Straddling a bass heavy club sound that also encompasses leftfield rock music and global beats, Sinden is renowned for his genre-blending DJ sets, cracklin’ hot radio show, his banging remixes, and for being the Sinden in hotly tipped ‘The Count & Sinden’ and, alongside Herve.
His DJ career sees him criss-crossing the globe turning clubs on their heads with his fresh, eclectic sound, and throwing Count & Sinden’s Mega Warehouse parties in the UK. He had recently begun a column in the UK’s DJ magazine, and he’s also known for his lauded show groundbreaking UK radio station Kiss FM. Sinden’s show on Kiss was the first of its kind to host an eclectic selection of music that includes Funk Carioca, Baltimore Club, Kuduro, Juke House, Southern Hip Hop, Dancehall, House/Electro and much much more.
Having the radio show and the column keeps Sinden one step ahead of the game when it comes to finding new music, and he brings this taste-making approach to his productions. Sinden began making his own music around the time he forged a friendship with Dave “Switch” Taylor and was taken under his wing to learn the production game. Together they began to create progressive hip-hop, dancehall beats and other unclassifiable rhythms. Testing the water with his remixes of other artists has led to an impressive, diverse reel which includes mixes of Miike Snow, Jack Splash, Robbie Williams, Basement Jaxx, Bjork, Mujava, Armand van Helden and Mark Ronson, to name a few.
His production technique has further evolved in his collaboration with Joshua Harvey, aka The Count (aka Herve), on their project The Count & Sinden. Their single ‘Beeper’ was a crossover club smash which built on the success of early release ‘Tambourzouda’. Subsequent singles Hardcore Girls and Mega have been topped charts and been supported by a who’s who of top international DJs and producers. The Count and Sinden album is due out mid 2010 and features exciting vocals from a number of exciting guests.
Sinden has also announced the launch of his own label, Grizzly, which will feature more of the amazing sounds we’ve come to expect from him. First releases in Spring 2010 include a collaboration with SBTRKT, a new EP from Brodinski, and a WAFA, a solo project from the drummer in Basement Jaxx. Stay tuned!
