tyDi (born Tyson Illingworth on 31 May 1987) is an Australian DJ and producer. He is currently listed as Australia's #2 DJ, losing out in 2010 to Aston Shuffle after holding the #1 spot for the previous two years.
Introduced to dance music in his mid teens, it took only a few short months before tyDi had traded in his drum kit and bought his first set of turntables. By the time he was sixteen, he had won his first competition, Brisbane DJ Wars.
At the age of 17, tyDi moved from his hometown of Mooloolaba Beach on Queensland's Sunshine Coast, to the state's capital, Brisbane. There he began performing at premier nightclub The Family, who were so impressed with his skills, they made him a permanent resident in 2004.
2008 proved to be a big year for tyDi. Aside from his win in the Sony inthemix competition, he also received acclaim from fellow DJs around the world. His track 'Meet Me in Kyoto' was the first track to be signed to record label Armada and also featured on 'Amsterdam 08' by Markus Schulz. Schulz also featured tyDi's track Russia on his 'Ibiza 08' release.
That same year, tyDi was involved in the Queensland Government's anti-binge drinking campaign Every Drink Counts, producing the soundtrack for a series of hard-hitting advertisements. He also created the theme track for Sunshine Coast mixed-use luxury development Emporio and was involved in the music production of several yet to be released video games.
At the end of 2008, tyDi was invited by dance event giant ID&T to close Melbourne's Sensation NYE party. Following that performance in front of 42,000 fans, ID&T extended a further invitation for tyDi to play the Trance Energy festivals throughout Australia and Holland in March 2009, the latter of which saw him share the Main Stage with trance heavyweights Armin van Buuren, Paul van Dyk and John O'Callaghan.
tyDi released his first full length album 'Look Closer' on 25 April 2009. In May of the same year, it debuted at #2 on the AIR Dance Album Chart. In August 2009, tyDi cemented his place in Australia's dance music scene by taking out the #1 position in the Sony inthemix Top50 DJ poll for the second year in a row.
Since November 2011 tyDi has been producing a weekly two hour radio show/podcast, called Global Soundsystem. As of 31 May 2012 there have been 134 episodes. On 10 May 2012 the show was condensed from its original two hour format to a one hour show. The show is hosted by tyDi and features the latest electronic dance music from around the world.
The show is syndicated and broadcast around the world every week as well as being available for download to the general public.
