Johnny Holmes


With over 19 years of playing, borrowing, recording, loosing, scratching, spinning, queuing, starting, stopping, lending, taking, buying, editing, mastering, music has made Discolandia what it is today, And thats only the start of it! Budweiser Bud Thud All Ireland Dj Competition Winner 1999. Movida Corona Dj Competition Republic Of Ireland Winner 2004, 2008, 2010. I've had the chance to play at some fantastic venue's over the year's. Ministry Of Sound London, Pacha Ibiza, Mandara Acapulco, China Lounge Berlin, Prater Dome Vienna to name a few. I've also Dj'd along side some names like Dj Falcon (Daft Punk Crew) Sebastian Leger, Gary Dedman (HoxtonWhores), Martin Solveig, Andry Nalin (Nalin & Kane) again just a few names but each Dj needing a different sound for there warm up's and I'l alway's change direction when needed to play support. Music and Dj'n has changed since I started and I like to think I've moved with the times as best I can without loosing the feel for it. Recently upgrading to a full Pioneer 2000 set'up I still love to mix live without a laptop and set list. I've worked in 4 different record shop's in the early day's and still love to blow the dust of some rare 12's knowing some track's never get old means they can still stand the test of time. Discolandia is a project I started in 2010 and is still in the early stages of development, with 1 residency secured @ 5th On Teeling Sligo radio and travel will follow when I find the time in my busy schedule. It's tough times we live in and if I've learned anything over the year's it's "work hard, enjoy it, rise above the negativity and respect the Artist's". JH X
