Ciaran McAuley

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!

Introducing Ciaran McAuley: These days as a standalone Producer/DJ and formerly as one half of renowned trance duo Walsh & McAuley, Ciaran (pronounced Kier-ron) McAuley has been responsible for some of the most scene-seizing music to arrive in the last half decade.
Now among the brightest emeralds in Ireland's rich trance history, he's one of his country's much-vaunted new breed of trance producer. Alongside his own estimable discography, he's worked on the music of established scene legends, handled the vocals of some of its most revered singer-songwriters and recorded/remixed for a near Who's Who of its vanguard labels (Armada, Black Hole and VANDIT among them). Most recently he signed his debut solo single ('It Doesn't Rain Forever') to Giuseppe Ottaviani's GO On Air Recordings label.
Behind the decks he's transfixed audiences with his inimitable tune selection, fluid, pinpoint mixing and highly evident crowd connection. He's thrilled fans, drawn substantial praise from fellow DJs, producers and the media alike and now, as a solo artist, is poised to warp through trance's ranks once again.
Production story: Following a raft of initial singles throughout '07 and '08, it was the arrival of 'Sea of Lights' the following year - released on Roger Shah's Magic Island label - that firmly established Ciaran McAuley and then-partner Marc Walsh on trance's lovers radar. The demo of 'Beyond Belief' brought them to the attention of Solarstone, who signed the EP to his Crashing Waves imprint. This, in turn, prompted a collaborative outing with Giuseppe Ottaviani and vocalist Emma Lock on 'Ready', which the quartet signed to Paul van Dyk's VANDIT Records.
With the sound evermore locked to the purer end of trance's dial, W&M were signed to Solarstone's Touchstone Recordings – part of the Black Hole Recordings group. The partnership with the label quickly bore fruit and in just two years delivered a clutch of Touchstone releases to club floors. Included among them have been 'Someday', 'Ashgrove Throne' and 'In This Light'. Perhaps most notably it generated the club hit 'Sail On The Waves', which featured the distinctive vocals of American singer David Berkley. The track became a download chart hit and a 9.5/10 Tune of the Month in the UK's DJ Mag. In their review, the publication said 'Sail' delivered on 'lump-in-the-throat key changes", had 'folk-ish vocals & intelligent lyrics" and praised the track's uplift, saying it went 'airborne inside its first minute!"
As a remixer, his and Marc's list of remix credits includes many of trance music's hierarchy. Among them have been reworks of releases by Chicane, Solarstone, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Filo & Peri, Andain, Josh Gabriel and Kyau & Albert. They've also worked with vocalists that include Grammy nominated singer Nadia Ali, fellow Ireland-er Audrey 'Big Skies' Gallagher, Sarah Lynn and, on 'Sea of Lights', Antonia Lucas. Most recently he's reworked TaxiGirl (aka Jes 'As The Rush Comes' Brieden)'s 'High Glow' and 'Eugina' by preeminent trance outfit Salt Tank
Behind the decks: Ciaran made his name as the proverbial local hero DJ, holding longstanding residencies with Irish clubbing bastion Lush, as well as the Transmission nights at Shine. These have seen him share deck duties with luminaries such as Above & Beyond, Markus Schulz and numerous others. Of late Ciaran's deck-based activities have begun to take him further afield, and has seen him play support for recent tours by Gareth Emery (on the Drive Tour) and Dash Berlin.
Future Perfect: Recently embarking on a solo career, Ciaran's maintains the melodic, intuitive heartfelt melodies of his McAuley/Walsh years, but now brought to floors with a clubbier, more forceful drive. This has brought his music ever more closely into line with the output of labels like Solarstone's Pure Trance, Aly & Fila's Future Sound of Egypt and the GO On Air imprint. It's with the latter that his first solo single 'It Doesn't Rain Forever' was released in October of 2014.
