Sian

1
Classic modern techno is exactly what Sian and his label Octopus represent. When you have interests ranging from entomology, cosmology and marine biology, to the social impact of the rave generation, you tend to make unusual art. Sian stands out as a little more bohemian than the average electronic talent.

Born in Dublin, Ireland and raised in southern Spain, he chose early to drop out of normal society and engage in the extraordinary. Adhering more to the avant-garde side of club culture, his tracks show an otherworldly, slow and hypnotic slant on big speaker electronic music. Having quickly developed an oeuvre of work that appeared on stalwart labels like Soma, Pokerflat, Bedrock and Sci+Tec, he has also dropped applauded remixes for the likes of Guy J, Mauro Picotto and Gui Boratto. Not to mention being reworked along the way by talent like Steve Bug, Pan-Pot, Carlo Lio, Nicole Moudaber, Efdemin and Minilogue.

After eventually deciding to release exclusively on his own white hot, new Octopus Recordings label, with tracks constantly hitting Beatport top ten positions and gathering glowing reviews, the label has now become one of the top 5 selling Techno labels worldwide. Catching many major league artists on the way up with much attention from print magazines and web blogs to international radio shows. Both Sian and the labels' reputation for delivering huge slabs of peak time techno is snowballing.

His recent artist album, "Before Silence" is an inventive hybrid mix of original tracks and parts. Spanning 130 mins and comprising over 1013 individual clips mixed into one session, showing a bold step in studio experimentation. The project illustrates some achingly forward thinking new production techniques and features everyone from Carlo Lio to Terence Fixmer, remixing the vibrant singles.

Sian is regularly appearing at the worlds most respected clubs and festivals in Europe, Asia, Canada, Eastern Europe, South America, Australia and beyond. He brings voodoo to the dance floor every time at clubs like like Fabric,Weekend, Berghain, King King, Inox, The Loft, Lantern, Industrial Copera, Social Club, Arma 17, Secret Sundaze, The Pod and more! Schooling heaving crowds, Sian brings his trademark experimental DJing style to the masses via multiple outputs of explosive techno, combined with FX and loops cut on the fly.

Now also running his own nomadic "Octopus presents" label events, with guests like Josh Wink, Marco Bailey, Stacey Pullen, Anja Schneider, Damian Lazarus, Kenny Larkin, Nick Curly, Slam, etc. Octopus is now hosting sell out parties in Barcelona and beyond, with principal events at Sonar, ADE etc.

Whether conducting everlasting sweat soaked DJ sessions or creating timeless dance music, Sian is a truly diverse and original talent. At once chic and debonaire, always intensely inventive.
