Local heroes Bicep return to Shine this Boxing Day, bringing with them their acclaimed Feel My Bicep party for what is regarded as the biggest night of the year in Belfast.
Belfast born duo Matt McBriar & Andy Ferguson are the founders of Feel My Bicep, the famous cult-defining music repository, championing electronic sounds varying from techno and house, to italo and leftfield electronica. Through this portal, they've made a name as some of the UK's most important electronic artists and tastemakers. Their branded Feel My Bicep events curate the best in techno and house music, and have become synonymous with solid, credible musical lineups, gathering momentum across the UK and beyond following annual sold out events at The Warehouse Project in Manchester, and ADE in Amsterdam.
Following on from their debut Belfast event at Shine in 2014 (with Jeff Mills amongst the stellar guests invited) this year they host another all star cast. Fabric London resident Craig Richards joins Bicep plus residents Swoose & Cromby in the main room, while Berghain/Panorama Bar mainstay nd_baumecker headlines room 2 with FMB residents Brassica and Hammer. Upstairs, Scottish Techno titans Clouds are supported by Phil Kieran and last but not least, room 4 proceedings are taken care of by Schmutz and Holly Lester.
Shortly after launching in 1995, Shine quickly became a staple for clubbers in Northern Ireland - and within just a few months was bringing some of the biggest DJs in the world to the capital city, often for the first time. Dave Clarke, Carl Cox, Richie Hawtin and 2manyDJs would become regular visitors, whilst everyone from DJ Shadow to Aphex Twin helped ensure things were always interesting.
