Tipped by Tiësto as Best New Producer in 2008, Sied is yet another Dutch trancer with the middle name 'Van'. It was his 'Rush' release on Black Hole in 2008 that really put his name on the map, and after his 'In Riel Time Vol.1' CD mix in 2009 he crashed into the Top 100 DJs list at No.85 last year. "This year was insane, compared to last," Sied tells us. "I literally flew all over the globe doing events such as Sensation in Melbourne on New Year's Eve, Trance Energy, the WMC, Bal en Blanc (Canada), ASOT 450, Privilege Ibiza, Buenos Aires and a shit-load of others. My singles 'Radiator', 'Crossroads' and 'Serendipity' went through the roof in the charts - I am a happy and lucky man."
