A proud New Yorker now living in Switzerland, Sean Tyas burst onto the scene in 2006, after Sander van Doorn selected him as the winner of the “Punk’d” remix contest. Shortly after releasing his debut single and first #1 record (Lift), Mixmag & Beatport named him “Best New DJ” and “One To Watch,” marking the beginning of Tyas’ journey to becoming one of the most celebrated names in trance music. Throughout his 8 year career, he’s racked up a multitude of landmark achievements, including a much lauded BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix to his credit—a rare feat by any trance artist.
His discography is filled with 5 mix compilations and an impressive amount of #1 hits, such as his unforgettable remix of Dash Berlin and Emma Hewitt’s “Waiting,” and his ground breaking single “Seven Weeks,” which spent an astounding 12 weeks at #1. Often known for turning a great track into a monster hit of ‘tytanic’ proportions, his remix credits include reworks for early Tiësto, Above & Beyond, Dash Berlin, Lange, Gareth Emery, and a co-production (Intricacy) with Armin van Buuren to name a few.
Tyas’ 5 recent consecutive high rankings within the highly coveted DJ Mag Top 100 poll are a result of his dynamic DJ performances at some of the best clubs and festivals in the world, including Tomorrowland, A State Of Trance, Ultra Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival, Electric Zoo, Godskitchen, Gatecrasher, Ministry Of Sound, Judgement Sundays, Digital Society, Zouk Singapore, Beyond Wonderland, Pacha NYC, Avalon Hollywood, Exchange LA, Webster Hall NYC, Privilege Ibiza, and many more.
Due in part to the recent release of his smashing hit singles “Lose My Logic” and “Now You See,” Tyas has easily become one of the most highly publicized artists within his genre. The last 3 months of 2013 alone saw Tyas garner over 220 assorted interviews, live show reviews, spotlight features, and track reviews featured by top music publications including Mixmag, VIBE, EARMILK, LessThan3, and the IDMA nominated, elektro Magazine. Both “Lose My Logic” and “Now You See” became his best charting singles within the last 3 years, with the latter reaching #2 and dominating the Top 5 for 6 consecutive weeks.
Tyas' steady trek to global dominance continues as evidenced by the recent signing of a high profile multi-album deal with Black Hole Recordings, the original label home of industry greats Tiësto, BT, and Ferry Corsten. His well-overdue debut album is slated for joint release by Black Hole Recordings and his own imprint, Tytanium Recordings, in mid-2015.
With esteemed music webzine elektro Magazine recently naming 2014 “The Year of the Tytan,” it’s evident the best is yet to come for Sean Tyas; we’ve only just witnessed the beginning.
