A three turntable wizard with a flair for the unexpected, Ireland’s tough techno peddler, DJ, producer and owner of Gobsmacked Records, Diarmaid O Meara, is a name that has quite rightly been etched into the minds of a sizeable and ever growing chunk of Europe’s even more sizeable and ever growing techno cult. After an intensive and highly successful number of years with acclaimed releases and a massive, hectic gigging schedule alongside his uniquely intense, energetic and entertaining style of three turntable techno mash-up sets, Diarmaid has proven himself to be up there with his peers and one of the best in his field to emerge in recent times. Since his first vinyl release in 2006, Diarmaid’s style has been grabbing more and more attention with releases across several labels, regular track support from Dave Clarke, DJ Rush, CJ Bolland and countless other giants of techno, almost constant airplay across UK and European radio stations, while also guest mixing and broadcasting exclusive sessions, and bringing his intense style to many clubs and radios across the UK and Europe. Live European dates have included, amongst many more, numerous clubs in Germany, Holland, Belgium and a host of other European cities. As one of the UK and Ireland’s busiest techno producers and releasers, his collaborations and remixes to date include Robert Armani, the Space DJz, Patrick DSP, andOgi, and his recently released album ‘Structured Noise’ was nominated for ‘Best Album’ and his label Gobsmacked for ‘Best Label’ in the Irish Dance Music awards 2010. With a broad spectrum of projects constantly on the horizon, he also has numerous upcoming releases across some of the genre’s finest labels, not to mention his own Gobsmacked label, which has just celebrated a colossal fiftieth release.
