Watch a live performance by TRITONAL and you’ll understand what all the hype is about. After making a name for themselves as the up-and-comers to watch, the American production and DJ duo consisting of Chad Cisneros and Dave Reed have firmly situated themselves as one of the most electrifying acts in the international EDM scene. Their zest for life and music is apparent to anyone who’s witnessed them in person or through their speakers and is just one reason why they resonate intensely with their loyal followers, “Tritonians.”
Recently earning a spot on MTV Clubland’s “10 Artists to Watch in 2013″ list and landing at #65 on DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs of 2012, Tritonal continue to launch track after track on to the Beatport charts and ignite dance floors around the world with their energetic and unforgettable sets. Their debut artist album “Piercing the Quiet” produced eight top 20 Beatport singles, including five that held the #1 position on the trance chart for weeks at a time. In September 2012, they released the follow-up “Piercing The Quiet Remixed,” which landed in the top 5 on the iTunes dance albums chart. Throughout 2013, Tritonal will release a 3 EP series entitled “Metamorphic,” with the first dropping on March 25.
Such a rapid ascent into the forefront of an ever-changing dance music industry might intimidate even the most seasoned professionals, but the duo who “complete each other’s musical sentences” have captured the hearts and ears of fans and DJs alike. In 2012, Tritonal stood out on the festival circuit, winning over legions of fans at massive gatherings such as Electric Daisy Carnival, Escape From Wonderland, Ultra Music Festival, A State of Trance 550, and Creamfields Australia. They also managed to find time to release nine new tracks through their record label, Air Up There Recordings, sell out legendary clubs such as Exchange LA and Space Miami and syndicate their popular Air Up There radio show throughout five continents. After 100 episodes of the show, Tritonal ended Air Up There with a sold out, live performance in their hometown of Austin, Texas. A new program called Tritonia will commence in 2013.
With a fan base of dedicated Tritonians expanding rapidly around the world and a truly memorable, vivacious stage presence which must be seen to be believed, Tritonal continue to shower music lovers with their uplifting, original material and brilliant remixes of some of the best dance music today.
The brand of 7 Skies goes far beyond what the eye can see. This talented producer, DJ and entrepreneur offers many surprises, guided by the endless talents he possesses across artistic and technical areas. Originating from Italy but reaching all corners of the world, 7 Skies productions have a universal appeal that are filled with emotion and energy combined.
At a young age, this creative mind fell in love with sound design, and through experimentation, a career in production and performing became a desire that could not be ignored. To this date, 7 Skies has created an impressive discography with releases on labels such as Anjunabeats, Armada, Enhanced and Euphonic. With each new production introduces a new element that evolves the 7 Skies “sound,” and sets a new standard for Electronic Dance Music.
The industry had its first introduction to 7 Skies with his remix of “Volume 1,” which secured a placement on the Anjunabeats “One Hundred” compilation. This fresh take on a modern-classic quickly gained recognition, and the trance community welcomed 7 Skies. Shortly after, his release of “Central Park” garnered supported from established producers such as Armin Van Buuren and Ferry Corsten.
In early 2010, the instant classic “Caffeine” was released on the legendary Anjunabeats imprint. It was this track that fans recognized as the sound of 7 Skies. The track was received with much enthusiasm and was played by Above & Beyond several weeks in a row on the group’s signature “Trance Around the World” podcast. Anjunabeats continued to support “Caffeine,” as it secured a placement on the Anjunabeats compilation, “Anjunabeats Worldwide 02.”
To continue the momentum of “Caffeine,” 7 Skies released “Sushi,” a track known for its distinctive and richly textured sound. “Sushi” has consistently been a crowd pleaser in sets by Above & Beyond, and some claim that it was the highlight of their set at Electric Daisy Carnival in 2010. “Sushi” was used as part of the official “The Electric Daisy Carnival Experience” film soundtrack as well as secured a placement on the “Anjunabeats Vol. 8” compilation. This track also peaked at number two on the Beatport Trance chart.
In addition to original releases, 7 Skies has also been sought after by noteworthy artists such as Super8 & Tab, Oliver Smith, Dan Stone and Daniel Kandi for remix work. The most notable remix request to date, however, came in from Above & Beyond. 7 Skies was given the honor of remixing “Sun & Moon,” the group’s first single off of their highly anticipated album, “Group Therapy.”
While his remix of “Mercy” by Super8 & Tab, was featured as part of Super8 & Tab’s “Empire: Remixed” album, the Daniel Kandi “Breathe” (7 Skies Remix) was exclusively produced for the “10 Years of Anjunabeats” compilation album.
All of 7 Skies’ releases continue to receive support from top DJs and well-known Trance radio shows like “Trance Around the World” and “A State of Trace.” 7 Skies has circled the globe from Los Angeles, to England, Eastern Europe, Australia and back.
In 2012 David returned to anjunabeats with a fresh new sound, shifting away from his classic trance sound, Vision (with Mike Koglin) marks a new exciting direction taken by the artist which now focuses even more on pleasing the clubbers and ravers around the globe.
And while 2013 is only half way thru 7 Skies already achieved a lot of goals since the year has started, starting from 2 tracks featured on the famous Anjunabeats Volume 10 by Above & Beyond, a remix for the hungarian duo Myon & Shane54 and their track “Lights” , a tour in Australia and North America and last but not least a brand new collaboration with Tritonal released on Steve Aoki’s label Dim Mak
David’s passion for music is not only devoted to the production of music, but also to sound design. David founded his own sound design consultancy company, Standalone-Music. (dot com) He has designed, and continues to design, sound sets for hardware and software synthesizers, offering products for all levels of producers. His sounds have been used in countless productions from today’s artists and producers. His skill set has caught the attention of several software houses that have commissioned him to produce factory sound sets that have been included in the final commercial releases of products, such as Lennardigital Sylenth1, Fxpansion DCAM and Geist. The most recent of his achievements in this field is the “7 Skies” expansion for the famous, and nearly studio standard, “Nexus” by reFX.
With already an impressive discography and resume in the area of sound design, it’s hard to know what to expect from this exciting talent in the near future. But legions of devoted fans and DJs everywhere know to expect nothing but the finest quality & originality in anything carrying the 7 Skies brand.
