This Ain’t No Disco is the brainchild of legendary DJ Donal Dineen and one of Ireland’s premier directors Myles O’Reilly.
This Ain’t No Disco invokes the DIY spirit of classic RTE music television programme No Disco, which Dineen formerly presented, while also establishing a distinct, individual presence and aesthetic of its own.
Episode One, features music from amongst others Sunken Foal, Katie Kim, Patrick Kelleher, twinned with live visuals and frank discourse conducted by Dineen.
The results are multifaceted, moving from intense atmospheric silhouettes to warm homely visuals with ease. This Ain’t No disco is the flaming antithesis of modern music programming in Ireland; passionate, risky, on the fly and of the now. It’s exactly what the Irish music scene has been crying out for, but broadcasters have been too afraid to try.
And the proof, as they say “is in the pudding” for, This Ain’t No Disco has already been viewed over 150,000 times since Christmas Eve.
