[ ReleaseNotes ]L
: :
Mirroring a musical region thats had a particular impact on him has
been the M.O. of Sneijders Afterdark album run since it embarked
back in 2018. Its Buenos Aires and Los Angeles compilations sent a
clear signal of intent, but 2020 - as we all know - has been
music-rich but travel-poor.

So, for its third, right-on-schedule outing, the DJ has taken the
chance to bring the Afterdark sound closer to home, and for Sneijder
that doesnt get much closer than Belfast. Both the city and Northern
Ireland as a country have a trance culture as ingrained as they come.
Industrial industriousness, its also comes with a very specific sound,
which for the release - has allowed Sneijder to fully reconnect with
his own tougher musical roots.

Greater Northern Irish resonance its hard to imagine, but that hasnt
stopped Sneijder finding a way. For the first time in the Afterdark
series, hes given a disc over to another DJ. With close to double
digit entries scored on the Afterdarks discography, Belfasts Billy
Gillies - one of the scenes brightest new hopes - knows exactly what
makes the label tick and his home-turf kick!

Between them they bring plenty of local produce to 003s tracklist,
with Shugz, Karney (Bryan Kearney), Mandy Reid, Niall McKeever, Deirdre
McLaughlin, Project 8 and others all contributing exclusives. Sneijder
and Billys own studiowares are every bit as well represented, and the
albums dual discs sport a mass more besides, with the likes of Alex Di
Stefano, David Forbes, Vlind and Ahmed Romel all contributing.

Of his decision to site the third in the series in Belfast, Sneijder
says: through iconic venues such as Kellys, Circus Circus, The Arena,
Kilwaughter House, Exit 15, the infamous Ulster and Kings Hall,
Planetlove and others, Northern Ireland is a country built on clubbing
culture. These are the clubs and brands that shaped my generation,
where weekly - I watched countless musical heroes of mine, all of
which helped influence my sound.

For this mix, Sneijder brings all his local knowledge to bear, opening
with his summer 2020 stomper Chuck Norris. The tech-cum-psy of
Shugzs La Bomba, the heavenly Dystopia from Ahmed Romel and the
percussive smack of Karneys Smiler all help triangulate the N.I.
sound. Sneijder marshals plenty of his own remix weaponry too, with his
revisions of Nick Callaghans Murky, the classic We Came from
Vimana and a new spin on Peter Steeles Karma all kissing the laser.
In its most ascendant latter stages, Sneijder rolls out some new collab
gear, including his David Forbes team-up Accelerate and setting the
scene for his Belfast compatriots disc the Billy Gillies
joint-venture Rhino.

Reins passed, new Belfast lad on the block Billy track-packs his mix
with an impressive, near-mini-albums worth of his own material.
Chemical, Expand and Shugzs rewax of Power bring tough n
tech-ish shades, which nitrously charge its opening 20. The midsection
sees big artistic drops from Vlind (with No Fate & Illusion Of
Choice) and Project 8 (Naughty & The Creator), before Billy gets
back on his own supply, delivering a final floor salvo of Dj vu,
Closed Eyes, Flight & See You Again.

The trance sound of Northern Ireland, distilled into 40 tracks and 160
minutes of the best type of musical madness, from two of the spinners
who know it best!
