Tyson

Tyson, aka Tyson Speede, was an associate of Unklejam, a U.K. trio agreed upon to Virgin that fused funk, spirit, disco, and modern R&B. They released a self-titled record in 2007 that highlighted a U.K. Best 20 one, “What Am I Fighting For?” Their most dazzling quality was Tyson’s tone of voice, capable of achieving a falsetto that recalled that of disco star Sylvester (if a little huskier). When Tyson proceeded to go solo this year 2010, the Sylvester likeness not merely continuing but intensified. The vocalist, songwriter, and producer’s debut single single for YARD, “Die in the Dancefloor,” deeply resembled Sylvester’s electro-disco/Hi-NRG collaborations with Patrick Cowley. After two singles in 2011 — “After You’re Eliminated” and “Out of My Brain,” both which had been also inspired with the early-’80s audio — Tyson released an record, Die in the Dancefloor, in Feb 2012.
