About Me

Heavily into dance music since the age of 10 when i first heard F.C.B's "Excalibur", hooked ever since. Heard The Prodigy's "Firestarter" at around age 12, changed my life forever. Love dance beats and love break beats. Started messing around with soft synths, samples and wave editors probably by age 11, had a garage band at around age 14-15, electronic focused with keyboards drums and an MC. Got off the beaten track through the course off high school, lost track of music production by about age 15-16, big dark period in my life. Got into beat mixing around age 19 along with the rave scene. Started to dabble with music production a little again over the next few years but didn't properly get back into it until mid to late last year. Although I now work full time, it is still what i consider an ambitious hobby and is a massive focus of my life.

My Music Sounds Like

A mix of electronic sounds. Lots of distorted software synths, compressed drums, sub bass, distorted basslines. Music in the style of the big beat music genre of the 90s except it is mostly composed from scratch with very little sampling and in general a more manic vibe.
