Blurb (Exclusive Promo):
After being discovered by Laurent Garnier in 2009, Ian O’Donovan’s music has gone from strength to strength & has received constant support and plays from some of the worlds biggest DJ's including Garnier himself, John Digweed, Dave Clarke, Richie Hawtin, Kevin Saunderson & Hernan Cattaneo. In the last few years Ian’s tracks have found their way on to labels such as Bedrock, KMS, Virgin and Wolfskuil to name but a few.

His first outing on Irish imprint Heavy Reel sees him bring his usual melodic yet driving style to the table on tracks Medera & Tungsten, whilst Swedish maestro Samuel L Session provides a heads down peak time remix of the title track.
