    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

    DAVID HOLMES - BACK & FORTH The Alternative To Sleep! Alt Rock, Metal, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Electro, plus the RTE 2fm studio sessions, & live music from across Europe.


    David Holmes has had one of the most unlikely careers thus far. From celebrated DJ to remixer and producer, to numerous Hollywood film scores. It would be fair to say that he's had to learn to juggle his numerous projects. Not that he's forgotten his roots; Holmes still makes time to create engaging music of his own. Dan will go Back & Forth over the music of Mr Holmes on The Alternative; from Gritty Shaker to Sugarman and far beyond.





    Krautrock is a term that’s often thrown around when Eat Lights Become Lights are mentioned. ELBL have always been heralded as a live force; but with ‘Modular Living’, certainly shows that they can create something special in studio too.

    'Sleep Of Reason' is an album in the true sense of the word. It's the debut album from Raffertie which is the performing name for Ben Stefanski. There are plenty of musical reference points that you may come up with, but 'Sleep Of Reason' holds itself up as a very individual piece of work.
