In a short space of time, Aaron Cullen has firmly established as one to watch on the EDM Scene. The Irish DJ & Producer began to develop a love for EDM back in 2006 and since then has self taught himself how to play the decks and also how to produce in the studio. This talent has not gone unnoticed with mentors such as John O'Callaghan, Bryan Kearney and Neal Scarborough all on board to push Aaron on to the next level.
Aaron refuses to be pigeon-holed or labelled towards a certain style or sound and this is proven by the diversity of the clubnights and artists that he has performed for and alongside. He has performed in venues such as Tripod, The POD, The Button Factory, Pure Nightclub & The Twisted Pepper. He has also performed at festivals including the Mystik Fest & Hedliners and alongside artists such as John O'Callaghan, Paul Van Dyk, Spektre, Ferry Corsten, Lisa Lashes, DJ Murphy and many others.
He is highly regarded by some of Ireland's biggest names in dance music. He was personally asked by John O'Callaghan to warm up for him at his sold out Unfold Album Launch Party at The Button Factory in Dublin, a performance that did not go unnoticed. This was followed up by a support slot for German superstar Paul Van Dyk at Dublin superclub Tripod in July of 2011. He was also made resident at Bryan Kearney's KEARNAGE Clubnight in Dublin upon a personal request from Bryan himself. He has also been a resident at the Filth Clubnight in Dublin since 2010. Aaron was nominated for Best Up & Coming DJ at the Irish Dance Music Awards in 2011, a testament to his talent and his success in such a short space of time.
Aaron has recently taken his first steps into the world of production and he has had immediate success. His debut track Juggernaut has been signed to Timmy & Tommy's award winning Full Tilt Recordings label. The track has received widespread support from Gareth Emery, Orla Feeney, Neal Scarborough, John Gibbons and also on John O'Callaghan's Subculture Podcast. Juggernaut has also been one of John's biggest tracks at Cream at Amnesia in Ibiza for the summer of 2011.
Its early days for this talented dance music enthusiast but the future is most certainly bright.
Bryan Kearney - "Aaron is an extremely talented young artist who has a very bright future ahead of him. His love for dance music has been evident from the day we met and I'm delighted that he has taken the step from dancefloor to DJ with such relative ease. His open mindedness and musical versatility makes him stand out and it's quite clear that he has taken all of his experiences on board in order to progress as an artist. I wish him all the best."
Neal Scarborough - "As soon as I met Aaron Cullen I knew he was destined for big things. His love for all things music is so refreshing and inspiring. One of Irelands rising stars. It has been a pleasure seeing at first hand his career develop and I look forward to watching it grow more and more."
John O'Callaghan - "It's not too often that someone comes along who you just know is born to be a DJ. It's like a sixth sense, you can just tell with Aaron Cullen that he is one of these select few. A true music fan and in it for all the right reasons."
