SAT [7.2] – Sian, Technasia @ Exchange LA
618 South Spring Street, Los Angeles, CA 90014 [10pm-6am, 21+]
Sian – Classic modern techno is exactly what Sian and his label Octopus represent. When you have interests ranging from entomology, cosmology and marine biology, to the social impact of the rave generation, you tend to make unusual art. Sian stands out as a little more bohemian than the average electronic talent. Born in Dublin, Ireland and raised in southern Spain,he is based between Los Angeles and Southern France.Sian chose early to drop out of normal society and engage in the extraordinary. Adhering more to the avant-garde side of club culture, his tracks show an otherworldly, slow and hypnotic slant on big speaker electronic music. Having quickly developed an oeuvre of work that appeared on stalwart labels like Soma, Bedrock and Sci & Tec,before ultimately deciding to release exclusively on his own white hot, new Octopus Recordings label.With tracks constantly hitting Beatport top ten positions, the label has now become one of the top 5 selling Techno labels worldwide. Catching many major league artists on the way up with much attention from international Press and radio.Both Sian and the labels’ reputation for delivering huge slabs of peak time techno is snowballing fast.
