The late nineties saw Sean’s career as a DJ take off. At the early age of fifteen, in the February of 1999, Sean secured himself residency at Zeus Nightclub (Chelmsford, Essex) playing their weekly under eighteens event. He remained a resident for six years playing his unique style of House music including such artists as; ‘Moloko – Sing It Back’ and ‘Sun Kids feat. Chance – Rescue Me’ and introducing US Garage artists such as ‘Wamdue Projects – King of My Castle’. This early admission on to the club scene soon progressed into a four night residency playing alongside some of the biggest DJ’s in Essex, taking his career to new heights.
From Zeus Sean went on to play at many of the leading clubs in Essex including; Hippodrome (Colchester), Rumours (Clacton), Ikon Diva (Basildon), Jumpin’ Jaks (Harlow) and Fire & Ice (Ipswich) where he remained as a head line DJ three nights a week for a year. Whilst continuing to DJ around Essex Sean found time to develop his career further working at Amber Studios (Chelmsford, Essex). Sean continued his passion for music and added to his skills and experience, recording and engineering bands as a full time occupation.
In the autumn of 2006 Sean left Fire & Ice (Ipswich) to begin another residency at Escape Nightclub (Copford, Essex) where he remained for five years. Guaranteeing a night to remember, Sean continued to bring his style of upfront Funky House, Electro & Club Classics to a packed dance floor every Wednesday, Friday & Saturday night and played alongside some of the biggest names and brands in the clubbing network including; Kinky Malinki, Steve Smart, Brandon Block, Freemasons, Graeme Park, Alistair Whitehead, Jonathan Ulysses, Fran Cosgrove and Kate Lawler to name a few! In the summer of 2010 Sean also became a massive hit as a resident DJ for Colchester’s most popular Under 18’s nights, ‘Pretty Wild’.
In addition to his residency at Escape Nightclub Sean has collaborated with two of the biggest brand names in house music, warming up for both Hed Kandi and Hat Club events on a number of occasions.
It was back in 2007, through Escape Nightclub, that Sean met and began working with Pav, a world renowned percussionist most famous for his work with everyone from Hed Kandi and the Miami Winter Music Conference to boyband, Take That!

Following this closure of Escape Nightclub in April 2011, Sean can now be found DJing at TP’s (Colchester, Essex) every Friday night & has just secured a new residency every Saturday night at the brand new Wahoo Nightclub (Clacton, Essex).
As well as DJing, Sean is currently working on his first album, a mix of Soulful, Disco & Funky house music, as well as recording & mixing bands in his spare time.
The length of Sean’s residencies at some of the top nightclubs around Essex is a testament to his popularity as a DJ. His music, both DJ mixes & his own projects speak for themselves.
“Amazing DJ & a true gentleman Sean Scanlan one of the best warm-up DJ’s for Hedkandi we ever had!” Pav
