Currently residing in the North East, UK, Rory has been DJing for over fifteen years. His early influences were the U.S. West coast House scene, in particular the early Naked Music vibe, Dubtribe Sound System, Miguel Migs, Rasoul, Andy Caldwell, JT Donaldson & Lance Desardi. More of Rory’s influences include the likes of Calum Walker, Brendan Costigane, Jimpster, Charles Webster, Vincenzo, DJ Ino, Seph, Steven Garcia, Schmoov and Crazy P, you can see it’s an eclectic bag.
This distinctive sound and its influence is obvious when you hear Rory work a crowd in that individual and unique way that he has made his own by giving you that characteristic Cochrane deep house therapy couch. Rory has performed at some of the North East’s most prestigious and loved venues over the years, joints such as Stereo Bar, Tokyo Bar, To The Manor Born, The Loveboat, The Purple Onion, Cosmic Ballroom, Distrikt Bar and The Faversham down in Leeds to name a few…
His passion for Deep House music makes his sound very current. Rory is now running quality labels such as Deep Site Digital and Deep Site Vinylized along with Croatian DJ/producer and good friend Tom Krizic (DJ Funtom). Rory is also working on some interesting production projects of his own, which have meant remixes and a sweet original track with vocalist Sanna Hartfield ‘Focus’ on Addex’ sister label Limitation Music. Catch other remixes on labels Oh! Stockholm, Deep Stitched, South Africa, The Purr Music as well as Deep Site.
Over the last couple of years Rory has played in Croatia and Sao Paulo, Brazil, more action during summer 2016 saw Rory perform in South Africa for the Deep Stitched nights, followed by gracing last years Goldmine Room at SSW6, as well as a couple of dates in Ibiza during late summer. With a planned return to Sao Paulo scheduled for the end of the year for a session at the world famous ‘D-Edge’, things are looking bright.
