Born Sidney Charles Hurricane Vieljans, his journey towards the world of house and techno began when he first started mixing hip-hop, soul and funk at the age of 15. Taking his cues from the golden age of turntablism and associated culture in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, his attentions were led towards other sounds of the era also enjoying their first heyday.
For a producer who only started releasing music in 2011, Sidney’s achievements are all the more impressive. In the space of just five years, his works have graced bastions of house and techno such as AVOTRE, 8bit, Truesoul, Moda Black, Hot Creations, KDIS, SCI+TEC, Area Remote, plus remixes for Moby and Basement Jaxx - each release adding to his clout and helping him to become one of the biggest names in the underground.
Looking to the future, Sidney continues his upward trajectory, with a plethora of roadblock shows in the diary for summer 2018, including dates throughout the world’s key dance music destinations such as London, Berlin, Ibiza, and further tours planned for South America, Asia, and The US. Sidney has also locked in several key festival appearances for summer 2018 and will be sharing the stage with Santé at the forthcoming CAVE RAVE shows, a brand new event concept that combines sate of the art 3D projection and lighting with groundbreaking sound engineering and a forward thinking booking policy.
Release wise, Sidney has continued to go from strength to strength after taking part in the remix album of Moby’s seminal ‘Play’ at the end of 2017, on which he put his unique spin on ‘Natural Blues’. Looking ahead he also has tracks in the can for Moon Harbour, a return to AVOTRE.
