At just 16, Tyler Guyton (aka. Tyco)  is part of a new wave of young talent entering the EDM scene. A producer, DJ, and local favorite in his hometown of Phoenix, AZ, the high school junior juggles schoolwork and sound production with ease. I got a chance to ask Tyler about his influences, his music, and where he is headed next.

So where did the name ‘Tyco’ originate? Tyler says he wanted to incorporate his name into his stage name, and the ‘Ty’ just  paired well with ‘co”:

“I thought of Tyco because it’s apart of my name “Tyler” & the co part came up because it fit just right.” Tyler Guyton

Drawing inspiration from House staples such as Tiesto and Laidback Luke, Tyler began producing just as EDM exploded into the American scene and house tracks began to appear on top 40’s radiostations. A devoted fan of Hardwell, Tyler hopes to one day master sound production and live performance and plans to attend Icon Collective, an alma mater of Protohype, MakJ, and various other successful DJ/Producers in the scene. Discovering music from Soundcloud, some of Tyler’s favorite songs he’s discovered recently are ‘Footlocker’ by Mightyfools and the Hardwell remix of Krewella‘s ‘Alive’. He describes his music as ‘Dirty Electro’, Tyler produces on FL Studio 11 and has most recently released his original mix ‘Bassgasm’ on Soundcloud.

He’s notably played at events such as Imaginationland, and is rumored to have a possible  appearance in Miami later this year, but Tyler says his ultimate dream would to be to play at Ultra Music Festival alongside greats like Hardwell, W&W, Tiesto, Armin van Buuren, Nicky Romero, Dash Berlin, Dyro, Krewella, and Porter Robinson. Tyler had just one thing to say about what he believes will be coming next in the EDM scene:

“Prepare for the new generation of bass music!” Tyler Guyton

When he isn’t producing, DJing, or in class, Tyler is an avid gamer.
