Irish and techno are not normally found sitting snugly side by side in a loving embrace. However it has not stopped Irishman Diarmaid O Meara from trying.
“Paranoid” is a standard techno fare with pulsating drum loops and sirens. However underneath the noise is quite a decent dance song which will get most places jumping. “Blue” is the better of the two on offer with its retro keyboards and sound effect loops. Again underneath there is a good dance beat which will get people moving.
It may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but fans of the techno scene will embrace it with welcoming arms.
