Meet the true radio team!
DJ’ing since he was 17 and was buying vinyl records before he even had decks or knew how to mix.
After several months of playing his records one at a time on his Mum and Dad’s old vinyl player, he eventually bought himself a set of belt drive vinyl decks and a basic 2 channel mixer, but having no table in his bedroom at the time to put them on, he was forced to use his mattress as a makeshift DJ booth/table.
Since then, he has gone on to DJ at some of the best clubs, events, and afterparties in his hometown of Liverpool and beyond under his old DJ alias, supporting and warming up for some of the biggest and most respected DJs in house and techno during that time. DJ’s from Alex Celler, Sillicone Soul, Âme amd Slam to name but a few…
After a couple of years of jumping between genre’s trying to find his own style and identity, he finally found his sound within the trippy and twisted grooves of minimal & Romanian techno, the likes of which you can hear on ‘The Techno Bunker Radio Show’ which he hosts and which airs right here on True Radio Cork.
Here he showcases the most upfront, (mostly) vinyl only minimal and techno tracks from around the globe, as well as featuring exclusive guest mixes from some of the biggest names on the minimal techno scene, with previous mixes from DJs such as Nima Gorji, Melodie, Raha and the like.

starting out his musical journey because of a single trance record and nothing else… 4 Strings – Take Me Away.
Until then he had never listened to dance music before, but hearing this one tune gave him the bug for dance music.
2 weeks after hearing this tune for the first time, he began buying trance and hard house records and he hasn’t looked back since.
He has been playing at clubs and parties since around 2008 and has been lucky enough to play on the same line up as some of Europe’s most renowned DJs. Cream legend Seb Fontaine and Audiojack to name just two.
You can hear [ro. M .an] on ‘The Genesis Project Radio Show’ which he co-presents alongside his good friend and partner in crime Shakedown.
Here you’ll catch him playing a selection of house and tech house with tracks from the likes of Hot Trax, , DJ W!ld, Bontan, Guti, Ben Sterling, Andrea Olivia etc etc
House & Progressive Dance music.
The Shakedown Provider started mixing at the age of 15, never sticking to one style of music in order to explore genres & learn how to mix different sounds together to create his very own unique style.
The first record he ever bought was a garage track Called Nesha (What’s it going to be).
Currently, he plays a mix of House and Progressive dance. He is renowned for uncovering hidden gems long before other DJs do. Tracks that blow up into huge hits (such as CamelPhat – Cola).
