Orthokiss, is an EDM band based out of Tampa FL consisting
of Bryan Tyson and Skye Vaness. Bryan Tyson has led an
extensive history in EDM under the name Beautiful Confusion.
His most noted EDM remix is his Blue Foundation remix of
“Eyes of Fire”. Bryan started his studio “Deep Productions” in
2001 and is now one of the most renowned studios in central
Florida with 5 Gold and 2 Platinum records. Bryan’s most
Successful works in Hip Hop was his engineering, production and 9 beats he created for the rapper Plies leading to the 1# album in the country on Billboard Top 100. Bryan has worked along the sides of artist like Dj Khaled, Plies, Sean Kingston, T Pain, Fat Joe, Gorilla Zoe and even legends like Grand Master D from Whodini who sought him out to make the opening song for the Hollywood actor Eddie Griffins comedy show. Bryan started Djing at 13 and soon became one of the best scratch Djs in Tampa FL. He was invited to be the DJ for Heavy D when his Dj passed away years ago but because of Bryan’s age, his parents didn’t permit. Bryan A.K.A. Beautiful Confusion, has been a Dj in several clubs and performed at events like Hallucination before Christmas and Blood on the Turntables. Elohim records was created in 2011 for releasing all of Bryans EDM endeavors. Bryan and Skye both are UFO enthusiasts. Ufos angels and aliens are a prominent subject in the lyrical and visual content of Orthokiss’s music. The logo reflects a UFO painted on a wall 20k years ago with the name Elohim written above it which translates as “the gods”. It’s not hard to believe some of his greatest musical influences are Dj Monk, Nero, Depeche Mode, Rabbit in the Moon, Dj Sasha Timbaland and Deadmau5. This mash up with the musical influences of Skye Vaness like Ellie Goulding, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Die Antwoord lead to the unpredictable sound of Orthokiss.
Skye Vaness is from Harrisonburg Virginia and moved to Tampa FL in 2001. She started playing the guitar and singing at age 14 and was already performing well written productions as the lead singer for a punk band at the age of 15. Around the same time, Skye entered into a few artistic avenues like modeling and soon became one of the most sought after models in Tampa Bay, not to mention a 3rd degree black belt! Fast forward ten years and what was once facebook friends has now become the dynamic duo “Orthokiss” This power couple record, mix and produce their own music along with create their own websites, shoot their own photos and music videos. The name Orthokiss originated through error. Skye was trying to pronounce the new constellation Ophiuchus and said “Orthokiss”. When Bryan heard the name he was so floored by how much it sounded like a Marvel Comic super hero or some powerful alien from another planet that he immediately branded it as the group name. It’s almost impossible to find a unique name these days so Orthokiss, pronounced “Orthakiss” was a gift from the stars. Skye and Bryan write all their songs together, with Skye being the predominant lyricist and Bryan the predominant musician/technician. This collusion of creativity has led to dynamite in the studio in what seems to be a never ending story.
