TTyson in a nutshell
TTyson is a techno producer, live performer and DJ. He has released tracks on several obscure techno labels that you've probably never heard of. TTYson currently lives in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
As long as he can remember, TTyson has been obsessed by music. Born and bred in a quaint little Dutch village called Rotterdam, young TTyson started his musical journey with piano lessons. Practicing however proved too much of an effort for the ungrateful little bastard. Still, he would later thank his parents for putting him through this hardship.
Right around the time when his voice broke, TTyson decided to pick up the electric guitar and play Nineties grunge songs (this occurred, unsurprisingly, during the Nineties). After mastering most of the chord progressions that Kurt Cobain had come up with during his short life, he took to producing music with a computer.
Collaborating with similarly foul smelling high school youths, he produced tracks that are best described as the ugly bastard children of Massive Attack and the Fun Lovin' Criminals with some Wu Tang Clan vocals thrown in for good measure.
After composing several of these abominations and enduring multiple on stage embarrassments he quit music to pursue a professional degree. His years at university were spent mostly under the influence of alcohol although it has been said that he did manage to produce some music during this inebriated era.
After more than overstaying his welcome at university, TTyson eventually was forced to take a real job. However, the harsh reality of partaking in the rat race quickly hit home. This was so depressing that he soon took up making music again in order to find comfort for his soul.
Having previously abused the genres of alternative rock and triphop, TTYson set his sights on electronic dance music, which he vaguely remembered enjoying whenever he found himself in a club. (TTyson is rumoured to sport several surprisingly supple dance moves despite looking like the archetypical "clumsy white male")
After briefly exploring the horrors that are electro house (nowadays referred to as "EDM") and dubstep, TTyson found a comfortable home in the lap of the mother of all electronic dance music: techno.
His particular brand of rudimentary, thumping beats, stoic synth warbles and mostly unintelligible vocal snippets is inspired by greats such as Pig&Dan, Adam Beyer, Stephan Hinz and Nicole Moudaber to name a few.
His latest endeavour is developing a live techno performance setup, in an attempt to achieve a more organic and individual sound, both in his productions and live shows.
