Alt8 born Evan Marshall is a DJ/Producer from the south east of Ireland who perpetuates his craft via his own interpretation on some of the harder shades of Techno. Respected for his indelible high energy DJ sets, Alt8 can set the tone in any musical scenario with his broad knowledge of electronic music and diverse taste in different styles. You can expect two sides to Alt8’s DJ sets with an ecstatic blend of dark & gritty Techno clashing with euphoric synths & pads for that special moment. Fast paced Industrial drums with lots of rave influences from the 90’s and early 2000’s also sets the tone. Leading into 2021 Alt8 has begun to form a distinct sound from mixing hard Techno drums with soaring melodies and trance like synths. Modern musical influences come from artists such as Klangkuenstler, Shlomo, Hadone, Rebekah & Alignment to name a few.
