As a standalone Producer/DJ and formerly as one half of renowned trance duo Walsh & McAuley, Ciaran (pronounced Kier-ran) McAuley has been responsible for some of the most scene-seizing music to arrive in the recent times and this talented Irishman is leading the charge of nu-breed talent breaking out into the mainstream
The past twelve months have seen a stream of chart topping releases for Ciaran, with hits such as the Beatport #1 ‘Free Your Mind’ and ‘The Sunrise Through Your Eyes’ (on FSOE), ‘We Are The Night’ feat. Julie Thompson (Black Hole), ‘A Thousand Roads’ (Garuda). ‘Thoughts Become Things’ and ‘In Memory Of You’ (Grotesque) and ‘Tears’ (Digital Society Records) all achieving significant sales chart and playlist status right across the trance scene
Ciaran McAuley’s uplifting and energetic trance sounds are clearly in great demand, so much so that he’s recently completed several high profile official remixes that are getting at the start of 2018. First up is his remix of Ferry Corsten ‘Blueprint’, the title track of Ferry’s 2017 artist album, swiftly followed by the all-time trance classic Salt Tank ‘Eugina’ in February and Gareth Emery ‘Long Way Home’ on Garuda in April, with a Paul Oakenfold project in Perfecto also due for release. His solo material will be equally sought after with ‘Serenity’ soon to drop on the FSOE label.
With Ciaran McAuley’s releases catching the ears and capturing the minds of the global trance community it’s of little surprise that his music is fueling demand for his DJ sets. Ciaran transfixes audiences with his inimitable tune selection, fluid, pinpoint mixing and highly evident crowd connection at both intimate underground venues and larger festival stages.
2017 was a breakout year in many ways with new territories being discovered and some significant debuts including several festivals such as Creamfields UK, Electronic Family, Grotesque Indoor Festival, Kinetic Trance Gathering and a solo headline event at Mandela Hall in Belfast. Ciaran will hit new heights in 2018 with debut shows at the likes of Tomorrowland, Mysteryland / Trance Energy and Luminosity festivals, plus the Gatecrasher and Trancecoda brands confirmed in the schedule already.
Ciaran McAuley is a man on a mission and setting new benchmarks all the time with his music and DJ performances. 2018 is set to be a very exciting year indeed as this future hero continues his meteoric rise-up through the trance ranks!
