Six years into his career as a DJ/producer and Dublin’s Ian O’Donovan continues to surprise and delight. From the get-go his tech-house sound earned him props from stalwarts including Laurent Garnier and Dave Clarke. He’s since collaborated with John Digweed, remixed Inner City’s Detroit classic “Good Life” and has issued floor burners for Christian Smith’s Tronic, Sasha’s Last Night on Earth label and Adam Beyer’s Drumcode Records. Not a shabby resume, eh? O’Donovan continues his upward ascent with “The Step,” a smoldering 4/4 opus culled from his two-track Skyn EP out April 4 on Beatport via Exploited Ghetto, which we’re thrilled to world premiere. Now go on and soak up O’Donovan’s dreamy techno manna below.
