Diarmaid O Meara
Diarmaid O Meara – DJ/Producer and Label Owner

With the year coming to a close... And with almost thirty track releases across a dozen labels in 2010 alone, the explosion of his Gobsmacked label which is gearing up for its 70th release, the kick off and wide broadcasting of Gobsmacked’s new Podcast Series, guestings on some of the worlds top Techno shows, the dropping of his critically acclaimed “Structured Noise” album and more gigs than you can shake a stick at..... 2010 was definitely Diarmaid’s busiest year yet... But 2011 is looking to be insanely busy to the point of excess.

With almost a dozen releases already planned for early 2011, including a remix of one of the biggest Techno tracks of all time ‘Space DJz Ak47’ and his own remix release which will include almost two dozen global producers and hero’s, his Gobsmacked label will be looking towards its 100th release celebration at the end of the year and with every release becoming more and more profillic, this looks to be a major blow out. Also, Gobsmacked Sessions, the podcast series/radio broadcast show started alongside other Gobsmacked member Luke Creed has been gaining momentum with growing re-broadcasts on FM and digi stations worldwide. Not to mention, the kicking off of the new Gobsmacked Mastering service in conjunction with Neptune Studio’s Berlin and the legendary Patrick DSP.
