Always on the spot for new sounds and fresh music, his sets are a fine example of what is happening at the moment with this renaissance of the house sound adding to it his very own deep, percussive touch…a mixture of deep house building to full flavoured tech and dubby techno..
Heavily influenced by the sounds of Berlin, Manheim, and London, the love for warm synth’s as well as for deep twisted basslines and dark, trippy atmospheres is his main and most recognizable feature . What he manages to achieve when he play is a fluid and dynamic sound, made of different styles blended together in a way that makes you move! Subtle melodies and smokey beats lead thru an evocative and deep journey that will have the dancefloor trip…
In addition, he’s also active in studio as a producer, with releases on Gitex Audio (sub-label of Etichetta Nera), Urban Legend Recordings, and House Beat Records.
