"Never Fade Away" is the 2nd album from the brightest star in trance - Irish DJ John O'Callaghan. Last year he picked up the ‘Best Producer’ and ‘Best DJ’ trophies at the Irish Dance Music Awards; decisively conquered the notoriously-competitive dance-testing ground of Ibiza and became the first Irishman to play Trance Energy. In 2009 he stands at the threshold of dance superstardom. An immaculately produced album, "Never Fade Away" will soon come to rank among the likes of Paul van Dyk's "Out there and Back", Tiësto’s "In My Memory" & Ferry Corsten’s "Right of Way" as one of the greatest trance albums of it's time. A 12-headed manifest of John’s diverse sound, from the silent surroundings of a chilled masterpiece called "Never Fade Away" to the likes of speaker blasting, techy "Broken". Where different styles fade into unity and notes uncover hidden meanings, the album also supplies in the necessary danceable beats and contagious vocals. For this album, John collaborated with some of the best vocalist and producers around. Josie, Sarah Howells, Lo-Fi Sugar, Jaren and Audrey Gallagher have left their personal mark on several top notch tracks. But producers Aly & Fila, Tom Colontonio and Guiseppe Ottaviani are also part of this musical trip, as John collaborated with them on "Megalithic", "Through The Light’" and "Liquid Fire".
