Infamous for delivering sweat-soaked, hypnotic performances, with each seminal release standing the test of time, Sian burns deep into the collective psyche of electronic music like hot black chrome. Adhering more to the avant-garde side of club culture, both his, and the label’s output possess an otherworldly, driving and ecstatic atmosphere. Instantly recognizable, a powerhouse right on the razors edge, with a new-school attitude toward both sound and design aesthetics. Classic modern techno is what Sian and his label, Octopus, truly represent.
Born in Ireland, raised in Spain, and now calling the sprawling, sun-drenched metropolis of Los Angeles his beloved home. Sian’s DJ Sets and Live shows exhibit a unique, focused higher power. Selecting music from his vast catalogue, and warping it beyond belief through unusual hardware and software signal paths. Acidic, energetic, pulsating, and totally adventurous in his approach, Sian is consistently delivering pounding performances on stage, to euphoric, heaving masses. His touring adventures have taken him around the globe non-stop since the first single, with clubs and festivals alike experiencing his unmistakeable vibrant sound firsthand, on packed dance-floors worldwide.
His seminal label Octopus, has constantly broke all the rules and remained hyped-up in the charts, radio and press, for almost a decade. With releases and remixes from luminaries such as Nicole Moudaber, Gregor Tresher, Jay Lumen, Anna, Marc Houle, DVS1, Victor Ruiz, Pig & Dan, Julian Jeweil, Slam, Gui Boratto, Carlo Lio, Oliver Huntemann, and many more, it now also includes a steadily growing core roster of fresh faces. Fearlessly crossing genre lines and nurturing true artistic talent over everything else, the label is consistently breaking the next wave of exciting talent.
Remaining true to his roots in experimental nightlife, Sian and Octopus have created a ruthlessly underground party concept, the Octopus Warehouse series. Where he and very special guests conduct memorable sweat-soaked events, with custom sound and visuals pushed to their upper limits, including an accompanying white label release series.
Always inventive, raw and uncompromising in his creative process, Sian continues to demonstrate complete command over his audience, creating electrifying soundscapes with each and every step into the strobe lit haze.
