A brief musical history of DJ Koze


Stefan Kozalla, aka DJ Koze (aka Adolf Noise, aka Swahimi, the Unenlightened) returns to Dublin to rock District 8 this Easter weekend. It’s been just 11 months since he last played Ireland (Life Festival) and a year since his last set in Dublin (a four hour triumph in the Button Factory) but this will be his first time since 2007 to play in the venue that was then called the Tivoli theatre.

‘This is going to be a good one’ is copy-pasted to every Facebook event with abandon but what is it about the countdown to Saturday that makes it feel that, this time, this platitude has never been more on point?

With is it about Koze?

Some excellent magazines have spilt ink trying to answer just that, so instead we decided we’d let the music speak. Here’s a timeline of some of the most iconic tracks from the illustrious career of the Unenlightened and a teaser of the goodies set to be spun on the night.
