He cut his teeth on house and trance legends:

Paul Van Dyk, Solarstone and Energy 52 were his trance gurus while Eric Morillo and Seth Troxler gave him the four-to-the-floor education while he was growing up in Melbourne.

He's been in town since 2011:

'Singapore has been my home base since 2011! I've been in and out of town, playing a lot more in the region in the past year, and slowly making my way to Europe.'

He's had hilarious experiences on the road:

'I had a poor kid sit on a power board under the DJ booth because the vibrations kept loosening the power cables - a pretty awkward situation for several hours.

He loves how EDM is now mainstream:

'It's finally getting the recognition it deserves. EDM is uplifting, positive and there's loads of energy, which works for mainroom clubs and festivals. It plays toward a "raver mentality" but is still accessible.' 

He'll take his bangers to Cloud:

He's bringing his progressive and electro choons to Cloud for its Ignite night on July 24. Besides that, he spins regularly at the club, every third or fourth Friday of the month.
