VISION SKY ROOM
| SEAN TYAS & SIMON PATTERSON |
Sean Tyas - New York native, Switzerland based DJ/Producer Sean Tyas is something of a leading light in European trance. Currently ranked #46 in DJ Magazine"s Top 100 DJ Poll 2009, he was also earmarked by BBC Radio 1"s Pete Tong as a "buzzword in trance circles" head of his debut Essential Mix for the station back in February 2009 and hooked by industry power house Beatport has a "One to watch in 2009", leaving little surprise that 2009 went down as undoubtedly his biggest period to date. Having cut out his niche in the highly competitive production arena to create countless hit tracks, remixes and bootlegs, Sean brings to the dancefloor a mix of melodic harmony, driving groove and cutting edge production techniques.
The distinctive Sean Tyas sound has captured the imagination of the trance community with the highest echelons of the trance elite such as Armin van Buuren, Paul van Dyk, Judge Jules, Ferry Corsten, Sander van Doorn and Above & Beyond amongst the heavyweight playlist support. Sean also has legions of fans at grass roots level, from message boards, budding DJs and radio listeners, a fact proven by his meteoric rise up the ranks of popular polls such as the DJ Magazine Top 100 and TranceAddict.com, as well as being awarded 'Best New Face' winner at the recent Trance Awards as well as #3 Best Remixer and #5 Best Producer, with Mixmag also awarding him #8 in their 'Best New DJs' at the end of 2007.
Despite all this activity he has still found time to broadcast his own weekly radio show Tytanium sessions and for 2010 will be launching his own label imprint of the same name. 2010 will also see Sean work on his first artist album project, release a curve-ball techno track on Full Tilt records and undertake in remix work for artists such as Dash Berlin, on top of heavy tour throughout Asia, Australia and the Americas, all of which suggests that the world of Tyas looks exceedingly bright for 2010.
Simon Patterson - Currently ranked #28 in the DJ Magazine Top 100 DJ Poll 2010, Simon Patterson is an artist who has confirmed his elevation into the trance super-league with a series of white-hot productions and jaw dropping dj performances.
Simon's first solo offering was the well received ‘F-16’ but followed it up with the now legendary club smash ‘Bulldozer’ which brought him to the attention of every trance fan the world over. Simon has to-date racked up an unprecedented 10 consecutive #1’s on Beatport (also nominated for Best Trance Track at the Beatport Music Awards 2010 for ‘Miss You’). Little wonder then that releases such as ‘Thump’ and ‘Somethin’s Up’ (collaboration with Sean Tyas) continue to tear up playlists around the world. His current offering ‘Taxi’ released on Spinnin' Records in April is the latest of his chart topping productions. With follow up releases ‘Mood Swing’ and ‘Back Stab’, Simon continues to produce music of the very highest standard.
With Radio 1’s Judge Jules, Tiesto, Armin van Buuren, Paul van Dyk, Ferry Corsten and Sander van Doorn amongst his most loyal supporters, it is easy to see why leading publications such as DJ Magazine, Mixmag, Notion and Tilllate Magazine are all tipping him for even greater things....
Simon notched up his first Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1 at the end of 2009, whilst this year has already seen him mix and compile a mix album for Technoclub Germany, as well as being one of the first in line to mix one of Gatecrashers forthcoming digital compilations. With the summer festival and Ibiza season already shaping up to be another crazy period, Simon has firmly cemented himself as one of the scenes most prominent and respected DJ and producers
