Roots
Tyson Illingworth, or better known as tyDi, is an Australian songwriter, record producer and DJ. When he was a 13-year-old drummer, he found that rhythm was his driving force, while punk was his favorite style. By 15, he had traded in his drum kit for a set of Technics 1200s. With his driving force and turntables at the ready, he entered Brisbane DJ Wars at just 16, and won. Within months, the bookings rolled in, and Brisbane’s famed Family Nightclub took him in as one of their residents. After achieving so much in his early years, he has now moved to Los Angeles to further develop his career.
Sounds
Trance, house

Between 2008 and 2012, he was included in the annual DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs poll, with his highest position at #48 in 2011. Besides his DJ activities, he also hosts a weekly podcast called Global Sound System on Electro City of Dash Radio. This podcast is syndicated to more than 30 countries weekly and available for download via iTunes and more recently SoundCloud.
Notable tracks
In 2009, he produced his first album titled Look Closer, and it reached #2 in the Australian Dance charts.

His fourth album was Redefined, released in 2014 and debuted at #4 on the USA iTunes Dance chart. The title track of this album then became the #1 dance airplay record in the USA and reached as high as #9 on Billboard Dance/Mix Show Airplay Chart in 2015. It was also named Sirius XM Electro #1 song of 2015.
