Amos & Riot Night

Hailing from one of the most famous cities in the UK, a place that is steeped in musical history, Liverpudlian trance artist AMOS & RIOT NIGHT aka David McClelland is one of the trance scenes rising talents.

In his adolescence, hearing trance for the first time on euro dance TV channels, he discovered the iconic sounds of Paul van Dyk, Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten and Above & Beyond. In his teens, as a young drummer in a metal band David discovered a great love for rhythm, add to that the melodic sounds of trance and it wasn’t long until he was hooked on a genre and scene that would go on to shape his late teens, 20’s and beyond.

After the digital era took full hold in the late 2000’s, a new trance sound with an exciting wave of artists to go with it caught David’s attention and led him even further down the trance path. Artists such as Sean Tyas, John O’Callaghan, Aly & Fila, John Askew, Activa, Daniel Kandi to name a few. His keen interest in this new sound soon became a creative urge, a want to learn production, it was time to dive in and make his take on this magical but even more driving modern trance sound.

As with many digital producers, DJing came later and the AMOS & RIOT NIGHT project was born in 2013 as the budding producer teamed up with Paul Holden (AMOS) who was David’s (RIOT NIGHT) original studio collaborator and DJ partner. After a great 6 years as a duo, it was 2019 when he decided to go solo. David kept the A&RN name as it was already picking up pace in the trance scene with releases on labels such as Silent Shore, Defcon, Critical State and Extrema.

The AMOS & RIOT NIGHT sound can be described as a super fresh, uplifting, emotional and very much melody driven style, with loads of uptempo energy. A production focused sound, which is how David first met trance master Sean Tyas who has become a mentor in his production career, from feedbacking demos and championing A&RN tracks from early on, to releasing his tracks on his massive Regenerate label. Other labels David has unlocked since going solo are the impressive AVA White, Always Alive, Monster Tunes, GO Music, Deep In Thought by VII, Vandit, Subculture and the giant FSOE main label.

DJ support is coming in from a who’s who in the global scene with radio and live gig plays by Sean Tyas, Armin van Buuren (ASOT), Paul van Dyk (VONYC RADIO), Aly & Fila (FSOE RADIO), Giuseppe Ottaviani, Simon Patterson, Solarstone (PURE TRANCE RADIO), Sneijder, John Askew, Will Atkinson (BBC RADIO ONE), Mark Sherry, Jordan Suckley, Indecent Noise, Activa, Alex M.O.R.P.H., Manuel Le Saux, Craig Connelly, Daniel Kandi, Ferry Tayle, Paul Denton, Will Rees, Allen Watts, Greg Downey, Dan Stone and many more.

The proud achievements are coming in thick and fast for AMOS & RIOT NIGHT. From hearing his music being played at massive events such as Dreamstate, Luminosity, The Gallery @ Ministry of Sound and Gatecrasher, to the scouse spinner featuring on the popular compilations by VII, FSOE 650, 10 Years of AVA and a collaboration feature with Manuel Le Saux for his album. Becoming a regular on Sean Tyas’ Regenerate label is also up there with his proudest moments.

DJ wise A&RN has picked up some great gigs so far with many more to come in 2021 and beyond. Playing to his home city crowd at Back To The Anthems, Gatecrasher @ Garlands and We Are You with names such as Judge Jules, Jan Johnston, Signum, Lost Witness, Sneijder, Shugz, David Rust, Liam Wilson. Already having made debuts in London @ Trance Sanctuary with Sean Tyas and Sam Jones, Ibiza @ Connected boat party with Andy Moor and even further afield his LA debut @ Intricacy.

Outside of DJing you will often see David as a face in the crowd at many UK and European trance events, his passion for the music is clear to see, supporting many different brands and promoters and meeting up with his wide-reaching network of trance friends and colleagues. Helping to break new talent and bring his city the cutting-edge trance bookings is high on David’s agenda as one third of the Evolution Events team in Liverpool.

Having already hit the top 10 on Beatport trance three times and with a string of new singles, collaborations, AMOS & RIOT NIGHT has become a much-loved name around the scene with a rapidly growing artist profile, helping him climb through the ranks of global trance music
