SyL-o comes to us from another planet, but now is currently burning the streets of Atlanta, GA. From somewhere in this universe, SyL-o brings us HEAVY hitting mash-ups, MIND melting mixes, and ENERGY that can set a place on FIRE!
SyL-o’s influences come from the energy and soul of all types of music, film, and production. First as a DJ, and now as a DJ/producer, SyL-o enjoys creating and spinning heavy dubstep, electro, house and original tunes. He plays bass, guitar, and keys/synth. Creating and playing music has become his HUGE passion. From Ace of Base to Cradle of Filth, from punk to techno music, SyL-o is a thrill seeker – always living life on the edge. But there’s another side to the mystery known as SyL-o, as he admits a love for “girl bands or girl singers…they will always take my heart.”
But to know and enjoy SyL-o’s music is not just about sound, it is visually stimulating as well. SyL-o‘s other passion is film making, having studied at the Austin Film School. His love of performance can be seen on stage and off with his fun, bouncy, and crazy personality. SyL-o’s early recognition came as a DubStomp resident DJ in late 2010. SyL-o’s (aka Tyler Hillyer) name recognition and music has exploded since he became one of QUAD’s first resident DJs in early 2012 and can now be found spinning at QUAD in Atlanta at least once or twice a week.
SyL-o has conquered all the venues in town, opening for Borgore at Opera and at Wild Bill’s, for Zomboy at Masquerade and playing on the same stage as many international and national headliners at QUAD. He enjoys battling with fellow DJ J Stella (aka Oculus), and occasionally performing with female DJ Mk Ultra under the name "Sex Cells." Even more people will come to know the world of SyL-o soon -- he is one of only a few local DJs performing at the 3-day Counterpoint Festival near Atlanta in September 2012.
SyL-o …..something you need to see to believe!
“I make music from my Heart... Love it or Hate it.”
