Maeve Label Party: Phil Kieran Life Cycling Album Launch - Ulster Sports Club - Belfast

Berlin-based Maeve record label comes to Belfast on Saturday 9th November to celebrate to the launch of Phil Kieran's new album "Life Cycling."Kieran has been one of Ireland’s best producers for almost two decades, and when he spoke with Maeve about an album he’d been working on, he sounded a note of caution that, maybe, well, it wasn’t the sort of thing Maeve would like. If this was a shameless attempt at reverse psychology, it worked. Interest was piqued, the conversation continued, and the result was an enchanting, hypnotic album unlike anything heard from Phil, or anyone, before. That album was Life Cycling and it was quickly agreed that this would be the perfect record to serve as Maeve’s first full-length artist release.In a world where everything is speeding up, Life Cycling slows things down, a painterly mosaic of the artist’s life, a vehicle into which he has placed his own experiences. Drawing in references as broad as Kraftwerk, Popol Vuh, even Bach, It’s a paean to the organic and human, drawn through the hum and whirl of machines and it taps a greater personal resonance for Kieran himself.Phil will be performing a live set at Ulster Sports Club with label cohorts The Drifter & Lil' Dave joining the party. Tickets on sale Thursday 17th October
