Belfast's Phil Kieran celebrates his new Hotflush release

Belfast producer and DJ Phil Kieran's ever-shifting sonic palette took another twist recently with the release of 'Going There' (and b-side 'Getting Away') on Scuba's Hotflush imprint. Part old school electro, part new school vocal deep house, it's every inch a summer anthem-in-waiting – backed with remixes from Richy Ahmed and Ryan Elliott for good measure.

But then Kieran's restless output has thrown up a variety of moments of marvel over his history, stretching back to the late '90s. Whether re-editing no wave punkers Bush Tetras or working with Green Velvet, his studio output combines the best of vintage, analog warmth with a progressive, forward-thinking mindset - which is why he's been in good company on labels such as Turbo, Soma and Cocoon.

We don't have a tracklist for his DJ Weekly mix yet but suffice to say it's filled with raw, stripped-back jackers which revolve around the joyous piano of 'Going There' at the midway point.
