Technasia aka Charles Siegling is a musician and DJ raised and based in Paris. Until 2008, the group also consisted of other founding member Amil Khan from Hong Kong. After meeting in China during the 90s, they felt it was time to put South East Asia on the world map of electronic dance music and started their musical duo and label Technasia in 1996. In 2008, Amil decided to quit the duo in order to commit exclusively to raising his newly born child. Charles is now the sole member of Technasia.
Charles has built his reputation during this last decade with acclaimed tracks such as ‘Oxide’, ‘2 The Floor’, ‘Descent’, ‘Future Mix’, ‘Hydra’, ‘Force’ and ‘Final Quadrant’. He has been exposed to a variety of electronic music and influenced in his works by early electronic sounds from the likes of Legendary Pink Dots, Coil, Xymox, Einstuerzende Neubauten and Depeche Mode.
Technasia has appeared at all the top electronic music festivals with several club residencies in high profile venues such as Womb in Tokyo, Nitsa in Barcelona, Fuse in Brussels and Rex Club in Paris.
During the last 8 years, Technasia has extended his activities to artist and label management, conducting artist performance bookings and executive music production (through his own structure Sino/Technorient Music) for artists such as Joris Voorn, Renato Cohen, Steve Rachmad and more recently Dosem.
Charles is currently in the studio producing his next Technasia album Central due in May 2010. Let Technasia take out at www.myspace.com/technasia. Checkout the video below of Technasia with Dosem live in Spain. It’s pumping!
