Dean Elso has quickly established himself as one of Leinster’s brightest emerging talents on both the techno and house circuits. With just four years of experience, Elso has achieved quite a lot in a relatively short amount of time. Having already played in some of the provinces biggest venues, including Trinity Nightclub, Maynooth and The Wiley Fox and The Karma Stone, Dublin, Elso has rubbed shoulders with some of the freshest and most in demand artists currently around, supporting the likes of Tommy Vercetti, Loco & Jam and Daithi.
Elso is also a keen producer. After assembling his very own home studio, he recently decided to dedicate his time to perfecting his skills and honing his sound. Often putting twelve to fourteen hours a day into studio time, Elso sees music production as a multi dynamic process, influenced by events and experiences in his life, and believes in the need to connect with his music before he can be truly happy with it. “I do it all day every day, one of my main drives is the interest in seeing how far I can push myself and my productions”. Drawing on influences like Sven Väth, Jeff Mills and Tony De Vit, Elso’s brand of relentlessly driving techno is showcased on his first release, Turbulence, which he released on his own imprint, All Access Recordings.
Dean currently brings his All Access radio show to Phever FM, one of Dublin’s most popular radio stations, where you can hear him sharing his favourite selections and showcasing some of Ireland’s hottest up and coming talents. He is also an active podcaster, releasing episodes of his series, The Green Zone, twice a month.
It’s clear that Dean Elso is one of the hardest working and most active DJs on the local circuit and later this year he will add a number of international dates to his already impressive CV. With booking already lined up in Croatia and Ibiza, as well a number of finished tracks waiting to be released, Elso’s is a name that you are likely to hear coming to a venue near you very soon.
