Eamonn Doyle

Unquestionably a pivotal figure in Irish dance music, Eamonn Doyle has made his mark locally - as DJ, producer, label owner/manager, club promoter, and as all-round advocate and enthusiastic purveyor of all that is good in techno and electronic music.

He first made his mark in his home country when he co-formed the now-legendary indie label Dead Elvis in 1991. Converted to the emerging sound of techno and electronic music, he founded D1 Recordings 3 years later. An unprecedented platform to help push Irish producers, D1 Recordings has remained consistent in the quality of its output, and has featured releases from both Irish and international talent including Donnacha Costello, Dave Donohoe, Mark Broom, DJ Bone and Keith Tucker. 2004 saw Doyle establish D1ASPORA as a sister label to focus attention on the diversity of new talent emerging from within Ireland's electronic music scene. Doyle also established Model One - the longest running techno club in Ireland. The club has featured a wide variety of guests down through the years: from Auxmen, Octave One, and Laurent Garnier, to DJ Godfather, Peter Ford, and Underground Resistance. As resident DJ at Model One, Doyle has considerable experience behind the decks and has played numerous dates across Europe (his second Asian tour is coming up in Spring 2007). Doyle also finds time to produce (as D1 for solo projects, and as Active Service Unit with Scott Logan), and he has released and remixed for D1 Recordings, Piranha, Hertz Recordings, Traum and Fugato Technologies.

Doyle has also made a significant and defining contribution to the development of electronic music in Ireland through his establishment of DEAF (Dublin Electronic Arts Festival) in 2002 - an annual event designed to bring the electronic arts both into new environments and to new audiences. Since its inception, the festival has showcased an eclectic array of international artists (from Coil to 4Hero,Resistance, Ulrich Schnauss and Mu-ziq) alongside their Irish counterparts.
