The Austin duo Tritonal drips with European style, mixing heavenly progressive house and trance with pop hooks.
• Chad Cisneros is from Texas, while Dave Reed is originally from D.C. The pair met in an online forum for users of Virus Ti synthesizers.
• UK Trance legends Above & Beyond were early fans. They included Tritonal’s early single, “Lights Over Austin,” on their 2008 Anjunabeats Volume 6 compilation.
• By 2020, Tritonal had released more than 80 singles across nine EPs and three studio albums. They had their biggest commercial hit with 2015’s “Until You Were Gone,” featuring The Chainsmokers and Emily Warren.
• The pair’s 2018 single “Love U Right” benefited the National Alliance for Mental Health. The cause was close to Cisneros’ heart, as he struggled with drugs and alcohol years earlier.
