‘Owen started life on a very small Sheep farm in Orkney where the only music available was on his wind up radio which he recorded using his Fisher Price tape player, creating radio shows by talking between the tracks. Later in school Owen DJ’ed for school dances and private parties under the Dj name ‘Semtex’.
After school he moved to New Zealand around 2008 and immediately got hooked on D&B and Dubstep. Combined with his first meeting with a proper rig and a collection of festivals he got the bug.
In the last 8 years since returning from NZ Owen has been DJing and running radio stations as host starting with a 3 year running ‘Back To Bassics’ show while at University, only finishing after leaving for a year In Thailand. Playing over there nearly every weekend at a range of venues from secret beach parties to local clubs, on his return and after recovering from a serious medical episode he launched ‘The 59th Degree’ Live Stream service, booking a new local artist every Thursday and running live streamed events across country including recently in Dublin and Amsterdam. Names who have appeared included to name a few Brian BrainStorm, Mr Multiplex, Mrs Magoo and Pulls Up Collective along side 50+ local artists.
At the same time his skill behind the decks has made vast improvements in the last few years and particularly the last 6 months supporting Royal T, Flowdan, Kilent, Barely Legal and Brian BrainStorm just to name a few. With summer bookings including 7 festival dates and 2 international appearances alongside a huge number of planned live streams, 2017 is looking to be a big year for MetraGnome.’
