As Wish I Was, channeled his darker and more emotional lyrics into some new songs that he put on Soundcloud.  The more relaxed vibes captured everyone’s attention, and the song “Cutting Ties” became the most played track for Sirius XM Chill.  People embraced this different sound, and tyDi was happy to be able to express his dual personality.

So what does the artist with two personas do next?  An orchestral electronic album called Collide.   put his degree in classical music to work and did the sound design for 12 tracks ranging from house and trance to trap and drum and bass, with some progressive in the mix.  He then teamed up with award-winning composer Christopher Tin to arrange the music for the Symphony Orchestra.   This isn’t some acoustic or candlelight version of EDM tracks; Collide has stepping outside of his box and taking where it has been, with a focus on counterpoint writing and showing the intellectual beauty of composition.

announced the Collide album exclusively on Nexus radio, saying the album is a cohesive piece of work with six-minute songs meant to be listened to as an album.  A true artist album, now that’s the work of a real artist who is truly pushing boundaries.
