Short Bio:

As a double Beatport #1 act and remixer, the boss of two labels and a successful dance-pop songwriter on the side, Aussie export Stu Tyson has focused on taking the live/DJ crossover to a new level. His free-flowing sets open with live jamming on the Native Instruments Maschine sampler, swapping freely from live performance to DJing and back again. With hundreds of gigs checked off on his agenda, from the coolest clubs to the biggest festival stages, Bass Kleph has crafted the art of DJing and playing live, developing his own style.

As Bass Kleph says, “I love it. I love the journey, because there’s always something new coming in music, in DJing, with songwriting. If I won ten million dollars in the lotto tomorrow, I’d still keep playing live and DJing and writing music — what else is this much fun?”
