No Place Like Drone call themselves “a collective of Ireland’s most jaded DJs, promoters and producers” who, after many years of clubbing and promotion, “have come to the realisation that there is No Place Like Drone.”
NPLD member Droid, previously a key mover behind dancehall blog We Are IE, says “This set is a product of process, of method. It features a cross section of mainly contemporary ambient, drone and experimental artists, most of whom will be familiar to Wire readers. The tunes have been layered, juxtaposed, stretched and manipulated in a live performance – partially rehearsed, partially improvised. Its also the product of grimy basement studio investigations, pirate radio explorations, pristine gallery gigs and many years of honing ears and blunting needles.”
