When you have interests ranging from entomology, cosmology and marine biology, to the social impact of the rave generation, you tend to make unusual art. Sian stands out as a little more bohemian than the average electronic talent.
Born in Dublin, Ireland, raised in southern Spain, he chose early to drop out of normal society and engage in the extraordinary. Adhering more to the avant-garde side of the club culture, his tracks show an otherworldly, slow and hypnotic slant on techno. Quickly developing an oeuvre of work that has appeared on Bedrock, Sci&Tec, Soma Poker Flat, plus his own white hot new Octopus label. His music regularly hits Beatport top ten positions and gathers glowing reviews and DJ support alike. From mags and blogs to international radio shows, his reputation for delivering huge slabs of peak time techno is snowballing. Reworked and remixed by talent like Steve Bug, Carlo Lio, Pan-Pot, Secret Cinema, Ramon Tapia, Alan Fitzpatrick, Efdemin, Minilogue etc along the way, he has also personally dropped super big mixes for the likes of Guy J and Gui Boratto.
Whether conducting everlasting sweat soaked DJ sessions or creating timeless dance music, Sian is a truly diverse and original talented, at once chic and debonair, always intensely inventive.

Since then, he has become an established DJ and has regular performances together with renowned DJs, not only in Kiesgrube, but also in the former Tribehouse, as well as events from “Desolat”, Loco Dice’s label.
