In January of 2012 the legendary dance music magazine Mixmag christened Dibby Dougherty as someone to ‘Keep An Eye On’ and its not difficult to see why.
The previous 12 months have been exceptional for youthful Irishman Dibby Dougherty, together with his new studio companion David Young, their tracks have featured on honoured record labels such as Bedrock, Renaissance, Parquet, Natura Sonoris and Alola Records.
Continuing his bi-weekly residency at the notorious club night Yello in Belfast (*34 DJ Mag Top 100 Clubs 2011) and also consistently playing further afield, he is frequently seen pleasing crowds at clubs in Dubai, Hong Kong, New York, Mumbai, Mexico, Russia, Dublin, Switzerland, London, Germany, Ukraine and the list goes on.
Defining his production style as “Energetic and twisted, but alive with emotion” – his distinct creations have seen consistent support from the likes of John Digweed, Richie Hawtin, Laurent Garnier, Max Cooper, James Zabiela, Dubfire,, Sasha and numerous others.
Spring 2012 has seen the launch of the DhARMA label, a home for Dibby’s love of the more eclectic side of electronic music. Everything from orchestral and weird, to charming folk-tronica and synthesised pop.
