Kristian Nairn Follows Up His Hit Debut Single, “Up (feat. Leanne Robinson)” by Releasing B-side, “Beacon” on SoundCloud

Renowned locally and internationally in the field of music and performance, Kristian Nairn is a prolific homegrown talent. Widely recognized for his portrayal of the lovable, Hodor on HBOs hit series Game of Thrones, Nairn has been DJing and producing for over a decade, holding down a residency for eleven years at Kremlin, one of Irelands most popular and enduring venues.

Nairn is now taking the electronic music world by storm with the recent release of his debut single, ‘Up / Beacon’ available now on Radikal Records. The lead single, Up features the dreamy vocals of Leanne Robinson, and after a first week of coverage from publications like Ministry of Sound, Thump/Vice and The Verge, Up is about to hit 100,000 plays on SoundCloud.

Today, Nairn has released the single’s B-side,Beacon, a progressive-house track with a unique blend of heavy synths and electro elements. The track trades the vocals and piano driven melodies of Up for a darker, more atmospheric sound; making it a perfect addition for his after-hours DJ sets. Listen to “Beacon” on Nairn’s official SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/kristiannairn/beacon

“It’s been a long time coming, and I think ‘Up / Beacon’ and the material yet to come is a really good reflection of how I feel about house music. We have been very lucky to find Leanne, and its been great working with her. Ive never been more excited to share ‘Up / Beacon’ and what else Ive been doing in the studio with the world over the next months.” – Kristian Nairn

Nairn has been on an international tour, aptly titled Rave of Thrones with shows across Europe, Australia and the United States. Click Here to purchase tickets for when Nairn’s “Rave of Thrones” stops at Irving Plaza in NYC on Thursday, August 13th.
