Or:la is starting a new Céad sub-label this month, Damhsa.
Damsha – meaning “dance” in Irish – will launch on 2nd October with a four-track V/A EP, featuring tracks from Stratton, Body Beat Ritual, Jay Gadian and Carlton Doom. It’s a heavy-duty collection, with each track offering a hefty dose of EBM-infused techno.
UK producer Kincaid will release his new EP, All My Things Are Broken Because I am Broke’, on Or:la’s Céad imprint this month.
Set for release on 15th April, the buoyant techno two-tracker follows EPs from Blu Terra and Lewski on the Irish producer’s label, as well as a recent charity compilation for initiatives tackling climate change.

Paradise City is a festival that – despite feeling more like a commune or village – comfortably lives up to its name. The small but ambitious and environmentally conscious three-day event takes place on the idyllic grounds of Ribaucourt castle just outside Brussels and, thanks to its lush surrounding woodland and picturesque lake, serves as a mesmerising temporary escape from real life.
