Melbourne is currently teeming with some of the most promising electronic dance music producers to hit the scene in years. At only 19 years of age, Tyron Hapi is making his mark as one of the most promising ‘up-and-coming’ producers Australia has to offer. Tyron’s growing discography of originals, remixes and collaborations are being released on some of the world’s best known labels including: SPINNIN’, Universal, Dim Mak, Bourne Recordings and Armada Records (just to name a few), through his Alias – AC3.
A self-taught pianist and natural musical talent like Tyron’s, doesn’t come around often. In 2011 he was earmarked as someone with an exceptional musical ability when he was accepted into the highly respected ‘Victorian College of the Arts’ Secondary School on a ‘Drumming Scholarship.’ There Tyron learned in detail about music theory, which gave him the platform to focus his skills into a more professional sounding product and prepare him for what lay ahead. He’s paved a pathway that has lead him to collaborate with some of Australia’s best known artists such as: Will Sparks, Timmy Trumpet and Joel Fletcher. Tyron has landed himself gigs around the country and across New Zealand, the UK and Europe. Just one listen to Tyron’s productions and it is evident that all his hard work and study have held him in good stead, together with the technical proficiency in his productions, that belies his young age.
Producing since the young age of 14, Tyron has honed his skills to display a trademark sound which fuses soothing progressive house breakdowns with melodic and catchy drops. There is no doubt Tyron Hapi is part of a new school of producer to emerge of late; a new breed that has been brought up on a musical diet of electronic music and club culture. There is little doubt he will be a future leader in the next phase of the scene’s evolution. The world is about to be hit with the pure talent that is Tyron Hapi – get on board now as he is going places and we are all invited for the ride.
