Stas Swaczyna

The artist trio TalkSick (Elke Tiel, Stas Swaczyna and Daniel van der Molen) was formed in 2019 when three friends decided to have a songwriting session together. The result was one of their first songs getting signed by a label in New York, leading to their track “Like Nobody” reaching the number 1 spot on the Billboard Dance Chart in America. The inspiration for the name TalkSick came from the old Dutch saying: “Niet lullen, maar poetsen,” which means “Don’t talk, just do it.” In other words, don’t spend too much time discussing and overthinking things, but learn and experience by taking action.

The vibe of TalkSick is upbeat and energetic, but as songwriters and producers, they also enjoy creating power ballads and epic songs. They draw inspiration from bands like The Chainsmokers, Swedish House Mafia, Zedd, and Calvin Harris, as well as film music composers like Hans Zimmer and John Williams. In their sound, TalkSick aims to bridge the music of the ’80s and ’90s with the current deep house pop sound.

Stas Swaczyna is co-producer of “Lost Frequencies – Are You With Me,” who started as an audio designer at 3FM in 2003 and has since been responsible for jingles for 3FM, the 538 morning show with Frank Dane, Coen & Sander Show (538), Mattie & Marieke (Q-Music), and co-producer of Miss Montreal’s “Irrational” album. From 2014 to 2018, he was part of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest production team, highlighted by producing for the boyband FOURCE, who placed 4th in Georgia. He also produced the hit “Anne-Fleur Vakantie” for Roxy Dekker, was a club DJ, and made radio programs for Radio Decibel, which relaunched as a commercial radio station in 2009.
