The Pimp came through the ranks playing the Clare free party scene of 2001, later that year he had his first gig at the Gpo Nightclub, Galway, Ireland. After that he setup a night called Outpost 23 in his hometown which led him to play various gigs around the country and also a support slot the next year for Agnelli and Nelson at Ireland’s biggest nightclub of the time called Enigma! In 2003 he began 2 sway towards the acid techno sound which was no stranger to him having first heard it on the free party scene of the mid 90’s, a massive SP23 party also springs to mind around 97/98 in East Clare!! Anyway he has not looked back since, he still plays and produces acid techno today and also many other forms of techno, house, drum and bass and hardtek. He’s been responsible for bringing artists such as Chris Liberator, Dj Ant, D.A.V.E The Drummer, Dj Tek, Dj Clodagh, Guy McAffer, John Rundell, Jonno Brien, Rhythm Technologies, Sarah Fab, Dj Rackitt and Black Sun Empire to Galway, Ireland through a clubnight called Recipe and his own night Discotek from 2005 to 2010. Over the years he’s played for many different clubs nights, charities, festivals, free parties and soundsystems all over Ireland, the UK and Europe including Kommunity, Technoland, Shockabuku, Freekuency Festival, Tir Na Gcasta, Subhuman, Stinkypink, Breakology @ Life Festival, Acii Disco @ Life Festival, Plastik, Seismic, Shnare and Mindscape to name but a few!
