Niall Roche.

Graduating in 2020, Niall has since established himself as a DJ/producer under the alias Joe Roche and has seen fast growth and success in his career to date.

While studying our Electronic Music and DJ Practice degree, Niall was performing gigs around Manchester, which is something that he has continued to pursue – landing regular residencies in some of the city’s most renowned venues. Niall has also played at festivals, including Parklife.

Niall also works as a freelance facilitator/project manager at Reform Radio, helps and online talent booking agency and runs his own event series/brand ‘Do As You Please’.

Spirit, for me, was a base with industry standard studios and live equipment close by, so I could usually get in where I wanted, when I wanted and have staff available when I needed help.
