First Second Label head DC FSLMAN joins us for the 6th edition of the Phonica Friends & Family Mix Series.
Some of you may have seen Daire, aka DC FSLMAN, pottering around in our Soho store in recent months. Prior to that, you may have also seen him working behind the counter at Dublin’s legendary All City Records. This lovable Irishman is one of our newest team members (welcome, Daire!) and is also the main man behind the excellent First Second Label.
Stretching back as far as 2012, First Second Label has played host to a vast array of talent, such as Ellll, Minimal Violence, Sputnik One, Orlando, and G.E.O Corp to name a few. The label’s most recent release, Step Mode, comes from Dublin-based Glimmerman – be sure to check that out here. Daire is keeping his cards close to his chest for now, but we are told there are some tip-top releases on the horizon which we are already looking forward to checking out.
Daire’s mix is short but very, very sweet. It’s slow, always staying under the 100bpm mark, with all kinds of double-time, bass music, and sludge metal influences thrown in along the way. There’s a full tracklist below. Enjoy!
