Ireland is known for many things: Guinness, shamrocks, and now – John O’Callaghan. Firmly established in the A-list trance elite, John O’Callaghan is set to continue his journey further up the ladder of electronic dance superstardom. John’s high- energy trance mix coupled with a highly refined precision mixing style has seen him surge up through the DJ ranks. Spinning his first Radio 1 Essential Mix in the summer of 2008, the gifted 28 year old was one of only 4 trance DJs to do so during the year.
Immediately following that he made his debut in DJ Magazine’s Top 100 DJs rundown, arriving at No.60. In the 2009 chart he became one of the year’s highest climbers, leaping 36 places into the world’s top 25 (at number 24) and cemented his place as Ireland’s foremost DJ and producer.
In his home country he has picked up the Best DJ awards at the Irish Dance Music Awards for 3 consecutive years; decisively conquered the notoriously competitive testing ground of Ibiza and was the first Irishman to play Trance Energy. John has achieved so much already but this is just the beginning of a trance legacy.s, Lange has repeatedly proven why he is considered one of the most accomplished and highly rated artists in the scene, receiving unreserved support from both fans, DJs and the likes of MTV, with praise coming from around the globe. Live Forever, Out of the Sky, Drifting Away, Follow Me, Happiness Happening and many more continue to be revered as some finest dance classics, while not afraid to experiment, tracks like Another You Another Me and Harmony Will Kick You In The Ass have been some of the defining moments in the evolution of trance.
You would think that Ørjan Nilsen would not need any further introduction; after all this ever-talented Norwegian has been around longer than many others in this industry. His continuous hard work and a flair for production have given us tracks like “La Guitarra”, “So Long Radio”, “Go Fast”, “Lovers Lane” and many many more.
The hype around Ørjan has been at an all-time high with industry heavyweights like Armin Van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Ferry Corsten, & Markus Schulz hammering his tracks like “Go Fast!” and “Mjuzik”. “Between The Rays” was featured on the prominent “A State Of Trance 2011” – infact Ørjan has been a frequent flyer in the “A State Of Trance” compilation series being featured almost every year since 2006. One of his biggest highlights in recent years was charting on the Dutch Top 40 – at spot number 7 – as well as hitting number one on the Dutch dance chart!
As a DJ Ørjan is known for his ability to get the crowd fired up, playing a variation of the more chunky and groovy trance music, with big influences from tech-house and techno. He has an incredible vibe and a flow that is sure to bring life to any dance floor, as already seen at Global Gathering in Poland, Moscow at Liberation Day, Amsterdam Dance Event, A State Of Trance 500, and Revolution.
2012 has already seen for him some high profile gigs in the diary and, armed with an arsenal of chunky, energetic beats, dates all around the world are now in the works. It’s now finally time for Ørjan Nilsen to show you what the fuzz is all about!
