Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

    Dan Hegarty - The Alternative

    ANALOGUE WAVE IN THE RTE 2FM SESSION The Alternative To Sleep! Alt Rock, Metal, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Electro, plus the RTE 2fm studio sessions, & live music from across Europe.


    Dublin duo Analogue Wave bring their magic bag of noise to RTE's Studio 8 for a session for Dan this week. Their album 'N.L.G. W.V' mixes all sorts of sounds to create something quite hypnotic; Dub Electro might just work as a loose description. The duo (Andy & Del) call in influences "Everything from Blues to Techno." What they come up with manages to stay outside any particular trend.
