Ignite Sessions DJ Residences: Ignite Sessions Radio Show @ Power FM (PowerFM.org), Dublin & Ignite Sessions Nights.

Magnus Johanson is a well experienced and future orientated international pro DJ, radio programmer and an upcoming producer. British American, half Swedish from mother’s side and was born in Geneva. He grew up in Brighton and he has previously worked within the music industry in London for major/independent label/publishing companies. Currently, he has DJ residencies for his ‘Ignite Sessions’ radio show at Power FM and also ‘Ignite Sessions Nights’. He has performed for international radio stations and venues in Europe and USA.

In Sept 2013, he relocated to live and work in Munich with the aim to establish himself as one of the top players within the growing Munich’s music/club scenes and beyond in Europe and USA. Continuing to develop his sound and the ‘Ignite Sessions’ brand: ‘Ignite Sessions’ (formerly known as 'Ignite Dance Sessions') radio show and ‘Ignite Sessions Nights’ club night event and also coming later with plans for a production label and a new website.

His musicianship is even more amazing when you know and realise that he was born with congenital deafness in both ears from birth, due to rubella caught by his pregnant mother. To defy the odds, he managed to DJ with his only one functioning right ear to pursue his dream of becoming a professional DJ that he is today. His goal is to further his international DJ career by continuing to develop his DJ and production sounds bringing and performing his unique style blend mesh of deep-/ tech-/ funk-house, techno-/ and tech-funk-breaks... plus hard house for harder generation/nights to audiences worldwide.
