OCHO Announce details of debut album Titled: “YOUNG HUNTING”
Out: May 25th Available on iTunes
OCHO are one of Ireland’s best-kept Electronic secrets. Working hard perfecting their sound for over 2 years, they are finally ready to release their ambitious and infectious debut album YOUNG HUNTING. Combining atmospheric layered trans-cultural electronic music with lush dynamics akin to the likes of Imogen Heap and Mazzy Star.
OCHO are a collaborative collective made up of Stace Gill and DOS, with various guest musicians including Eanna Hickey, Gerry O’Connor, Jill Deering, Suzanne Savage, Lisa Cuthbert and Sarah Gleeson.
Gill has supported and shared the stage with many great musicians over the last few years including James Vincent McMorrow, Declan O’Rourke, The Brad Pitt Light Orchestra, and many more, and was recently asked to perform backing vocals for The Dubliner’s Patsy Watchorn’s latest album. Tony Fenton has described Stace Gill as “One of those rare gems worth highlighting” when he awarded her first collaboration with his highly coveted Daily Download spot on Today FM.
Producer and writer DOS began his career with a scholarship to Paul McCartney’s highly acclaimed Music college LIPA, an award given only to 1 student every year based on outstanding ability and potential. DOS is a highly sought after producer, but has committed the majority of his time to this record. He has worked on projects previously with Kool Keith, Guilty Simpson, DJ Tu-Ki and his previous band Exit 15. As Exit 15 DOS was chosen by David Holmes for a Sony PSP soundtrack. DOS has already been signed to labels in the UK and Sweden, but this album is most definitely his work of art. He prides himself on attention to detail and creating new sounds unique to OCHO. DOS is a modest genius, and OCHO’s debut album will for the first time reveal this hidden talent.
DOS’ collaboration with Gill has blended two unique talents into one mind-blowing sound. OCHO’s debut album will command your attention and leave you craving more.

Fashion photographer; Agata Stoinska, was so impressed with their music that she offered to collaborate with them for their first music video. When Stoinska played OCHO for the award winning Polish Director Marcin Koszalko, he insisted on working with the band on this project. OCHO flew to Poland in March 2012 and filmed their first music video with Marcin, Agata and a whole film crew, including some of Roman Polanski’s cameramen from The Pianist. The first screening of this masterpiece will be at OCHO’s album Launch on Good Friday 6th April, in association with BLOW Magazine in D Light Studios. Doors 7pm.
