    SATURDAY APRIL 23 @ BROWN ALLEY


    17 HOUR DAY/NIGHT PARTY – 2PM SATURDAY TO 7AM SUNDAY


    So that time of the year has come around again where we put our birthday party hats on and try and spoil ourselves and our loyal crew and punters. As many have already experienced with our previous birthday’s, it’s usually a no-holds-barred affair and this year is no exception. This time we are showcasing artists who have been an integral part of the international Darkbeat family over the past 8 years and providing them with extended journey sets to give them the license to cover all bases of their sound.

    This will be run throughout multiple rooms over a massive 17 hours, running from 2 PM to 7 AM with a larger focus on the DAY PARTY side of things. As always we will be taking care of every detail within the Brown Alley complex. From sound to production, we have not let you down yet, and as it’s our 8th birthday, we will be stepping it up big time.
    Drink Specials will be running all day and a FREE GOURMET BBQ to get you in the mood

    Desyn Masiello



    Desyn bought his first set of turntables in 1990 and spent most of his spare time in dusty second hand London record basements gradually amassing a wide and varied range of early house, balearic and techno. His compulsive record buying and finding nature remains the same today.

    His professional DJ career all began in 1999 with one mix CD that he took a considerable amount of time and love preparing, he sent it out to one hundred random people that requested the CD from a post on various Internet message boards. After a few months the CD had been passed all around the world and ended up on the laps of various promoters and DJs. Desyn, although completely unknown at the time began to get international gig requests. From his first international gigs in 2001 to his chaotic schedule today, it all sparked off from that one mix CD.

    CDs released:

    2002 - Yoshitoshi’s “In house we trust 3” (Desyn Masiello & Luke Fair)
    2004 - Bedrock OS1 -Desyn Masiello
    2005 - Balance 008 - Desyn Masiello (awarded no.1 album of 2005 by the UK dance magazine M8 / tilllate.com)
    2008 - Balance 013 - SOS
    2010 - Ministry of Sound - The Club - SOS

    Desyn Runs Alternative Route, Sexonwax (with Omid 16b) and Soulglow (with Rowan Blades). His productions with The Idiots 'Feel The Rush' and 'Keep it Real' (Sexonwax) were featured on Danny Howells' 24/7 Compilation and his first remix (Solar Plexus) on Deep Dish's Global Underground (025).

    Desyn has appeared in the DJ mag top 100 poll for 3 years consecutive years (2005, 2006, 2007)


    Satoshi Tomiie



    The last few years have been all about DJing for Satoshi. This Japanese New Yorker has been virtually everywhere you can think of in recent years, in March 05 Tomiie was also voted Americas ..15 favorite DJ in the world by the premier Electronic magazine BPM. He only spins in his home city (Tokyo) every six months or so; the rest of the time he's traveling, using the Big Apple as a second home which also serves as a handy midpoint between Asia, South America and Europe - where a lot of his gigs are.

    In 2006, Satoshi was chosen to mix the first album of Renaissance's new series 3D. The 3 CD series will include the following discs: Club, Home, and Studio. This is a step above any ordinary compilation as it will offer a 3-dimensional view into Satoshi's musical life spread across the three discs. The 'Club' disc will be a straight-up reflection of the sets he is currently playing in clubs. Disc 2 'Studio' disc will feature a selection of his original productions and remixes. Disc 3 will be 'Home', a selection of tracks; mixed or unmixed that Satoshi listens to in his downtime and tracks that has influenced him over the years.

    Following up with the releasing of successful 'Masters' series on Renaissance and releasing of his own singles 'Glow' in 2007 as well as 'Solar Wind' in 2008 on SAW.RECORDINGS, Satoshi is now preparing another album planned to be released late 2008 for Renaissance. The collaboration with Audiofly, Opus Ink's 2nd single is also in the pipeline.

    Although Satoshi is quiet and unassuming; he gets on with the job of playing and producing quality underground dance music.


    Anthony Pappa



    Described as “The DJs, DJ” Anthony Pappa truly is a master of his craft and one of the most respected and revered DJs on the international circuit. The combination of his genuine love for his art, his down to earth, lovable personality and his constant desire to push the musical boundaries at performances all around the world has made Anthony one of the most sought after DJs on the planet.

    The second album in the Moments Series was released in June 2009 to similar success, and although global album sales are generally in decline, it seems that Anthony's fans still want to buy his music and go to see him play as much as ever.2010 improved even further on previous years for Anthony by an even busier touring schedule including just over 100 performances in total at various clubs and festivals over the globe. 2010 was also the year Anthony was selected to mix the cover mount CD for DJ Mag’s coveted Top 100 DJ’s edition. The mix has received high praise from all the big hitters and industry professionals alike. Alongside DJing, Production was key to Anthony’s success last year with high profile releases including his massive collaboration with King Unique called “Vamoosh” which was on John Digweed’s Bedrock imprint.

    2011 is definitely going to be a year of change for Anthony with his move to We Are One Agency. His gig diary is full for the first quarter of the year, including an extended tour of his homeland, Australia. In March, he will host his own night at the Shelbourne for WMC. On top of this, Anthony plans to release the 3rd installment of the “Moments” series in the middle of the year.

    Andrew Grant




    Being part of the Circoloco family and resident DJ of DC10 Ibiza for the past 8 years, Andrew Grant has experienced many things. The time spent touring the world’s best clubs and playing alongside the world’s best DJ’s has helped him to gain a reputation for being one of the most solid and consistent performing DJ’s in the world of electronic music.

    Hailing from the Washington DC area in USA, Andrew’s DJ history dates back to 1988 when he was spinning hip-hop at house parties and school dances. But, his musical tastes soon turned to electronic after his first trip to NYC’s Twilo in the mid 90’s where shortly after, he found himself playing a broad scale of music. Andrew’s first visit to Europe was in 2000 playing in Dublin on New Years and then in Paris. He stayed in Europe and in 2001, purchased a one-way ticket from Sheffield, England (where he threw parties 10 weeks previous) to Ibiza. He travelled to Ibiza for a deeper look into the scene with a passion to play top venues. Upon being discovered, he was invited to play Thursday morning after-hours at DC10. After just two sets he was invited to play a main 3-5 hour slot on Monday’s after Cirillo, his mentor. So at just 25 years old, Andrew Grant was adopted by DC10, one of the most recognised and well respected parties in the world.

    Alongside touring the world with Circoloco and his DC10 Ibiza residency, Andrew has actively pursued his production career since 2001 with releases on labels such as Plastic City, Unfoundsound, Siteholder Records, Isgud Records, Minisketch and future releases forthcoming on Barraca Music with remixes of Ricardo Villalobos and Los Updates in the pipeline. As head of the Barraca Music record label, Andrew is responsible for all musical output from the label and is a figurehead in the labels current success.

By 1947 the hotel and its infamous diving board graced the cover of Life Magazine. The history of entertainment at the Shelborne spans back to the 50’s and 60’s and early 70’s when people like Dionne Warwick, Jackie Mason, Sammy Davis Junior, Liza Minnelli and many others were regular visitors to the Hotel and its club.
