Fearlessly blending raw, sulphuric, warehouse schooling with apocalyptic sci-fi production, Sian’s Concentrate EP revs the engine mercilessly with these new rave weapons.
Techno tastemaker Sian owns Octopus Recordings and has previously released on acclaimed labels like Pokerflat, Soma and Bedrock, among others. Born of his undying admiration for overdriven drum machine circuits and petrol dipped synth lines, with this release he label head man goes heavier and more feverish than ever before.
Born in Ireland, raised in Spain, and now calling the sprawling, sun-drenched metropolis of Los Angeles his beloved home, Sian’s DJ Sets and Live shows exhibit a unique, focused higher power. Selecting music from his vast catalogue, and warping it beyond belief through unusual hardware and software signal paths. Acidic, energetic, pulsating, and totally adventurous in his approach, Sian is consistently delivering pounding performances on stage, to euphoric, heaving masses. His touring adventures have taken him around the globe non-stop since the first single, with clubs and festivals alike experiencing his unmistakeable vibrant sound firsthand, on packed dance-floors worldwide.
His label Octopus, has constantly broke all the rules and remained hyped-up in the charts, radio and press, for almost a decade. With releases and remixes from luminaries such as Nicole Moudaber, Gregor Tresher, Jay Lumen, Anna, Marc Houle, DVS1, Victor Ruiz, Pig & Dan, Julian Jeweil, Slam, Gui Boratto, Carlo Lio, Oliver Huntemann, and many more, it now also includes a steadily growing core roster of fresh faces. Fearlessly crossing genre lines and nurturing true artistic talent over everything else, the label is consistently breaking the next wave of exciting talent.
Remaining true to his roots in experimental nightlife, Sian and Octopus have created a ruthlessly underground party concept, the Octopus Warehouse series. Where he and very special guests conduct memorable sweat-soaked events, with custom sound and visuals pushed to their upper limits, including an accompanying white label release series. Sian’s Concentrate EP makes for proper warehouse vibes.
Always inventive, raw and uncompromising in his creative process, Sian continues to demonstrate complete command over his audience, creating electrifying soundscapes with each and every step into the strobe-lit haze.
