• Stream: OneKnown – VΛV

    Having been busy releasing straight-up house and techno material under his own name, Belfast producer and DJ Chris Hanna has released ‘VΛV’, a stellar, decidedly more downtempo new track under his alias OneKnown, a music-making moniker adapted from his once cryptic Unknown/UNKNWN titles. Speaking of the new song – hands down one of the producers strongest tracks to date – Hanna said, “I hadn’t made one of these sorta tracks in just over 2 years and out of nowhere just got a total itch to make more of it, felt slightly strange! As usual, made in bed on my laptop haha. Recorded…

  • Stream: Chris Hanna – Bullied

    “There’s things I haven’t told you. I go out late at night. And if I was to tell you. You see my different side.” In your late twenties? There’s a good chance you’ll recognise those lyrics from Audio Bullys‘ 2003 single ‘We Don’t Care’. Even if you don’t, have a listen to this and there’s a good chance memories of you feeling vaguely hardly listening to this track in your late teens will come flooding back, along with the smell of Cool Water aftershave, dax wax and Lynx Africa. Good, good-smelling times. The latest in a series of remixes, Belfast-based producer and DJ…

    The latest in a spate of new material, Belfast electronic producer Chris Hanna AKA OneKnown has unveiled a new track, ‘Jektify’. Speaking of a forthcoming EP, titled Blue Galaxy, Hanna said, “I might just release it on Bandcamp as a Pay What You Want thing. I wanted the EP to be a bit spacey and weirder.

    With the recent announcement that his previous outfit UNKNWN are no more, Belfast-based electronic producer Chris Hanna has wasted no time in getting back on his feet. Released under his new moniker, OneKnown, ‘JST BKZ’ is sweet cut of skittering, arpeggiated instrumentalism, conjuring the shadowy electro doom of Lorn.

JST BKZ. Sorry.
