Sean Tyas says he will be play “a lot of new material” on the Earthcore 2016 tour.
Known for his ponderous discography of trance masterpieces, top-tier melodies and all-round musical goodness, Sean Tyas will provide an incredible experience at ‘Earthcore 2016‘ held at Pyalong, Victoria between 24-28 November and the two ‘Earthcore in the Park’ events held in Sydney on Saturday 26th November and Perth on Sunday 27th November.
Other DJs scheduled to perform include Bryan Kearney, John 00 Fleming, Will Atkinson, Vini Vici, Coming Soon!!! and many more.
We caught up with the Trance hero to talk all things Trance, Earthcore and his latest hit ‘Swimming In Acid’.
Returning to Australia this November for ‘Earthcore 2016’ and the ‘Earthcore in the Park’ events, how excited are you to be part of such a massive festival? What can fans expect from your sets?
A lot of new material I’ve been working on that I guess you’d categorise in the “in-your-face” end of Tech-Trance plus some equally edgy Psy that I’m making a lot of. It is this fusion that I want to bring to these festivals – something that sites between Tech and Psy.
What do you love most about the Aussie crowd?
Australia has always felt like a home away from home for me. Not just because of the cultural or language or humour similarities – there’s something deeper in there. I guess the passion, the energy and the musical education are the 3 things I love best about playing to you guys down under.
Recently reaching #1 with your latest hit ‘Swimming In Acid’, where do you find inspiration to produce such mind-blowing tunes?
The main elements of this track were spun out of sound design sessions (days where I would literally not make music in the studio, but rather just program sounds on various synths and save them for future use). I think once i created the patch and processing chain for the main “acid”, it was easy to finally finish.
What does Trance mean to you?
I guess Trance to me just means a driving, pulsating, synth-heavy and melodic journey of music created and intended to get you to feel as much as it is to dance. Though this is rather a broad sense and that can easily said about a lot of genres, so let me narrow it down in my particular case: somewhere in that bpm range of 132-144 , basslines to compliment and dance with the kick drum, and speaking of the kick drum – the kick would need to be quite powerful and dominant. I enjoy a nice variety of highly resonant sounds which highlight filter movement and are brought out even further by certain distortions… I could probably go on forever but I guess you catch my drift.
Do you have any words for all your Aussie fans?
See you in November! It’s going to be quite the romp through these cities, but I will be ready and I’m damn sure you all will be too.
