Walsh & McAuley
£10/£12 Pay at Door : 9pm – 2am
Without doubt the hottest new trance DJ / producer to emerge from Holland in recent years is Richard Durand. Recommended by the mighty Tiësto as his ‘Tip For The Top in 2007’ in DJ Magazine, Richard responded with a string of stunning productions and show stopping festival performances that have cemented his place as a fans favourite worldwide and a permanent fixture in the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll.
The Richard Durand sound is trance, techno and tough electro in a unique package that’s both dynamic and devastating. He has an ability to work crowds into a frenzy through his DJ sets, utilising 4 x CDJs, effects units and taking listeners on a whirlwind journey of cutting edge tunes, exclusive reworks, slick mixing and technical wizardry behind the decks – a combination that has made him must see material and a star performer at A-list events; headlining global festival brands such as A State Of Trance, Global Gathering, Sensation, Trance Energy, Mayday, Insomniac, plus leading club brands around the world.
When Black Hole Recordings announced at the start of 2010 that there would be a new figurehead of their legendary In Search Of Sunrise (ISOS) series of CDs previously fronted by Tiësto, there proved to be just one obvious successor to the throne – Richard Durand. ‘In Search Of Sunrise 8 – South Africa’ was released in May 2010 to huge acclaim from the music press and dance fans alike, with ‘ISOS 9 – India’ following in 2011 and the landmark 10th edition ‘ISOS 10 – Australia’ released in May 2012.
Walsh & McAuley
Marc Walsh and Ciaran McAuley are the latest DJing duo to come from Northern Ireland, early in 2006 the guys first met when both were competing in a competition for the chance to play at Judgement Sunday in Ibiza. Although unsuccessful it seems faith had a part to play as the duo has gone from strength to strength producing tracks under the alias ‘Walsh & McAuley’. It was not long before their talent was noticed by internationally recognised dance label ‘Bittersweet’ an imprint of the massive record label ‘Armada’. With most of their tracks signed to ‘Bittersweet’ Walsh & McAuley productions are available to download via all top online stores including iTunes, Beatport and Audiojelly.
Ibiza season summer 2007 Ciaran secured himself two residences on the white isle in both Kanya Sunset Bar and Play2 in the main strip of the West End. During this time Marc continually worked on productions for the duo, sending them out to Ciaran to be tried and tested on clubbers in the dance capital of the world.
Although as individuals the two draw influences from different DJs and producers they as a team have found a sound that is unique to them and has been stamped on each of their productions. It is still just the beginning for Walsh & McAuley and the future shows potential with their productions already receiving airplay and support from some of the top international DJs such as DJ Tiesto, Agnelli & Nelson, Stoneface & Terminal, Matt Darey, and Re:locate to name a few.
Early in 2009 the guys have their first radio show guest mix when they will appear on Solaris International for Agnelli & Nelson.
