Eóin Smyth or “Smythy” as he is more affectionately known is a born and bred Dublin boy. He has been on the flip through House & Techno for the most part of his life. Dragged up on 70’s Disco and 80’s groovers by his parents as a child. A love and respect for all things that make the masses move was carved into his soul since the early days.
Having always been attracted to the percussive element of sound, Eoin found himself leaning more towards the electronic side of music. Educating himself within the culture of the sound enabled him to take it all in. Like many before him the natural progression from enthusiast to DJ began in 2003 when he found himself with an ever growing collection of records but with nowhere to play them. This soon changed over the coming years as he began to ply his trade around the Dublin circuit holding residencies at some of the best local parties of that time.
Fast forward to 2007 and his love affair with that infamous island in the middle of the Mediterranean began. From here his passion truly flourished. Having played a number of gigs in Space Ibiza and Bora Bora within the first few weeks of arrival, the thirst for more was now very much apparent. Not only did he find himself heavily involved with industry heavyweights such as DanceTrippin TV, a world leader in providing clubbers with up-to-date performances of DJs and electronic music news, he then joined the mighty Safehouse Management team and Carl Cox at Space.
Immersing himself into Carl Cox’s nights and his roster of globally esteemed artists every Tuesday during those summers then opened his eyes to how it really should be laid down. Through his approachable personality and genuine love for electronic music he has since landed an influential role in proceedings for Carl Cox and the Space Ibiza family becoming a well-known face on the island. Whether it be his energetic presence, or Irish charm, this is a man who truly knows what clubbers want from both a promoter and musical standpoint and those lucky enough to witness his sets both in Ibiza and abroad will attest to this.
