Kaycee points to the old school way of things being a big influence in her style of a DJ, showing that time after time in her diverse sets!


NAVIGATING CONTROVERSY 

As Illicit's profile steadily ascended, collaborations with some of Dublin's best venues provided the opportunity to host renowned acts like Late Nite Tuff Guy, Chase & Status, Sidney Charles, Sr. Dubplate, Denham Audio & Kolter, among others.
 

The journey extended beyond Ireland, with invitations to notable events such as their inaugural birthday party at the prestigious Ministry of Sound, engagements with Haze Records in Sunderland, and appearances at Parklife for some of their residents.
 

A steadfast core team of residents, some of whom embarked on this journey in October 2015, forms the backbone of Illicit. The brand feels fortunate to collaborate with Dublin's finest talents, creating a genuine family atmosphere at their events.
 

Illicit's mission is to perpetuate this remarkable journey, building on past successes, and expanding into new territories. The brand envisions further growth, with plans to develop its agency and label, solidifying its position as a key player in the ever-evolving music landscape.
