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,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 techno.Quickly developing an oeuvre of work that has appeared on Bedrock,Sci&Tec,Soma Pokerflat,plus his own white hot new Octopus Recordings label,his tracks have gathered Beatport top ten positions and glowing reviews alike.From mags and blogs to international radio shows,his reputation for delivering huge slabs of peak time techno is snowballing.Reworked and remixed by talent like Steve Bug,Pan-Pot,Carlo Lio,Nicole Moudaber,Efdemin,Minilogue along the way,he has also dropped super big mixes for the likes of Guy J,Mauro Picotto and Gui Boratto.

Having already toured half the world,schooling heaving crowds and bringing his trademark experimental DJ-ing style to the masses via multiple outputs of explosive techno,combined with fx and loops cut on the fly,his DJ sets at international clubs and festivals in Europe,USA,Canada,Eastern Europe,South America,Australia and beyond,have seen him bring real voodoo to the dancefloor every time at clubs like Fabric,Avalon,Weekend,Berghain,King King,The Endup,The Loft,Industrial Copera,Social Club,Blackmarket Membership,Arma 17,Secret Sundaze,The Pod etc.Also running his own nomadic „Octopus presents“ events,with guests like Josh Wink,Anja Schneider,Damian Lazarus,Nick Curly and Secretsundaze etc rolling out the emerging clubnights warehouse aesthetics in Barcelona and Dublin.

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,will show a bold step in studio experimentation.The project illustrates some achingly smart new production techniques and features everyone from Carlo Lio to Terence Fixmer,remixing the vibrant singles. His proudest undertaking yet,Sian’s own new techno imprint,Octopus recordings,is now recognized by peer and press alike as one to watch.Praised for its feverish tracks and raw sound,it has kickstarted a growing plethora of main room stompers and left field underground bombs,regularly hitting the Beatport top ten including the number one spot.With a handpicked roster of the freshest talent and remixes from esteemed names like Nicole Moudaber.Mauro Picotto,Gregor Tresher,Carlo Lio,Marco Bailey,Ramon Tapia,DVS1,Joel Mull,Terence Fixmer,Ripperton,Gui Boratto,and bright new talent like Calculus,Intern,Reilloc and Mr. Bizz,the young imprint is already making loud noise.
