Northern Ireland based Aaron McClelland, the production genius behind Fonzerelli smashed onto the scene and quickly rose to prominence becoming one of the most established and hottest production talents in the world with his first release “Moonlight Party” in 2005 which became # 1 Download Of The Year on DJ Download and shot his own Mena Music label to # 1 Label Of The Year on DJ Download becoming a hit in Australia and Holland and more importantly a beacon to Aaron’s talent.
Every major and many minor labels around the world were lining up requesting Fonzerelli remixes and it was just as well that Aaron is insatiably creative and super prolific as he was asked a lot and he fulfilled pretty much every request often making 2 or 3 original tracks in a day notching up hundreds of productions under his belt including mixes of several Top 5 acts such as Adam Lambert, Fedde Le Grand, J Magik & Wickerman, Chanel, Sash, Mauro Picotto, Beatfreakz and Tiesto ft Maxi Jazz as well as original material for his own Mena Music label and Big In Ibiza.
Spending half his time producing under his various aliases for his mena music label including Yer Man, Touch & Go, Brazen (#1 Beatport) & Digital Glitter, Dark Matter, Frame of mind among many others. The label showcases the other side of his productions with genres including House: Deep: Indie dance & Nu disco.
Fonzerelli is one dance producer who, despite his huge global success over the last few years has remained one of these mysterious entities, where the music remains the most important aspect of who he is. He’s had Top 40 hits in countries across the world and he’s worked with a host of Top 5 UK acts, remixing for every major record label and the majority of independents, including being the only other producer to appear on Basshunter’s debut #1 platinum selling album. His pivotal influence in the 80s pop revival that is currently seen in the UK charts week in week out is wildly understated with his 80s-infused, synth-filled club smashes having graced dancefloors over the world for years before the rest.
Despite his desire to first and foremost remain a musician, to prove he is capable of being the superstar DJ, Fonzerelli occasionally selects a moment to appear. This includes following a personal request by Tiësto for him to play at his sell-out event in the world’s biggest club, Privilege Ibiza.
