Bookmark and Share

In his 15 years as one of the leading artists in electronic music, Australian songwriter, composer, record producer and DJ tyDi, has recorded five full-length albums, countless singles, remixes, and EPs that have topped global charts. On his new album - Collide, tyDi enlisted 2x GRAMMY award winning composer and seasoned vet Christopher Tin to help bring Collide to the masses. Best known for his composing and scoring work across the concert music, film and video game industries, Tin has won multiple awards and accolades: In 2011, his choral piece Baba Yetu from the video game Civilization IV became the first piece of video game music to ever win a Grammy Award, while his album Calling All Dawns took home a second Grammy for Best Classical Crossover Album that same year.

"To make my dream album, I needed someone experienced who was a king in the composing world," says tyDi of his collaboration with Tin. "This is the type of composition you can only get from an entire orchestra, and I owe so much to Christopher." For tyDi, it all now comes full circle on Collide, his most ambitious and most challenging project to date.
