Involved with California D&B since the beginning, his unique take on the sound and ability to gain any crowd’s trust has him playing some of the largest dance events in the Western U.S. including Nocturnal Wonderland, Lucidity, Control at Avalon, and numerous clubs and parties over the past year. His performance sound is D&B, Halftime, and Abstract beats, morphed, rearranged, and manipulated using Ableton Live. His production prowess has found him releasing music with artists such as Photek, Gridlok, Salva, Flinch, UFO!, and George Clinton, among others.
