Australia based DJ and producer tyDi just released his new LP Redefined on September 30th and in our highlighted track “Redefined (feat. Melanie Fontana)” it is clear that the award winning DJ and multi-platinum songwriter are poised to make an impact on the dance charts. Their initial collaboration “Nothing Really Matters” premiered on Billboard online and went on to break the esteemed Top 50 Dance Chart that year. The album itself is an assortment of his compositions and that feature intimately produced vocals from the likes of Dashboard Confessional’s Chris Carrabba, The Ready Set, Kerli and songwriter BC Jean (of Beyonce’s “If I Were A Boy).
We refer to the productions as intimate since they were all designed through in person studio sessions instead of the normal phone-in conversations that are so often used when working with major names. The title track is aptly named since tyDi has made a sincere effort to mold his personal style through collaborative efforts on this latest compilation. “Redefined” has a decidedly deceptive intro that comes in with a soft, melodic pop piano line and quickly transitions into a fast-paced pure EDM number. If nothing else, Melanie Fontana’s soaring vocals make the listener want to dance and are the spark that starts that fire with the pulsing beat and upbeat synths.
