Welcome to the online home of Diarmaid O Meara, Irish electronic music artist.

Irish electronic music artist, deep into intense but soulful, atmospheric but industrial, heavy but spaced techno. As an owner of the Gobsmacked label and club-night, Diarmaid has been promoting global artists large and small through releases and underground events since 2007. Also as the curator of the Audio Affair Broadcast series, which airs across over 20 global stations bi-weekly, his scope for discovering and promoting cutting edge unreleased techno is unrelenting.

His regular DJ sets of heavy, energetic sets across the planet showcase both newly released music from underground artists, and his own productions. Delivered using a gifted and precise mixing style of heavy cutting and quick blending, which creates a blur of constant track building akin to a multi hour crescendo of Detroit, melodic, break-beat and industrial style techno with a dark streak. A true stalwart of the European techno scene, with an unwavering dedication to the underground and the development of cutting edge electronic music.

On this site, you can find some recent news, free track downloads, and an up to date list of his Audio Affair Broadcast radio show. For a more complete overview of recent events, check out Diarmaid’s Facebook artist page.

Getting some crazy noise out of the Octatrack feedbacking a Mother32 signal, and using the Octa fader to remove all other channels. Sounds very cool.
