With numerous releases on Armada Records that have blasted the speakers of various clubs and events around the planet, Tenishia have gained a solid international fanbase that is constantly demanding them to travel the World with their performances. They are know for their particular sound in Progressive Trance and also Chill Out productions which also lead to an IDMA Award nomination in 2011 at the WMC in Miami
Tenishia’s story started in Summer 2004 when Joven Grech and Cyprian Cassar met through mutual friends and joined forces for music production after a discussion about music in a small bar. Joven was already into djing for a few years while Cyprian had a perfect ear for good melodies due to his classical music background of playing the piano and other musical instruments from a very young age. Eventually their work in the studio paid off as they signed their first production to Armada in 2005, following with three big hits with Kirsty Hawkshaw on Armada’s top label Armind. One of which was ‘Outsiders’, which made it to big compilations such as ‘Ministry of Sound’ and ‘Cream Ibiza’, got chosen as ‘One for the Weekend’ on BBC Radio and transformed Tenishia from national to international stars as their music got to the hands of some of the World’s biggest names. Even though, Tenishia were already climbing the success ladder back in the home country of Malta with numerous gigs, including a booking at the MTV Summerdance Event and Creamfields, Tenishia got their biggest break trough in Malta when the World’s number one DJ, Armin van Buuren introduced them on stage while playing their already popular radio track ‘Burning from the Inside’. This sealed the deal, as it was the first time ever that such a big DJ played a locally made track which led to a whole revolution of a Club DJ on the island of Malta by inspiring young talents and already established DJs into music production.
