Name: Nicholas Van Wyk
The Spoken Word
A man who has been completely smashing floors as a DJ and in our opinion needs to be given his due, Siren is a household name and holds a candle to versatility in sound with seamless results. Having given a taste for what he does since the early gathering of Red Telephone his dynamic personality which shines throughout his sets brought him to multiple Vortex stages over the last few years with some very memorable results. Founder of Trancemission, Nick has been curating lineups to give a broad spectrum taste of what psytrance has to offer and in turn has given people a chance to see artists which we don’t normally get a chance to whilst giving the emerging artist a chance to shine. We commend his ideals and what he stands for and we urge you to watch out for him and the work he is doing with Trancemission.
