Rob Tissera is one of dance music's most prolific stars. A top-selling producer and versatile dj whose technical brilliance and effervescent sets have seen him pack out parties across the globe. Tissera's experience and ability to thrill audiences playing any genre is something only a handful of DJ can match. Famed for his hi-energy hard trance and hard house sets he's also rocked audiences playing dirty funk, uplifting house or big room trance.
Over the years he's played every big party. He's been a regular at Gatecrasher, The Gallery, Tidy Weekenders, Frantic, Slinky, Ministry of Sound, Sundissential, Hacienda, Pam's House, Wildchild, Hard House Academy, Union, Godskitchen, GoodGreef , Global Gathering, Creamfields and Homelands to name a few.

In 2004 he graced the hallowed turntables of Radio One, not once, but twice - something only DJ elite ever get to do. The first time was with a converted Essential Mix and the second, a live mix from Radio One's Weekend in Ibiza.
A forward thinking dj Rob is constantly embracing new technology in music.
A world-class remixer Rob re-edits the majority of tunes he plays which gives the audience a unique musical experience. Such is his skill on the decks he mixes using three decks and two CDJs overlaying each song with accapellas and effects to add to the Tissera experience. His sets are really something to behold.
Apart from being a skilled DJ Rob is a world-class and top-selling music producer. In 2002 "The Day Will Come" produced under his pseudo name Quake with Ian Bland shot to number 30 in the UK charts. This led to three tracks being commissioned for the award winning soundtrack of the cult movie 'Human Traffic Soundtrack'. Quake's 1998 remix of York 'The Awakening' sold over a quarter of million copies and reached number 11 in the charts. And with tunes today getting to number one by selling less than 25 thousand this is some mile stone.
As a result he's was asked to remix a string of high selling remixes for people such as Blank and Jones, Judge Jules, Eddie Halliwell, ATB, Anne Savage, Armin Van Buurin, The Tidy Boys. In 2004 he reached the top 100 UK chart again - this time with his uplifting hard dance tune with "Stay" which he co-produced with Vinylgroover and The Redhed which was acclaimed by industry and clubbers alike.
As well as producing tracks Rob is regularly asked to produce mix albums. His consistency and musical flair in guaranteed to sell records. In 2004 he produced Hard Dance Anthems and the critically acclaimed Goodgreef 2 Album.
