Desyn Masiello is of a rare breed of DJ. Not content with founding one of the most respected underground promotions companies and record labels, he is forging a reputation as one of most talented and upfront DJs in the world. His ear for a tune has become a hallmark; consistently picking up on unknown tracks and turning them in to dancefloor monsters have made his every set a true occasion. His upfront selection has earned plaudits and praise from the very highest levels, from Danny Tenaglia, to Danny Howells, Deep Dish and 16b.

Desyn has always been an innovator. Frustrated at the lack of opportunities at the time four years ago in London Desyn typically took matters into his own hands and set up Symphonic Promotions and Management with DJ collaborator 'Paolo' a music promotions company dedicated solely to their vision of twisted, funky and progressive house. Clients from all over the World such as Alola, Disclosure, Sunkissed, Teknology, Protea, Tonkin and Barracuda are on the roster of this small but perfectly formed promo company. partner Chapple Davis handles radio promotion for many of the UK's major labels and artists (e.g. Cevin Fisher on Subversive and Paul Van Dyk on Deviant). The policy of less is more serving only limited numbers of each track - served them well in building a groundswell of respect with the industry and began to forge influential links for Desynís burgeoning Djing career. Notable successes of this period included being signed up by Sony to exclusively DJ for their sponsored events, and this saw him spin at the inaugural Creamfields, V98 music festival, and Sony Birthday with Danny Howells - all times to rapturous response.

An all-round music man, Desyn set up and runs Alternative Route Recordings Ltd and Alternative Route Studios, a record label / studio that he owns with his partner William Brunner (AKA PMT & Fata Morgana). Never one to do things by halves, their first release was the mighty 'KC Flightt vs. Funky Junction' 'Voices', charted at No.1 by Deep Dish and played by almost every premier league DJ. The success of this long-overlooked track is testament to Desyn's A&R ability to unearth hot music as is the massive 'Freedom Is' by Stefano Greppi from Italy the label's second release and exclusively on rotation with none other than Danny Tenaglia. Major labels have quickly recognised this ability and Desyn has been actively hunted for major A&R roles. However he is content to continue setting his own impressive agenda for the time being.

Searching for a clubbing identity to match the success of Symphonic and Alternative Route, he set up The Big Mojo in London in 1999. Hitting on a previously underused Piccadilly venue, he transformed it into one of the most talked about club nights in London, with an intimacy and vibe the bigger clubs could only dream of. Roping in close friend and acclaimed producer Omid Nourizadeh (16b) to play alongside him at the opening gig and hiring close friend and fellow DJ Paolo, the three completed a formidable resident trio.

Following the success of the Mojo parties, Desyn shrewdly combined the club's success and his arsenal of upfront tracks to produce Mojo Grooves - a demo CD that won unprecedented acclaim from global promoters and punters and set the stage for his international career.

This combination of factors has seen Desyn's reputation and workload skyrocket. A monthly residency at London's top tribal and progressive house night 'Elements' has been established, and further afield he is resident at Liekki (Tampere, Finland), Stereo (Helsinki), and of course his own night 'The Big Mojo'. Desyn's DJ skills are now in demand across the world and up and coming guest spots include Renaissance (London), Double 0 (Singapore), Limelight (NYC), Love Bomb & H20 (Warsaw) and Intensity (Ireland) all confirmed.

The Mojo reputation has since built up into an international brand; with two acclaimed parties staged at the 2001 WMC in Miami. The YoshiToshi party saw a brilliant set from Desyn and 16b, featuring one of the most upfront and diverse set selections. Guests at the party included Deep Dish and Danny Howells who took time to personally congratulate Desyn for his set.

The Mojo name is in negation with several major names in the global clubbing scene; and looks set to go truly international in 2001, alongside various UK tour dates with 16b and Paolo.

For Desyn - one of the brightest talents in the dance music industry - the future is extremely bright.
