We caught up for a chat with New York trance DJ/Producer Sean Tyas ahead of the event.
You had a storming summer with Gatecrasher in Ibiza last year, are you looking forward to working with the brand again?
Of course, how could anyone not? The parties are always mental and it's such a globally recognised brand!
You’re ranked 72nd in the DJ Mag top 100 DJ list. How do you feel about being recognised as a massively successful DJ?
Proud I guess? I don't know, success is not so important to me as simple consistency. In the studio, first and foremost, I just want to keep improving and learning.
You’re about to go round Europe on tour, where are you most excited about visiting?
Actually I'm thrilled to be going to play at two festivals in particular that I've yet to play at: Tomorrowland and Nature One... And to be able to do them both in the same summer, that's definitely sweet!
Your Tytanium Sessions radio show (available on Soundcloud and iTunes) has been hugely successful and popular with fans around the world. How do you think these regular sessions have helped your live performances?
Judging the feedback I get from the weekly episodes and which tracks seem to stir people up, can help "make or break" that moment when I decide if a track makes it into my live set. This saves me from having to debate if it will work or not - I basically already know!
Your music regularly appears on Armin Van Buuren’s “A State of Trance” and Above and Beyond’s “Trance around the World”. Are you a big fan of both shows?
Any show that helps push new music is important, and of course I'm a huge fan of that.
You’ve recently collaborated with Giuseppe Ottaviani on a track called 'Arcobaleno' which will be released in May. What can fans expect from the track?
I think we really reached back and touched on the famous "Nu NRG" roots of Giuseppe with this one, and fans definitely seem to appreciate that old school vibe of it. It was just a pleasure to work with the trance maestro himself. Melodically, this guy does no wrong!
What can we expect from you GC set?
Beautiful melodies, disgustingly dirty ass basslines, driving acid lines, chunky kick drums... take your pick - they're all on the menu and more!
