Entrepreneur goes Dutch as he keeps his eye on the big picture


A Northern Ireland entrepreneur who makes visuals for stage performances is off to the Netherlands to showcase his work in front of 500 electronic music artists.

Graham Robinson of iloveqc has been invited to showcase his products at the Amsterdam Dance Event in October.

The biggest club-based event in the world, it features 500 electronic music artists performing at 450 gigs based at 100 locations throughout the city over five days.

Iloveqc creates digital files that allow DJs, performers, music producers and television editors to create in-time and on-beat visuals at events like the opening of Ebrington Barracks in Londonderry.

Although the business was launched only last September, Graham now has five young people working from his Belfast studio, and has attracted angel investment through Halo NI.

A new survey shows that with 3% of the UK population, Halo did 6% of the UK angel deals last year.

The firm is currently working with music producer Boys Noize and DJ Spooky.
