Seeweed

Brass to Bass

U.S. Army Airborne combat veteran and Purple Heart recipient, Tyler Siegrest, “Has laid his machine gun rest.” 

After Honorable Discharge from the service, the GI Bill funded Tyler’s schooling at Community College in Scottsdale and Glendale. During college, and with the help of friends and family, he uncovered a new profound meaning and understanding for music. Thus, his journey as DJ SEEWEED began.

Bass Zone

The Beginning

With no previous degree focus in mind, he quickly enrolled in as many music classes as possible. After one semester of training, DJ Seeweed took to the underground circuit in the summer of 2016. Through local raves and house parties he began building his platform.

In 2017 he was introduced to the Scottsdale Community College Disc Jockey AAS Degree Course. 

Here he was led by a fantastic team of instructors and received all the tools necessary for success in the Music Businessincluding:

-Live Performance mentorship from Platinum Award-winning artist Candell “Candyman” Manson.

 -Disc Jockey and Scratch Techniques mentorship from Candyman’s DJ, “The Turntaplist,” DJ Ruthless Ramsey.

-Live Sound Reinforcement and Electronic Music Mentorship from FootKlan DJ Ascension.

-Studio Recording Mentorship from Craig Schumacher and his WaveLab Recording Studio.

-Music Business readiness with the college’s Music Program Director Ron Marshall.

The Foundation

Beyond the basics

Having a foundational understanding of the music business laid out by the College sparked an itch for understanding. 

DJ Seeweed gathered a small team of volunteers and local artists to create a weekly community give-back event called WEIRDnesday. 

The project was designed to give the festival community a complementary outlet during the week. Musicians, visual artists, music companies, dancers, promoters, and other industry professionals would donate their time and gear to the weekly cause. It was a kindling move in DJ Seeweed’s career as it not only created new, but bonded the current networks. It gave new artists (including himself) an opportunity to define their sounds and hone their crafts.

Upon completion of the WEIRDnesday project, DJ Seeweed redirected his focus in creating his first album set due for release in April of 2020.

What it's for

The Drive

DJ Seeweed gains drive and motivation in from his Daughter Marley, Pup Cortana, Mother, Family, Friends, and of course the loving support of his Dope Militia (fans). 

A natural in any trade and genre, DJ Seeweed can rock a party all night long with an extensive music library.

His Marijuana Induced Sound Waves would best be described as:

Electronic, Reggae, Funk, Soul Jazz and Rap influences with Bass, Dub, Moombah, House, Glitch, Drum and Bass Tempos. Filthy Dirty Ooo LaLa Vibes that are unique to his own.
