Des McMahon signed his first record deal at the young age of 18. Now, almost seven years later, the Philadelphia-born producer has become a staple in Washington D.C.’s swelling electronic music scene. Whether composing mind-bending drum and bass, or pushing sound systems to their limit in his DJ sets, McMahon’s unique sound encapsulates both limitless range and time-tested drive.
Despite the sonic confidence throughout his music, Des is humbled to have shared the stage with fellow artists Skrillex, Nero, Spor, and Noisia in front of sold-out crowds. The backing his music has received from world renowned artists such as Diplo, Evol Intent, and Dieselboy only validates the many sleepless nights and thousands of hours that Des has committed to his vision.
In a field with little certainty, there is no doubt that Des McMahon is poised to shake-up the status quo with his unbridled experimentation and relentless pursuit of sounds to grip the soul.
