When most of us were contemplating which direction to go in life, a 21 years young DJ Producer firmly etched his worth in stone in the wonderful world of electronic dance music in such a way most can dream of in their entire career. Ranked the #1 DJ in Australia, productions signed to the #1 DJ in the world Armin Van Buuren’s record label, Armada and being play listed by artists such as Above & Beyond, Sander Kleinenberg, Andy Moor and Markus Schulz has become all in a days work for Tyson Illingworth. But this is the name you will only read in the credits attached as we know him as something else for these reasons;
Tidy productions, very tidy live performances; to us - “tyDi” by name…
“tyDi”, AKA – Tyson Illingworth originally reigns from the appropriately named Sunshine Coast where at a very early age he developed a desirable passion for music. Although classically trained, a strong interest for electronic music forced an attraction to the dance world where at the early age of fifteen all hands where on decks when the alias of “tyDi” was born. Who would have known, only one year later the name would appear on bills such as ‘Slinky’ and ‘Godskitchen’ with residencies at club nights around the country?
This desire would soon see him packing his bags for the big smoke with a vision for Modern Music technology firmly in grasp and with Brisbane as his new home; it was n’t long before Tyson was invited to study at the prestigious Conservatorium of Music.
