Although being an active member of the electronic music scene for more than ten years now, having worked on a variety of productions and remixes for artists like Andy Moor, Markus Schulz, Alex M.O.R.P.H., Talla2XLC and Andy Moor, Josh Gallahan aka Rudi Dittmann is best known for his first release in 2008 under his own name, called “1st Strike”, and his numerous productions together with the internationally well know DJ and producer atb.
From his hometown Bochum the studied audio producer made his first steps towards his musical career in the late 90s, together with his long-time friend Timo Becker. Shortly afterwards he met his now good friend and mentor Andre Tanneberger and in 2002 worked with on tracks releases on atbs album “Dedicated”. This was the beginning of a still lasting working relationship, which not only influenced the last four atb albums, but also allowed Josh to explore and broaden his horizon, both personally and musically, emerging in a passion for DJing himself, due to him travelling around the globe with atb on his tours and bookings.
In early 2008 he finally releases his long anticipated solo album “1st strike” on the well known label “A State of Trance”, which, among others, is supported by the likes of Armin van Buuren. Following this release, Josh Gallahan embarked onto his first world tour together with atb, which gave him the opportunity to spin the decks at the most popular clubs in North and South America and all over Europe. His 2009 tour dates featured locations in San Francisco, Dallas, New York, Vancouver, Bucharest, Krakow, Moscow, Minsk and Berlin.
In 2010 Josh Gallahan once again showed his compassion for electronic dance music by working on many songs as a producer and contributing songs as songwriter for atbs top 10 album “Future Memories”, the most popular one being ATB pres. Josh Gallahan „Luminescence“.
And also in 2010 Josh Gallahan is moving at full speed. Starting off the year is another collaboration with atb featured on the “ATB THE DJ 5“ Compilation, titled ATB & Josh Gallahan „Mythology“. But it is on this compilation also that he presents his next stroke of genius, the track Josh Gallahan „Shades of love“, featuring the vocals of none other than the internationally well know singer Jennifer Karr.
Once again through this incredible trance tune he proves that he is one of the top producers of the scene and that people can expect even more from him in the coming months.
So stay tuned for Josh Gallahan!
