THERE ARE ONLY a handful of tipplers at the bar in the Odessa Club when I arrive. I’m two minutes late for my interview with Annie MacManus, but I hesitate nonetheless before deciding which table to approach. The Dubliner is an in-demand club DJ in the UK, where her show Annie Mac’s Mash Up recently replaced Pete Tong in the prestigious 7-9pm Friday slot on BBC Radio 1. Her Annie Mac Presents… tour, meanwhile, has become an important showcase for new talent. She plays Ibiza regularly and has toured the US.

But for all her international recognition, the 31-year-old still cuts something of an anonymous figure in her native city. She could be any well-dressed young professional stopping in for a drink after work on this wet Thursday evening. Read the rest of the interview here.
