She has played venues including Aquarium Club as a monthly resident, Lightbox, EGG, and in Rome, where she held a residency at Rashomon Club as well as appearing as a guest DJ at some of the best clubs in the city. Ireen is also one of the creators of, a new underground club night on London’s techno scene. It brings together the best emerging DJs of techno, acid, minimal and deep together with live instrumentalists. Definitely one to watch…

Ireen is currently working on the release of her first EP. Her song ‘True’ is set to appear on EGG Recordings’ first compilation release this year, and her track ‘Response’ will be featured in Capital XTRA FM presenter Coco Cole’s compilation, Say Yes: Volume 2.

Ireen was selected from over 2000 entries to play Space and won over the Premiere Etage crowd with her seamless mix of deep techy grooves.

Irene will receive Pioneer DJ equipment including 2 x CDJ-2000NXS & 1 x DJM-900NXS plus Irene will get to spend time at the Pioneer DJ studio in Hoxton to ensure she gets the best from her state of the art Pioneer DJ equipment.

Soul96 is the EI Wildcard runner up and will receive studio time in the EI London studio to produce his debut EP for release on EI Music.

Fresh on the scene Soul96 has already played many successful nights, including two of the busiest nightclubs in his hometown city of Sheffield. His sound and style covers the entire frequency spectrum of house, combining the dirty basslines of garage influenced house, to the tropical percussion heavy beats of tech. His ability to read a dance floor and understand the atmosphere is what makes him stand out from the crowd. Making use of todays digital equipment chopping, looping and remixing on the fly and in the moment, when it counts. His background and love for DJing has developed since as a young boy helping his dad at many of his gigs. From this great vantage point he picked up the essentials of mixing, playing the right track at the right moment and witnessed the beauty of entertaining a crowd through a musical journey. This is the point where it all took off for Soul96 and he’s never looked back…
