If you cast an eye over 2018’s biggest dance tracks, not many will loom larger than ‘Along Came Polly’. Sitting at number one of the Beatport charts for weeks, this tech house monster announced the arrival of a new Irish talent and took control of dance floors from Ibiza to New York. Rebūke may be based in Ireland but his sound is catching on worldwide.
A project that was only inaugurated at the start of 2018 to capture the sound of his club has already seen him release EP’s and singles on Saved, Defected DFTD, Toolroom and the high charting Mother Recordings. He is also on a mission to right the wrongs off so many stale tech house tracks permeating the scene, a mission statement that is reinforced with his production moniker Rebuke: ’Well its a play on words on my real name which I really liked’ says the man himself. ‘But it also means ‘to intend to correct a fault’ which appealed to me too because I was getting bored with all the same old tech house I was hearing. I thought It was time to do something about that.’ he laughs.
Most recently his Rebūke/rave series has been causing a major stir with reimagined versions of rave era classics such as ‘Bombscare’ and ‘The Tape’ gaining glowing reviews from A list DJs.
All of this considered, there is no better time for Rebūke to head to Australia for his debut tour.
