Some may know John OCallaghan as a Dance music icon, some may know him by his initials JOC and then there are others who only know his music. Its obvious even to a newcomer or neophyte enthusiast that John OCallaghans talents far exceed that of just an uplifting producer or Trance remix master. He is an artist, producer, DJ and an internationally respected name in the world of Electronic music. John OCallaghan has long pushed the boundaries of musical genres in ways that have earned him a stellar reputation across the dance music industry. From the dreamy progressive vibes of the Deep Dream mixes to the edgy techno grooves of his Joint Operations Centre productions. John OCallaghan always showcases true diversity in his sound, and has emerged as a leader of the trance movement a path which all of his fans have loyally followed. With every production he once again proves himself to be one of the most consistent and yet surprising artists, with an uncompromising ability to reinvent and rework any track that catches his eye (and ears).
In the past few years he has encapsulated the true artistry of uplifting melodic trance music resulting in smash hit remixes on the crme de la crme of the finest Electronic music labels around such as: Armada, Black Hole, Vandit, Garuda and of course his heavy hitting originals on his very own revered Subculture record label. John OCallaghan has long been responsible for taking vocal records and transforming them into extraordinary Trance Classics. This was evident when his remix of Gareth Emerys Concrete Angel hit Number One in the download charts, and the original was voted tune of the year by millions of fans on Armin Van Buurens A State Of Trance radio show. Add to that JOCs timeless remix of the Doppler Effect, a remix which was highly acclaimed for its creativity.
As an artist that is responsible for creating some of the defining sounds and biggest vocal tracks of recent times, John OCallaghan has also retained unprecedented levels of credibility within the underground scene. With three studio albums and a discography littered with some of the most iconic Trance records of the recent era, such as: Big Sky, Find Yourself, One Special Particle; and Exactly continuing to ignite dance-floors worldwide. John OCallaghans rapid ascent into a Trance legacy shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon.
Its not only in the studio in which John OCallaghan has had a monumental impact. As a DJ his world renowned productions have had him travelling the world at a frantic pace. Over the last year he has found himself playing for the biggest festivals and brands in the world such as: Ultra Music Festival (Miami & Worldwide), Cream (Ibiza + Worldwide), A State Of Trance (Worldwide), Stereosonic (AUS), Godskitchen (UK) and many more. Add to that a BBC Radio 1 essential mix, multiple iconic mix compilations and regular sold out Subculture events & its plain to see that John OCallaghans sound is more in-demand today that it ever has been.
Personifying trance musics energy in both approach and output, Italys Giuseppe Ottaviani has long been recognized as one of the genres most respected and prolific merchants. From his earliest studio work (as the engine behind famed group NU NRG), through to his latter-day releases under his own name, he has established himself as a benchmark for eminent trance. Over the last 6 years his boundary-breaking in-concert experience Giuseppe Ottaviani Live! has put hundreds of thousands of hands in the air and feet on the floor at the worlds best-known EDM festivals. Exclusively feeding these performances is his vast litany of club hits and remixes, of which Ready, Angel, Linking People, Through Your Eyes and No More Alone are but a few. Giuseppes remains both contemporary and omnipresent in the scene with of-late productions like Falcons, Arcobaleno and most recently Lost For Words, Earth Beat and Love Will Bring It All Around continuing to win trance hearts and minds. 2013 saw Ottaviani release his 2nd artist album Magenta to critical acclaim as well as performing across the globe at some of the worlds biggest and best clubs and festivals.
From scene founding father to, of-late, initiator and flag-bearer for the Pure Trance movement, Solarstones enduring influence spans the near length of the genres history. Having championed the true nature of trance music from his very first release, the last 24 months have seen Solarstone drive its sound, almost singlehandedly, back up to the top of the genres agenda. Through his #PureTrance gospel – modernizing the genres heart, whilst maintaining its soul – he captured the mood of the scene with zeitgeist timing. Solarstones Pure Trance concept has subsequently spun off into a mix-comp series, Pure Trance shows worldwide (including electronic music capitals like Miami, Ibiza & Amsterdam) and most recently the Pure Trance Recordings label.
Solarstone has long brought his sound to some of the most famous clubs, arenas and festivals on the planet. Most recently those have included Global Gathering, Cream Ibiza, A State Of Trance and Tomorrowland in Europe, whilst further afield hes rocked TomorrowWorld, Stereosonic, FSOE & numerous others. With RainStarsEternal, Touchstone and most recently Pure, hes released a trilogy of critically acclaimed artist albums, whilst releases from Solarstones manifold label projects (Touchstone Recordings and Molecule among them) continue to provide the foundation blocks of his inimitable sets. Solaris International – his weekly radio show – enjoys a die-hard fan-base and is now broadcast across some 50 + FM & Internet stations. In October of 2013, off the back of the Pure Trance wave, Solarstone re-entered DJ Mags list of the planets Top 100 DJs.
