Originally from Co.Sligo but more recently based in Co.Kildare , Random began DJing in 2000/2001 When he bought his first set of cheap direct drive turn tables and started taking regular trips to Dublin to visit Spin Dizzy and Abbey Disc's. He began his professional career at The Clarence Hotel, earning his stripes as a warm up DJ for resident DJ's Roger B and Tommy Finan.
This eventually led to guest slots around the west coast at various venues before moving to Dublin in 2003. After getting more guest slots around Dublin at almost every dance venue in the city, Random took a Thursday night slot on Dublins top Pirate station at the time, Nova 94.7FM getting his sound out to a wider audience.
He even appeared as a guest reviewer on National station 2FM's The Firing Squad with top DJ Mr.Spring twice.
After a short break from playing commercially and getting married in 2005 , Random started back with a renewed sense of purpose working as resident Friday night DJ at the Beacon in Sandyford for 2 years before moving to the Saturday night at the end of 2008 and becoming head resident DJ.
Signed to Irish Label Dublin Xpress Recordings in 2009 and working with Nice&Nasty on a number of projects, Captain Random has had releases on Gobsmacked and Red Robot Records.
Captain Random is a recognised Ableton Live Performance professional
