Ian O’Donovan 2011 has seen Ian DJ across Europe with acts like John Digweed, Luke Slater and Psycatron. Having already released on many respected labels such as Bedrock, Wolfskuil, Eevonext, Natura Sonoris & Stripped and upcoming EPs on Vince Watson's Bio label & Master-H's Komplex De Deep imprint as well as remixes for The Japanese Popstars, Ian is quickly becoming a much sought after producer, remixer and DJ. His tracks are regularly played by many big name DJ’s including John Digweed, Laurent Garnier, Dave Clarke, Hernan Cattaneo & Pete Tong etc to rave reviews Ian O’Donovan hails originally from Limerick, Ireland. After spending many of his earlier years listening to various styles and genres, Ian came across the world of underground electronic music. He quickly began to immerse himself in this music and the scene itself. Ian began DJing playing house, techno and electro and although his palette has widened over the years, his DJ sets are still largely filled with these genres of music. It wasn’t until he moved to Australia in the mid 00’s that he began to create his own tracks, teaching himself production techniques and developing his sound. After returning to Ireland in 2009, he decided to focus more of his attention on making music seriously. He began sending out some new tracks and immediately caught the attention of Laurent Garnier, who’s constant support has gained him a big following. Described by Laurent Garnier as ‘one of the main players in the Detroit techno style” and “one of the best up and coming DJs”, it’s easy to see why Ian is gaining so much support. 2012 looks to be another big year for Ian with loads of releases and remixes as well as exciting collaborations.
