Episode 9: Interview with Tydi! Australian DJ, songwriter, and producer tyDi is a conservatory-trained musician whose eclectic trance and house tracks have earned him a globally dominant profile. Born Tyson Illingworth in Mooloolaba, Australia in 1987, tyDi first became drawn to trance and other types of techno in his early teens. Although he played drums while in high school, he eventually procured a set of DJ turntables and by age 16 won first prize at the Brisbane DJ Wars. After high school, tyDi relocated to Brisbane, where he earned his Bachelor of Music Technology from Queensland Conservatorium of Music. While at school, tyDi still found time to perform, building a loyal following with his regular appearances at the Brisbane nightclub The Family. In 2008 he maximized this attention by becoming the youngest artist ever to win the InTheMix Top 50 DJs in Australia contest.
After graduating conservatory in 2009, tyDi released his debut album, Look Closer, which rose to the number two slot on the Australian dance chart. Two years later he returned with his sophomore album, Shooting Stars, which hit number one on the dance charts in Australia, Canada, and the U.K. and showcased collaborations with several vocalists including Tania Zygar, Brianna Holan, and Audrey Gallagher. In 2012 he curated the dance mix compilation album Global Soundsystem 2012: California, and the following year he delivered a compilation of his own chillout, non-dance-oriented material, Hotel Room.

Episode 7: Interview with 99 Souls and hear their Breakout Song, The Girl is Mine! Their faces were obscured on the cover of their breakthrough 2015 hit, but dance production duo 99 Souls identified as “1 jazz kid” and “1 hip hop baby” from the U.K. They evidently had a soft spot for Brandy and Monica’s 1998 duet “The Boy Is Mine” and Destiny’s Child’s 2005 single “Girl,” as they applied a sample of the latter and had Brandy re-record a portion of the former for “The Girl Is Mine.” The pop-oriented house track, released on Resilience and eventually licensed by Sony, earned early support from BBC Radio 1 DJ Pete Tong. Months later, it peaked at number 15 on the U.K. pop chart. ~ Andy KellmanPost Views: 479
