It just warms our hearts to see Sean Tyas climibing in the world rankings. He entered the DJ Mag top 100 at 54 in 2008, climbed to 45 in 2009, and this year, with all the touring he’s done, it’s almost scary to think where he’s headed.
A local act from NYC, Sean relocated to Switzerland a few years ago in order to better hone his skills as a trance DJ. Apparently it worked! With productions like ‘Lift,’ and the recent ‘Seven Weeks,’ as well as ridiculous remixes of ‘Shipwrecked,’ and Tiesto’s ‘Suburban Train,’ Sean Tyas has established himself as a true savant when it comes to trance production.
2010 sees Sean heading up his new Tytanium imprint and working on his first artist-album. He has also been touring like madman doing Trance Energy gigs everywhere. The world knows Sean Tyas intimately, it’s time we did too.
Des McMahon has been making serious waves in the past year. His releases on Kubik, Stampgevaar and CGI garnered praise from the likes of John Askew, Tom Colontionio, Mark Sherry, Adam Foley and Will Atkinson. His recent “Rainmaker/Crack the Whip” EP on Discover Records is currently supported by John O’Callaghan, Simon Patterson, Aly & Fila, Tyas, Askew, Colontonio and more. “Rainmaker” is destroying clubs in Ibiza as we speak! The Philly native and rising junior at American University will bring a mix of funky techno, lush progressive and driving trance to the big room at Fur!
