VMM The Label - Sean Tyas & Tytanium Recordings
From Switzerland, throughout Europe, all over North America and picked up by people in Argentina, China, Brazil and Australia there is a sound transmitting on airwaves that has been rousing clubbers appetite for the dancefloor over the last 2 years. Now approaching the 100th episode with his Tytanium Sessions radio, show host and mixer Sean Tyas, has decided to cut a path from the airwaves straight to the dancefloor with a series of exclusive parties to celebrate his shows coming of age.
Also long been in Sean Tyas mindset with now the 100th episode of Tytanium Sessions, Sean felt the timing was right to extend his Tytanium clubbing imprint that extra inch. So attempting to reshape a new slicker side to the trance mould, Sean has decided to open a new avenue in the production world and create his own label called “Tytanium Recordings”. With an aim to evolve his own Tytanium sound through the label, he also plans to showboat a broader, fresher sound from his respective scene with new music by established and emerging artists he supports both on his show and in his DJ sets.
A legion of the emerging big name DJ, Sean Tyas is fully armed and ready to usher in the new era of real trance music so we speak to him here at the VMM about his new imprint and what’s the future for the Tyas empire.
Hi Sean great to speak to you again here in the VMM and great news about the Tytanium Sessions gig’s and also the new lable!
Sean Tyas: Thank you
VMM Q: Sean can you tell the VMM why you wanted to finally launch your own imprint called Tytanium Recordings?
Sean Tyas: I am looking to further expand the Tytanium concept and brand, and doing it by creating a means to release tracks on a schedule as I see fit is the next logical progression really.
VMM Q: The VMM would like to ask why did you decide to name the label after the radio show and how did you come up with the Tytanium name what does the name mean to you Sean?
Sean Tyas: I just actually like the word Titanium, how it’s a near-unbreakable material, and that it’s so light, symbolic of how I like tracks: Tough but very animated and “light on their feet”. Then I just swap the “I” with a “y” to be cute with the spelling.
VMM Q: Can you tell the VMM about some of the artists that you have currently signing to your Tytanium Recordings imprint?
Sean Tyas: I am trying to find people that share the same ideals, some familiar and some new faces, Corderoy would be one of the familiar ones, and these new guys Phunpark from Argentina would be one of the tremendously talented “new” faces.
VMM Q: The VMM would like you Sean which producers do you think are shaking the dance music industry at the moment?
Sean Tyas: I actually don’t know, I am trying to keep my own eyes focused and not get distracted really. When I first came to Europe in 2004, I was a studio slave for almost a year, and the guy I was working for would come running into the studio each week with the new Dance Chart, and say “Sean, we must make this”, pointing to the number 1 record each week. That whole mentality is an absolute joke. I’ll just make, play, and release the music I really love, and when people like it, it’s just a real bonus.
VMM Q: For all who are to discover your Tytanium Recordings for the first time can you describe Sean in a few words what the Tytanium sound is and what genres would you like to see fitting your labels imprint the best in the future?
Sean Tyas: Anything from Trance to tech trance to electro. But the 2 keys of this label are 1) powerful tracks and 2) great melodies & harmonies. Or preferably BOTH.
VMM Q: Can you tell the VMM what releases do you have planned to come out in the coming months on the dynamic Tytanium Recordings?
Sean Tyas: Tytanium Recordings will be the launch point of my album and its singles, so that is the main focus, but in between all of those you will hear some new artists, usually backed with a remix by me or whoever I think can complement the original in a purposeful and musical way.
VMM Q: Where will we best buy your labels releases from Tytanium Recordings and do you have a website where we can find out all about the label and the releases?
Sean Tyas: If you head over to Beatport you can currently buy the new single ‘By the Way’, as well as all future tracks as and when they are released. There’s no separate Tytanium site just yet but this will be up and live very soon. But for now anyone wanting more information relating to Tytanium, where it’s the show or label, can check out my artist website www.seantyasmusic.com
VMM Q: Can you tell the VMM what the Vibe from the International DJ arena for you launching your own imprint so far Sean?
Sean Tyas: I think a few people expected me to kick start a project like this sooner because it is no secret that its been a goal of mine to have a label, but I wanted to wait till the right time before launching it. I’m proud to say that so far the feedback has been really positive, I’ve a few interesting releases to put through the label and the initial response on this has been great.
VMM Q: You have just celebrated your 100th show for your amazing Tytanium Sessions Sean and have just launched some shows to celebrate this mile stone so will you be taking the Tytanium brand around the globe in the coming months what’s your plans?
Sean Tyas: There’ll definitely be more events around the Tytanium brand in the future but nothing confirmed so far. Because of my American roots I wanted to those100th episode shows to start in North America, with New York being the climax for the whole tour. It was a fantastic tour and I’m really grateful to all the DJs and clubbers who made the whole thing so memorable. I don’t think I’ve been that nervous before a show since my first few gigs.
VMM Q: Finally the VMM would like to know where can dj producers send any unsigned material for you’re Tytanium Recordings A&R team?
Sean Tyas: They can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org but I ask that those sending tracks please don’t use downloader sites where we have to wait for the track to download. Myself and my A&R guy prefer to receive links for tracks where we can listen to them instantly and download if suitable – this is a good tip when sending to other DJs too because many of us don’t have the time to wait for numerous downloads to complete, so it’s more likely your track will get heard if a DJ can just instantly listen to it after clicking the link.
The VMM thanks Sean Tyas for taking time out to speak to the VMM and we wish him great! Success with his new imprint Tytanium Recordings.
Thank you! Really appreciate your wishes and support. See you soon
