MIXTAPE PRESENTS JAPANESE POPSTARS WITH GILES WALKER // FRIDAY 28TH AUGUST// SNAFU

n118695386982_7924.jpg

Widely hailed as the act of the moment, the Japanese Popstars have been making waves on the scene. Their raw energy and excellent songcrafting has ensured that these Northern Irish (Not Japanese, lamentably) chaps are riding high. They boys are performing live at Wizard Festival during the day, but through sheer persistence we have managed to persuade them to come along to the club after and let all you lovely folk who cant make it out to Wizard see what all the fuss is about.

Heres what their myspace has to say, lest you require any further convincing:

The Japanese Popstars are an electronic act from Derry, Northern Ireland, consisting of Declan McLaughlin aka Decky Hedrock, Gary Curran, and Gareth Donoghue. They are signed to bespoke indie label, Gung-Ho Recordings (Gus Gus, Zoo Brazil) in the UK, and Beatink in Japan (home of Underworld, Aphex Twin, and Cinematic Orchestra).

Founded after a number of drunken discussions and attendance of a number of large music festivals, such as Oxegen and Glastonbury, the three musicians collaborated. Each member has his own alias. The act was nominated for "Best House DJs" at the 2006 World Urban Music Awards, "Best Live Performance" at the 2007 Northern Ireland Music Awards and won "Best Live Act" at the 2008 Irish Music Awards. They were also recently voted "Best Breakthrough Producers" at the DJ Mag Best Of British Awards 2008[citation needed], awarded "No.1 Dance Album" by Hotpress magazine, and won "Best Live Act" and "Best Album" at the 2009 Irish Music Awards.
