He’s been called a Renaissance man of the West Coast scene, and with good reason. The man behind Opel Productions, one of the West Coasts biggest promoters, the co-founder of the legendary Opulent Temple camp, one of the all-time premier sound stages at Burning Man, Board Member and key producer of the San Francisco LovEvolution event (formerly known as LoveFest & Love Parade), as well as a psychologist, activist and of course a DJ. On the DJ tip, Syd is one of the West Coast’s top talents, consistently being voted in the Top 10 San Francisco Dream Team poll, and playing the biggest events in California party land. Playing a versatile range of electro house and breaks, to progressive and tech-trance, he’s been personally tapped to open and close for the varied likes of Tiesto, Moby, Stanton Warriors, Paul Oakenfold, Underworld, Armin Van Burren, Adam Freeland, Meat Katie, Elite Force, and the list goes on. His debut single, out last year, ‘Who Are You?’ cracked the crowded Beatport Top 30 electro chart. Syd knows what to do in any situation to bring the universal vibe of dance music. His sets are known for walking the fine line between the gritty and the pretty, and he has a range seen.
