Richard Beyon, the Montreal DJ who boasts several tracks reaching Beatport’s Top 10 Charts including “Close to You”, “Keep it Coming”, and “Keep Pushing”, has had an excellent start to 2014. Earlier this month he celebrated a milestone in his social media growth with a sixteen track collection of his favorite bootlegs.
He’ll be performing at AVALAND this week, supporting Morgan Page during day two of his Avalon Hollywood takeover.
Electro House Producer Lazy Rich last month released “Let’s Get Weird” which Dancing Astronaut expertly describes: “A break led by melodic chords provides the ideal amount of energy while the track builds momentum, before a relentless plateau provides the original mix’s focal point.”
Friday night at CONTROL, Lazy Rich will be supporting Morgan Page during his epic takeover of Avalon Hollywood.
Highly respected and always anxiously anticipated, Nom De Strip made a splash in the electronic music world last year when he released his Clouds EP’s along with a series of collaborations and remixes that have defined his unique sound. This distinction has only been furthered by his “I Can’t Believe” track which Ear Milk describes:
“Today’s track furthers his reputation as a genre-blending artist, as “I Can’t Believe” grows into a solid electro house tune that calls you to the dance floor. Gritty vocal refrains layer over continuous mids, all coupled with a swinging bassline, which combine to make an infectious soundscape that will fit in any high-energy set.”
Last year, Nom De Strip embarked on a collaboration that has earned praise from David Guetta, Nervo, and Kaskade. They got together with Congorock to create a track that released at the end of November and has caught on, in a big way. Do Androids Dance put it best when they described “Minerals”:
“This isn’t some massive drop fest; “Minerals” is all about the groove. It digs deep into the bounce and doesn’t come up for air. A stone groove established, it then just works its way around that bounce, giving you nothing but an infectious rhythm to live within.”
We’re gearing up for a huge weekend – Sean Tyas is back this weekend at AVALAND. As reported by the DJ List, he will be joining us for a Q&A on our Facebook page this Wednesday at 6pm PST. Be there!
A New York native now residing in Switzerland, Sean Tyas burst onto the scene in 2006 when Sander van Doorn selected him winner of the ‘Punk’d’ remix competition. This proved to be the start of Tyas emerging as one of the most talented and in demand producers in EDM today, having co-produced with Armin van Buuren, remixed the likes of Tiësto, Above & Beyond, and Dash Berlin; not to mention a myriad of #1 singles on Beatport’s Trance Top 100 chart over the years. He’s released on a range of leading labels including Armada Music, Anjunabeats, Black Hole Recordings, and with his very own Tytanium Recordings.
Tyas’ in demand sounds are backed by a genuine love for his music and a clear passion for his fans, as evident when watching his dynamic energy on stage when DJing at any event. His festival appearances read like an A-Z of the greatest shows on the planet, including Tomorrowland, A State Of Trance across Europe, Ultra Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival, Electric Zoo, plus leading international club brands that include Godskitchen, Gatecrasher, Ministry Of Sound, Judgement Sundays and Privilege in Ibiza.
While Sean’s name is one of the first that will forever come to mind as one of the ‘who’s who’ in the trance scene, he continues to evolving as an artist. Tyas is set to release new singles that incorporate his traditional trance roots with a touch of other subgenres, creating a fresh 2014 sound. Forthcoming releases include a single release on the legendary Black Hole Recordings, and collaborations with Joel Madden of Good Charlotte, Paul Van Dyk, and many more.
