A proud New Yorker now living in Switzerland, Sean Tyas burst onto the scene in 2006, after Sander van Doorn selected him as the winner of the “Punk’d” remix contest. Shortly after releasing his debut single and first #1 record (Lift), Mixmag & Beatport named him “Best New DJ” and “One To Watch,” marking the beginning of Tyas’ journey to becoming one of the most celebrated names in trance music. Throughout his 8-year career, he’s racked up a multitude of landmark achievements, including a much lauded BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix to his credit—a rare feat by any trance artist. His discography is filled with 5 mix compilations and an impressive amount of #1 hits, such as his unforgettable remix of Dash Berlin and Emma Hewitt’s “Waiting,” and his ground breaking single “Seven Weeks,” which spent an astounding 12 weeks at #1. Often known for turning a great track into a monster hit of ‘tytanic’ proportions, his remix credits include reworks for early Tiësto, Above & Beyond, Dash Berlin, Lange, Gareth Emery, and a co-production (Intricacy) with Armin van Buuren to name a few.

Tyas’ 5 recent consecutive high rankings within the highly coveted DJ Mag Top 100 poll are a result of his dynamic DJ performances at some of the best clubs and festivals in the world, including Tomorrowland, A State Of Trance, Ultra Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival, Electric Zoo, Godskitchen, Gatecrasher, Ministry Of Sound, Judgement Sundays, Digital Society, Zouk Singapore, Beyond Wonderland, Pacha NYC, Avalon Hollywood, Exchange LA, Webster Hall NYC, Privilege Ibiza, and many more.

In 2013, Sean saw the release of his two biggest singles since 2011, “Lose My Logic” and “Now You See.” The latter reached #2 yet dominated the Top 5 of the Beatport trance chart for 6 consecutive weeks.

In 2014, Sean signed a highly publicized, exclusive multi-album deal with iconic dance music label, Black Hole Recordings. His debut LP is scheduled for a 2015 release on Black Hole Recordings.
