The Liberties restaurant, fronted by bossman brothers Keelen and Aaron not only cook a mean meal but curated a gallery level art collection. Shucking oysters while being surrounded by wall to wall Robyn Carey aint a bad combo
We link up prolific activist, artist & DJ, Jordan Hearns for the third instalment of Abode Radio. Jordan, who is a mainstay for Irish culture, plays in some of the best clubs in Ireland and has a regular slot on DDR. With work featured on I-D, Sabukaru and District to name a few, is there anything this guy can’t do?
JM: So Jordan, talk us through the vibe of the tracks you selected.
JH: I love an emotive track – something lush, sultry, sweet, tender and groovy all in one. A genre defiant list, this playlist has tracks for all of the above. With everything from Elton John to Armand Van Helden (and a ton of golden era Boogie/Disco mixed in), thank me later for putting ye on!
JM: Still waiting for indoor nightlife to return. I’m sure you have visualised your first night back on the dancefloor; Whats the venue and what are we wearing?
JH: Oh god, tough question! First night back, and every other night for that matter, I’m front left, dancing for Ireland. I want maximum comfort for maximum movement. Venue wise, the obvious answer is Jigsaw, though that’s not possible now..
But regardless of the club, the first night back fit is simple – my now-signature Nike Waffle Trainer 2s, navy baggies, white tank, an over shirt, like a work shirt or something, and my assorted jewellery. Halfway through I can ditch the shirt and have no restrictions. Gotta give the boys something to look at!
JM: Your photography work documents club culture and its importance. What’s projects have you lined up when dance floors are full again.
JH: Can’t say much currently but more will be revealed late October…!
JM: And finally, what’s the first and last track you have lined up for your first gig back?
JH: If I step foot into a club post Covid and hear anything but straight up belters, there’ll be war. I’m keeping it bumpy and bouncy, ensuring maximum NRG.
First track is X-Coast – Track 2 Last track is Josh Wink – Higher State of Consciousness (Dex & Jonesey’s Higher Stated Mix)
Hard hitters front to back!

We linked up with Dublin based photographer, Yeewen Wong to shoot our latest drop of summer gear. With no location or plan, we let the clothes be the focal point of the shoot with some seriously good fabrics on show.
