In honor of #TranceGiving, aka Dreamstate SoCal 2017, we want to give attendees the opportunity to know the new talent who will be joining the ranks of “Trancegiving Tour Guides”. Each week, we will feature information on the DJs who are new to Dreamstate SoCal this year and give you some beats to help familiarize you with their work. Next up in our series is… Key4050!
Don’t forget to check out the other artist bios in our series to get familiar with the rest of the new artists on the lineup!
Come one, come all, and prepare for a set unlike anything you have experienced before, as two of Ireland’s best will join forces as Key4050!
In the red corner, we have John O’Callaghan.
A master of both tech trance and uplifting melodic trance, JOC has built an empire, delivering some of the most revered and memorable tracks of all time including “Big Sky“, “Find Yourself”, “Lies Cost Nothing“, and “Stay With Me”. He is the ruler of Subculture Radio and the Subculture mega label under the Black Hole Recordings umbrella. Over the years he has supported artists like
Over the years he has supported artists like Sean Tyas, Jordan Suckley, Will Atkinson, Guiseppe Ottaviani, and Mark Sherry, among many more. As an ambassador of “real” trance, he prides himself on pushing the limits of sound, bringing the underground into the light, helping to lead the trance movement with proper sets that transcend the boundaries of the conscious mind, never watering anything down.
In the blue corner, we have Bryan Kearney.
When it comes to uplift, psy, and tech trance, Kearney has got you covered! A multidimensional artist with an incredible presence in the trance industry, Bryan Kearney has been paving his way for almost 15 years. As the host of the incredibly popular Kearnage radio show and the big boss of Kearnage Recordings, Bryan Kearney prides himself on establishing a forward thinking underground brand with a firm emphasis on energetic dance-floor-driven music.
Take one look at his discography that boasts impressive albums like 2017’s Who’s Afraid Of 138?! (Mixed by Bryan Kearney & Chris Schweizer) as well as massive tracks like “Te Amo”, “Wake Up Call“, “The Game Changer”, and the fan favorite collab with Coming Soon!!! called “Anti Social Media” and it is clear that Bryan Kearney always brings the heat.
Stream Key4050 – “Beetlejuice” on YouTube:
Put these two together and the result will be nothing short of mayhem on the dance floor!
Trancegiving weekend will never be the same as John O’Callaghan and Bryan Kearney will step onto the Dreamstate stage for their debut performance as Key4050, a project formed in 2016 that has already sent the trance world into a full on tailspin but has yet to come to fruition on the big stage.
With only a handful of tracks to reference like “Beetlejuice”, “Dinklebot”, and “Gianfranco”, it is safe to say that Key4050 will smother us with some of the hardest, eclectic, extraordinary sounds that two of trance’s biggest and brightest stars can muster up. All while bringing an energy that will blow us straight out of our dancing shoes! Mark your calendars because trance history is about to be made at Dreamstate SoCal 2017!
