New Confute Aperture EP + Two Hour Mix

Irish techno maven Gary Curran, aka Confute, has a new EP out! And to celebrate, he’s engaged us with an 2-hour DJ mix. Using 27 tracks in all, Curran (formerly of the Japanese Popstars), masterfully weaves in originals from his brand-new Aperture EP.


Confute comes showcasing his mastery of balancing dark against light on his second release, Aperture, for Four One Records.

Opening track “Aperture” is tense, teasing techno, pieced together perfectly to pound any soundsystem. Once the bass opens, you are undoubtedly hooked in for the ride.

The heartbeat like hypnotism of “Hummer” is almost an anxious affair, laced with twisting arpeggiators that wander effortlessly in and through the haunting atmospherics and whispers.

“Frugal” is filled with little layers of bells dancing along to the summer warmth. Simple and yet beautiful.

Closing off the EP is “Syzygy”, a dark pursuit into the unknown, creating a memorable spacious feel.

There is more than enough variation in the Aperture EP for everyone to enjoy.

Having previously released 3 Albums, with Gung Ho, EMI and Bedrock, and an ever increasing remix catalogue for artists such as Beyonce, Groove Armada, Pete Tong, Daft Punk, 30 Seconds To Mars, Depeche Mode, Gorillaz, Benny Benassi and Kylie Minogue and more, Gary has decided to bring his individual flare for writing electronic music to the forefront as Confute.

TBT: Confute Releases Make It New Live Recording


Producer Confute (IRL, Japanese Popstars) has had a busy few months. In addition to guesting on UK legend John Digweed‘s Transitions radio show, he also scored two tracks on the official Underground Sound of Ibiza compilation.

In honor of Make It New tonight, Confute’s given us exclusive access to his DJ mix from earlier this year.

April 30th saw him storm the booth at Middlesex Lounge for a two hour technoid domination. Get into this powerful mix below.

Looking to get out tonight? That’s what we do each and every week on Thursdays. We find it’s a bit easier to have a good time when the weekend crowd is at bay. Tonight we have two special guests from Germany. See you there!
