Due to a recent medical emergency, John O’Callaghan underwent an operation. As per official statement from John’s management, strict orders were received from the doctors that the artist is not allowed to fly long haul up to three months in order to allow the healing process to continue. Plans are already in place for John’s return. Our prayers go to John for a speedy recovery.
Following the departure of John O’Callaghan, Music Conference ASIA officially announced the additional international acts for its Official Dance Music Festival – Global Sound System.
Fresh from A State Of Trance 600, closing the Main Stage in Den Bosch, the Netherlands and ranked #68 DJ Mag Top 100 Poll 2012, Global Sound System welcomes DJ, producer, Mr. Skyfire – Shogun. American producer, Andrew Chen aka Shogun, is the first Asian DJ and producer to be signed to S107/Armada.
