Are you an analogue synth head? Then you will definitely want to check out the Moog Sound Lab currently set up and awaiting visitors at Dublin Science Gallery (head for the Trinity Pearse street entrance)!

Alongside that are a couple of dozen other sound and music-focused exhibits on display at the Science Gallery’s current “Sound Check” exhibition. Don’t expect to find the traditional audio tech here, it’s all about novel ideas and weird inventions. The Moog Sound Lab is probably the most mainstream of the offerings

Dizzee Rascal – Wot You Gonna Do? Dizzee is back with another single from his upcoming album ‘Raskit’. This is confirmation that the old Rascal we all knew and loved is back, no more radio-friendly collabs with popular DJ’s this is Dizzee at his best.

New Music Monday – 22nd May 2017

Francis and the Lights – May I Have This Dance (feat. Chance the Rapper) Nice disco-pop vibes from Francis and the Lights with a cameo from Chance the Rapper. Chance’s relaxed and laid back vocals create a cool chilled out Summer song with his input on May I Have This Dance.   Blink 182 – California (Deluxe) After only releasing California in the past year, Blink 182 have released a Deluxe edition which features 11 new songs and an acoustic version of “Bored To Death”. It shows that even without Tom DeLonge they can still write brilliant pop-punk songs.
