Born in Dublin, Ireland, raised gypsy style in southern Spain and constantly moving cities, Sian chose early to drop out of normal society,make music and DJ. Adhering more to the avantgarde way of life, he stands out as a little more bohemian than the average electronic figure.. a rare, flamboyant and eccentric new talent.
As one of the most promising upcoming acts in the techno scene today, Sian revels in his uniqueness. He has already been reworked and remixed by talent like Gui Boratto, Steve Bug, Efdemin, Minilogue or Pan-Pot and so early on in his career, has toured half the world. Rocking heaving crowds and bringing his trademark experimental DJing style to the masses via multiple outputs of explosive techno, fx and loops cut up and edited live. His tracks instantly caught the ear of everyone from Sasha, John Digweed, Carl Cox to Luciano, Richie Hawtin, Ricardo Villalobos, Loco Dice or Steve Bug and have shown how a genre busting raw talent crosses over stylistic boundaries. Plus his DJing performances at international contemporary clubs and festivals in Europe, to dates in North and South America, Australia and beyond. Memorable nights at pioneering clubs like Berghain, Secretsundaze, Tripod, Weekend, Hive, Nitsa etc have seen Sians marathon DJ sets bring real voodoo to the dancefloor.
With appearances on very select labels, his unusual DJing approach and his acclaimed output on his own techno imprint, Octopus, Sian is fast becoming recognized by peer and press alike as one to watch. From international radio like the BBC to Mags like DJMAG, IDJ, Mixmag, Raveline, XLR8, Groove, Resident Advisor etc the praise for his raw style and very exploratory label are unanimous. This young imprint is already getting praised by DJs like Carl Cox, Richie Hawtin, Sasha, Dubfire, Loco Dice, John Digweed, Damian Lazarus, M.A.N.D.Y. Whether conducting everlasting sweat soaked DJ sessions or creating timeless dance music, Sian is a truly diverse and original talent,at once chic and hedonistic,always intensely inventive...
Still shaking from some huge slabs of dancefloor energy with Exercise One and Jonas Kopp remixes on his own label "Octopus", Sian has been buried in the studio remixing for Bedrock, Trapez Records and is preparing 2 new releases for Soma.
He’s been all over DJing to frenzied mobs, running his own "Shake your bones" residency in Barcelona and is just about to start another USA tour.
Keep your eyes peeled for some serious techno workout action with his upcoming Oubliette EP, featured in this mix, with remixes from Norman Nodge and Staffan Linzatti.
