Premiere: Plus One ‘Sweaty’

Premiere: Plus One ‘Sweaty’

Dublin’s Plus One will release a new EP via Galway’s Ar Ais Arís label this month. Listen to ‘Sweaty’ below.

Hot on the heels of ‘Bonk’ – a sizzling stepper from Ar Ais Arís’ debut V/A that’s become a reliable fixture in sets by Ben UFO, Four Tet et al this summer – Plus One’s latest five-tracker touches on garage, cloud rap and galloping dembow, all delivered with the same giddy flair that’s made his music so irresistible to selectors and Shazammrs alike. 

From the snapping 2-step of ‘Bomber’ through the woozy cyborg vox and chiptune rumbles of ‘777’ to the sugar-rush club tekkers of ‘I Can Live’, there’s something of Two Shell’s post-rave antics at play here, but Plus One’s sights remain more firmly set on the dancefloor. ‘Sweaty’ taps into the limb-swinging techno-goes-dembow bizniz of Nick León and Doctor Jeep, while ‘Zero Chance’ reaches further into zapping reggaeton rhythms, laser beam bass and swirling vocal murmurs. 

‘Ar Ais Ar​í​s Vol 2’ lands on 12th July. Pre-order it here. 

Since launching in Galway’s Irish language venue, Club Áras na nGael, in late 2022, Ar Ais Arís – a popular phrase in Irish music meaning “Back Again” – has become a “welcoming space for counter-culture expression while prioritising inclusivity, diversity, and safety”. In the year and a half since, it has hosted sets from international artists including Sully, Breaka and Denham Audio as well as a wide array of Irish DJs including Woozy’s EMA, Efa O’Neill and R.Kitt.
