It took John O'Callaghan just a few short years to outrun the 'next big thing' tag and switch over onto the A-list fast track.
A masterful spinner, his high-octane trance mix coupled with a much-honed precision mixing style has seen him surge up through the DJ ranks.
Spinning his first Radio 1 Essential Mix in the summer of 2008, the gifted 27 year old was one of only 4 trance DJs to do so during the year. Immediately following that he made his debut in DJ Magazine's Top 100 DJs rundown, arriving at No.60. In the 2009 chart he became one of the year's highest climbers, leaping 36 places into the world's top 25
In 2010 he has entered the inner circle of electronic dance stardom.
John caught his first DJing break playing on national Irish radio station 2FM's 'Sessions Tour'. From the DJ booth he has gone on to throw trance-fire onto the floors of some of the world's highest-profile clubs, arenas and festivals. Counted amongst those are Planet Love & Lush in his native Ireland as well as Global Gathering, WMC Miami, Rain in Las Vegas and Creamfields.
He is also a regular fixture in Ibiza having played 4 sell-out gigs at Cream at Amnesia throughout the course of summer 2009, as well as his yearly trip to Eden for Judgement Sundays.
O'Callaghan has also expanded his fan-bases into Eastern Europe and North & South America (playing Sunrise Festival, San Francisco's LovEvolution, LA's Monster Massive, and his Brazil/Paraguay/Argentina tour inside the last year). These are all territories that he credits as being amongst the deciding factors in his DJ Top 100 chart showings. In Utrecht in March of 2009 John played the main-stage at Trance Energy.. now universally regarded as the pinnacle apex of the trance calendar.
