Tommy HolohanMonnom Black / Rave Selekts / Techno & Cans – IRL
While being labelled one of the spearheads of rave revival over the past few years, Dublin native Tommy Holohan has done much more than attach himself to a trend throughout his rise to the tip of every techno fan's tongue. Having leapfrogged his way to the top of the Irish pecking order through releases on his own Rave Selekts label alongside an appearance on Dax J's Monnom Black, plus Skull Crushing Techniques Volumes 1 and 2 on the Berlin-based imprint HAVEN, his popularity has swung further inland as he rises the European ranks, thanks to his unrelenting techno style that infuses the intensity of UK sounds with the driving techno we've come to expect from mainland Europe.
With his productions doing the rounds online and in record shops, he himself leaves nothing on the table when it comes to his selection, having gotten the nod from Boiler Room last year where he delivered one of the most memorable festival sets the online platform has seen. All the while, he has uprooted dance floors in Griessmuehle, Corsica Studios, District 8, Life Festival. With nods from established techno heads such as Blawan, SPFDJ, Sunil Sharpe, DJ Stingray, Helena Hauff and more, he has carved out a respected name that is only growing on a weekly basis.
