Biography

Born Sidney Charles Hurricane Vieljans, his journey towards the world of house and techno began when he first started mixing hip-hop, soul and funk at the age of 15. Taking his cues from the golden age of turntablism and associated culture in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, his attentions were led towards other sounds of the era also enjoying their first heyday.

For a producer who only started releasing music in 2011, Sidney’s achievements are all the more impressive. In the space of just five years, his works have graced bastions of house and techno such as AVOTRE, 8bit, Truesoul, Moda Black, Hot Creations, KDIS, SCI+TEC, Area Remote, plus remixes for Moby and Basemnet Jaxx - each release adding to his clout and helping him to become one of the biggest names in the underground.

Along with his lengthy studio stints and his focus on making dancefloors vibrate.

Sidney continues to collaborate closely with his AVOTRE label mate and buddy Santé, whether it’s playing sold out AVOTRE label nights or making tracks together. AVOTRE and Sidney’s rise to the top has often been hand in hand and this fruitful alliance shows no sign of fading. It was this sonic partnership that caught the eye of Radio One’s Pete Tong who invited them to release an Essential Mix in 2016.

Looking to the future, Sidney continues his upward trajectory, with a plethora of roadblock shows in the diary for summer 2017, including dates at Glastonbury, Elrow’s newly announced Amnesia Ibiza residency, and several other key festivals including Amsterdam Open Air, and BPM Portugal.

Release wise, Sidney has continued to go from strength to strength after taking part in the remix album of Moby’s seminal ‘Play’, on which he put his unique spin on ‘Natural Blues’. Looking ahead he also has tracks in the can for Moon Harbour, a return to AVOTRE and a further EP for Lee Foss’ recently launched Repopulate Mars imprint.

With the diversity he’s displayed and the continually acclaimed output he’s been creating, there’s little doubt that Sidney Charles can continue to grow and evolve in the years to come - even within those refreshingly focused parameters which he has set for himself.
