Sian’s has shown his techno mastery with releases on BEDROCK, Pokerflat, SOMA and has gone on to create a label of his own, Octopus Recordings.Through Octopus Recordings, he’s created an underground party concept named Octopus Warehouse that honors his experimental roots. Recently, he brought a full house to the Pink Tent at HARD Summer with his second project AMOK with Will Clarke. Sian has gotten the attention of DEADMAU5 and will be joining as support on the highly anticipated The Cube V3 tour.
