The Kerry native DJ / Producer / Promoter Jonno O’Brien has quickly carved out his own niche among Irish dance artists, blending often dark and always funky elements into a tough new forward thinking and genre-busting sound that has been dubbed house, tech-house and funky techno.

He started DJing back in 1994 playing house and techno and perfected his trade until he ended up playing in the biggest UK Super clubs in the ensuing years, Ministry of Sound, Godskitchen, Planetlove, and Trade.

He has held down a long running residency at Horan’s club and fusion nights in Ireland, and supported A –Lister DJs such as Dave Clark, UMEK, SLAM, Ben Sims, Christian Smith, Yousef, and Trevor Rockcliffe.

In 2009, the Irish Daily Star newspaper hailed ‘O’Brien’ as “the most exciting new Irish producer of the year.”
