ReTech are delighted to welcome the Waterford debut of COSMIN TRG, alongside our their resident Alan Harris on Saturday April 21st. Tickets 10/12 euro and available from EventBrite.

A singular voice, an idiosyncratic approach of Techno and a firm command of the dancefloor have turned Cosmin TRG into one of dance music's ubiquitous figures. Throughout a career spanning almost a decade, Berlin-based Romanian producer and DJ Cosmin Nicolae has released music with Hessle Audio, Hemlock, Running Back, Rush Hour, 50Weapons, buidling a diverse and iconoclastic catalog in the process.

Taking cues from 90s era leftfield electronics, warehouse techno, the pioneers of early lab recordings and minimal film scores, Cosmin TRG has created his own brand of modern, textural sonics in a contemporary context. His flair for abstract, low-end drum section methodology and a natural propensity for sculpting arresting soundscapes out of contrasting

Underworld - Rise Of The Lycans

If you've ever watched one of the Underworld movies, and God knows there are a lot to choose from, then you'll know that the whole premise of the films is about the war between vampires and werewolves and how great Kate Beckinsale looks in skin tight rubber. Kate Beckinsale isn't really in this movie which is a bit of a surprise considering that she is the main character in all of the Underworld franchise but the film still is about the war between vampires and werewolves. In this particular case the vampires have the upper hand and have a lot of werewolves working as slaves for them. They also provide protection for humans who have to deal with werewolf incursions on their land. These werewolves are feral and never revert to their human part and

When you read a book that is part of a series usually they can also be read as a standalone. Not so this novel. The story of Henning Juul and his quest for justice for his young son Jonas who was killed in a fire stretches back to 2006 and has unfolded over several books.

Some of them have been standalones but this, the finale to the series certainly isn't and you do sort of need to know more than a bit of the back story to understand what is going on. For a start the book begins at the end with Henning being shoved over the side of a boat into a lake with a breeze block tied around his ankles.

It looks as if he is going to his certain doom but you only find this out, plus a lot

    As dry as the SaharaIt seems that whenever the weather in Ireland goes a little bit extreme, we are somehow incapable of dealing with it. It has already happened so far this year with the snow that totally disrupted the country for about a week and also later on when some areas in the country were flooded due to excess rain. Now it is happening again because we are having to deal with a level of sunshine that is virtually unheard of in the country. And a level of sunshine that is going on for a good numbe …
