My journey in the world of DJing commenced at the tender age of 14, back in 1993, within the vibrant music scene of the United Kingdom. Armed with a set of turntables, a meticulously chosen “made2fade” mixer, and The Prodigy’s seminal album, I embarked on a musical odyssey that has spanned three remarkable decades.
Over the course of these thirty years, my life has been a rich tapestry woven with unforgettable memories, punctuated by countless gigs, coveted radio slots, electrifying festival performances, and unforgettable nights at iconic clubs. This journey has not only embraced the vibrant music scene here in Dublin but has also carried me across the globe to destinations as diverse as Australia, Spain, London, and Ibiza. My voyage through the musical landscape has navigated the transitions from the ’90s to the noughties, through the Teen years, and into the dynamic twenties. It has been a privilege to share my passion for Funky House music with fellow like-minded DJs.
While I have a profound love for playing soulful, vocal house tunes, I remain deeply rooted in the classics that have shaped the electronic music landscape. My commitment to this timeless fusion is unwavering.
In 2010, I embarked on a new chapter by joining Play FM Dublin, where I launched my radio show, “The Sound Selection.” This show has been a continuous labor of love, now spanning an impressive 13 years. Every week, “The Sound Selection” provides listeners with a global perspective on the evolving House music scene, airing every Tuesday from 8 to 10 pm.
As I reflect on this incredible journey, I am grateful for the support and camaraderie of fellow DJs who share my passion and the loyal audience that has joined me on this musical voyage. Here’s to the past three decades and to the exciting chapters yet to come.
Catch Del’s show The Sound Selection every Tuesday@ 8pm.
