Get Down Edits are Darren “Daz” Dalton & Martin Roche.

If you count up the years that Daz and Martin have been  playing individually and together then youve got nearly half a  century of Dj experience. Added to that the success of their  own partnership and label with the release of Get Down Edits  Vols 1-4 and youve got a seriously solid pair of DJ`s and edit  masters. 

Still living in their home city of Waterford in Southern  Ireland, the duo have recently been playing host to some of  their favourite Djs and producers at their new Monthly  residency in The Terrace @ Shortts Bar Waterford. Dicky  Trisco and LTJ Experience have played with Get Down Edits  in Irelands oldest city so far in 2013 with some very special  guests lined up for the summer months including Charles  Webster & The Revenge. 

Starting off from a House & Deep House background in mid  90s to early 00s, the boys shared the decks early on in their  mixing career with many national and international acts like  Kenny Dope (M.A.W), Dj Deep (Paris), Dj Harri (subclub),  Yousef, Ben Watt, Fish Go Deep, Charles Webster, Frank  Roger & Atjazz.A residency in Waterford club Shakedown in  2006 allowed them to explore their style and flair for mixing  music; they kept their house music mixing style while playing  80s funk, soul, disco and classic electronic music. Their own  Get Down residency started in 2008 and allowed the duo to further refine their signature sound to the deep and soulful  disco sound it is today. Get Down nights also first introduced  many International Producers and djs – Craig Smith, The  Revenge, Greg Wilson and Chez Damier to Waterford ears  and dance floors. Daz and Martin continue to stay very close  to fresh new sounds and talents in their efforts to share the  best sounds and parties in their home city. 

From the early days Daz and Martin made their own Dj sets  that bit more exclusive with the inclusion of their own  remixes and edits. And then sharing these edits with Djs they  respected got them some great feedback. When an email came  in from Greg Wilson saying he was getting a great response to  their edits, their own label was finally born. The first vinyl  press of Get Down Edits Vol 1 (released in June 2011) sold  out within weeks & the digital release remained in juno  downloads top ten selling releases for two months. Vol 2 was  released in November of the same year & included tracks  from Deep and Disco & 78 Edits alongside two of their own  Get Down Edits edits. Vol 3 got its release July 2012 and  included tracks from Late night tuff Guy and Rayko,  2013s recent Vol 4 went straight to the top of the charts on  juno with the vinyl being re-pressed with weeks of its release.  In May 2013 the digital release went very quickly to the top of  junos download charts.  

Get Down Edits tracks are very much out on dance floors nationally and internationally as supported, played and loved  by Greg Wilson, John Morales, Dicky Trisco, The Revenge,  Kev Beadle, Doc Martin, Pete Herbert, Jacques Renault,  Deadly Sins, Ltj Xperience, House Of Disco Records &  Rudy’s Midnight Machine just to name a few.The lads have  released music on other great labels of the disco world such as Disco Deviance ,Editors kutz, File under disco, Midnight  riot, Masterworks music, Paper disco, Hot digits, Wall of  fame, Queen and Disco. 

Daz and Martin have also received praise from the New York  Legend Kerri Chandler when he added their names to the  thanks list of both his NRK Coast 2 Coast & Southport  weekender mix cd`s as he was so impressed with their many  many warm up sets for him. 

Daz and Martin have progressed from playing local clubnights  around Waterford, to hitting the decks every weekend at  parties in Cork, Galway, Dublin and Belfast as well as many  festivals nationally (Indiependance, Body & Soul,  Gateways,Electric Picnic, Sea Sessions) and festivals overseas  such as a Electric Elephant Festival in Croatia,  Glastonbury,Liverpool Disco Festival and Brighton Pride  festival.
