The Making of Collide

Tin is well known for his composition and scores across the concert music, film, and video game industries. He also has won copious awards and honors.

His album, Calling All Dawns, was awarded another Grammy Award for Best Classical Crossover Album in the same year.
“When you watch a film with an intense score, you’re swept away to a different planet. The atmosphere, emotions, melodies and instruments captivate you. That feeling doesn’t always enter the dance realm. I wanted to capture that magic and bring it to the electronic world,” tyDi says.
“Closing In” and “Did You Know?”
His first single from is album, “Closing In,” features Dia Frampton. This was one of the only two dance songs to be featured in Spotify’s coveted New Music Friday Playlist on the day of its release along with “Did You Know?” In his new music, he got the chance to combine his trance roots with an orchestral twist: Chunky synthesizers and futuristic sequencers build a digital playground as lush strings and horns paint a cinematic backdrop while singer London Rouge angelically coos of love and longing.
