flynn is a young producer and DJ from London who has been hailed by Boiler Room as “one of dance music’s most prosperous newcomers”.
One of the standout 12 inches of 2015 came in the form of O’Flynn’s debut release; ‘Tyrion’ quickly became a tool that Four Tet rarely left out of his sets, while the anthemic ‘Desmond’s Empire’ won support from Gilles Peterson and was used to soundtrack festivals throughout the summer.
His follow up ‘Oberyn / Spyglass’ featured more clattering percussion and upfront energy and garnered Radio 1 and Rinse airtime from James Blake and Hessle Audio respectively. Whilst ‘Glow Worm / Aloha Ice Jam’ was championed by the likes of Bonobo and named by Phonica as one of their “Best Singles of 2016”.
Maintaining the pace in 2017 with remixes for FaltyDL and Addison Groove, and his debut release on seminal dance label Ninja Tune, O’Flynn continues to develop as an exciting new name in the electronic dance music scene.
Jordan creates classic-feeling records that have seen him win acclaim from the likes of Thump, DJ Mag, XLR8R, Ransom Note and more. Having release on the hugely successful Defected Dj Haus compilation, Tiga’s ‘Turbo Recordings’ and being coined BBC radio 1 ‘one to watch’ he has demonstrated his productions are a force to be reckoned with.
Following his electric debut at AVA festivals Boiler Room stage, Jordan has been inundated with gig requests, playing to crowds of thousands at festivals regularly around ireland.
His reputation as a party-thrower began as a rebellion toward Belfast’s licensing laws, with after-hours sessions in venues from noodle bars and hairdressers to cafes and art galleries. Having progressed into legit clubs, Jordan can now be found alongside Timmy Stewart running The Night Institute, a party recognised as a leading light in Belfast and beyond. This year the TNI team has graced The Warehouse Project in Manchester, Red Bull stages, AVA Festival Boiler Room, Pygmalion and much more.
Support comes in the form of Loose Fit label boss Red Verse and local heros Romy Mats and XJB.
