New York’s Sean Tyas burst onto the scene in 2006 after releasing his debut single “Lift” on Discover Records, which immediately hit #1 on Beatport—a great start and a sign of things to come shortly after Sander van Doorn selected him as the winner of the “Punk’d” remix contest. Around the same time, Mixmag & Beatport named Sean “Best New DJ” and “One to Watch,” marking the beginning of a rapid rise to fame within the cooler ranks of the trance fraternity.
What followed was a consistent flow of #1 hit records (including his unforgettable remix of Dash Berlin and Emma Hewitt’s “Waiting,” and his groundbreaking single “Seven Weeks,” which spent an astounding 12 weeks at #1 on Beatport), an Essential Mix on the legendary BBC Radio 1, multiple compilations and a diary racked with sell-out shows around the world.
Having remixed for the likes of Tiësto, Above & Beyond, Dash Berlin and Gareth Emery—as well as co-produced with Armin van Buuren, Simon Patterson and many more of the scene’s elite—Sean’s discography is a testament to his abilities in the studio, where he is renowned for turning great tracks into monster hits.
Several recent high rankings within the highly coveted DJ Mag Top 100 poll also give an indication of his reach and respect on the DJ circuit, where his energetic and dynamic sets have seen him play the majority of the world’s best clubs and festivals, including Tomorrowland, A State of Trance, Ultra Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival, Electric Zoo, Godskitchen, Gatecrasher, Ministry of Sound, Zouk Singapore, Beyond Wonderland, Pacha NYC, Avalon Hollywood, Exchange LA, Privilege Ibiza, and many more.
Google Sean Tyas, and you will see an ejaculation of recent high-profile press coverage from Mixmag, VIBE, EARMILK, LessThan3, and the IDMA-nominated Elektro Magazine, to name but a few.
