SHAQ (Gary O Sullivan) is one of the most renowned and respected DJs in the DJing world in the South of Ireland and it’s easy to see why. SHAQ’s DJing career began when only 6 months after picking up his first set of decks in London he won a nationwide mix competition where the prize was to play alongside one of his biggest influences, JOHN DIGWEED. After gaining this opportunity he didn’t waste it and put in a performance that was rightly rewarded with a residency at the same club – The Gallery.
More residencies quickly followed for SHAQ. Supporting huge acts across Ireland which included playing on the Irish leg of the famous MANUMISSION Club Tour amongst other great nights. In 2001 whilst spending a year down under in Australia he headlined the ‘Irish Invasion Parties’ flying between Sydney and Melbourne all the while gaining recognition and reputation from clubbers and DJs alike.
SHAQ has continued in that vein in all the years since, stamping quality and enthusiasm on everything he does. Playing anything from Deep, Melodic House to Breaks & Techno, utilizing the effects as a major part of his live sets.
SHAQ has played at the MINISTRY OF SOUND (London), PACHA (London), EGG (London), BRIXTON ACADEMY (London), OXEGEN Festival Main Stage (Dublin), AQUAPHONIC Festival Main Stage (Prague), DECOMPRESSION Festival (Waterford) and numerous Clubs & venues around Ireland.
SHAQ has also played alongside the likes of JAMES ZABIELA, DAVE SEAMAN, YOUSEF, QUIVVER and more.
