Biography


Guy Sweens was born in the South-East of the Netherlands. As a child, he showed many interest in music and he was spending much time listening to pop- and classical music. When Guy reached the age of 16, he found out about a rarely new technique in the pop music scene that was and still is very popular: (re)mixing of already existing records.

By coincidence, Guy discovered the weekly broadcast remixes of world famous Dutch remixer/producer Ben Liebrand in 1986. Inspired by Liebrand's remixes, Guy started to make remixes himself. He used a room in front of his bedroom in his parents' house, that became his home-studio. Almost all of Guy's remixes were broadcast on Belgium radiostation Maasvallei Radio.

In 1990, Guy changed direction and began producing Dance music. Many of these Dance-tracks were also broadcast on Maasvallei Radio. In 1993, Guy started composing a completely different style of music: New Age Music. Guy discovered this, in that time, new musical genre in 1987. The first New Age song Guy ever listened to was "Dawnlight" from Karunesh and from that moment on he never looked back. He continued composing both Dance-Music (mostly Trance) and New-Age Music until the year 2000. By then, he decided to concentrate only on composing New Age and World-Fusion.

New Age and World-Fusion gave Guy much more freedom to express himself, without the obligation to constantly keeping up with new musical trends, which is always the case in the Dance-scene.

In 2005, Guy became a professional composer/producer. He won the "MG Music New Talent Competition" and signed a record deal with MG Music later that year. MG Music is the record label of highly acclaimed new age artist Medwyn Goodall, based in the UK.

In Spring 2005, Guy released his first album with MG Music "Gaya of Wisdom". In 2006 he participated in a cd-project called "OM" and wrote and produced the track "Mahayana" featuring Medwyn Goodall on guitar and pan-pipes and Terry Oldfield (brother of Mike Oldfield) on the Bansuri-flute.

The year 2007 gave life to Guy's album "Kamadeva" followed by "The Legend of Ganesha" in 2009.

Guy's music can best be defined as vibrant, passionate, spiritual and saturated with melodic warmth and gentle rhythm. It is a fusion of western and exotic styles, often with a clear Indian influence. In order to create these textures, Guy uses many different instruments from all over the world, combined with modern synthesis and technology.

During 2012, Guy founded a new musical project called "Chill Connection". It's a Lounge/Chill Out/Downtempo project and the first album "Mesmerise" came out in May of the same year on record label Eye Lounge Records. Mesmerise is available at ITunes and Beatport.
