Tenishia hold their own as the most successful DJ/Producer in Malta, selling arena shows and appearing everywhere from TV to mobile phone adverts. Winners of ‘Best Newcomer Award 2005′, ‘Best Live Performance 2005′ and 3 years in a row ‘Best Dance Tune Award’ at the Malta Awards, Tenishia has proved to be an icon to the young generation taking the clubbing scene by storm and building up enough fans to hold their own Tenishia Live events. They have been producing some of the biggest progressive trance tunes on the Armada Music label, which are quickly spreading this musical phenomenon around the world.
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 dj’ing 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 Music in 2005, following with three big hits with Kirsty Hawkshaw on Armada’s top label Armind. One of them 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 their home country of Malta with numerous gigs, including a booking at the MTV Summerdance Event and Creamfields, Tenishia got their biggest breakthrough 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 DJ’s into music production.
2012 turned out to be one of the most important years in their career, bringing Tenishia the release of their debut album ‘Memory Of A Dream’ on Armada Music. Including 16 jewels, the album features the magnificent voices of Jan Johnston, Chris Jones, Kyler England and many others. Another big success, was their rise to #50 in the DJ Mag Top 100. Being part of the Top 50 of most popular DJ’s in the world, it means the world to Tenishia that thousands of people have voted for them.
Hard driven and a full of determination, Tenishia kept pushing their way through the road of success, working from their state of the art studio in Malta, producing, organizing their own Tenishia Live events and also establishing their own production school to help out the new talents. Today, Tenishia travels the world with their music.
