How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


I was heavily influenced by the euro-house club scene while studying in Europe in the mid 2000's. This was exacerbated by the explosion of EDM in America, particularly the advent of heavy electro house. I try to stay true to my original goals with my sound, and remain stagnant is style amidst the ever-shifting landscape of EDM. Though, over the years my style has definitely gained a cinematic presence that has steadily accrued over time.


What´s new right now?


I have recently independently released a single on my label Zero1, entitled "illuminate" and am in the final stages of completion on my first EP, set for release summer '18. Ill be on a nightclub tour this summer so keep an eye on your local venues.

What was the biggest mistake you made when you started making music and what would be the number one tip you could give to a newcomer musician?


When I started out I believed I could insource everything: Producing, Mixing, Mastering, Social Media Management, Promotion, Distribution…..the list goes on.

My biggest realization over time has been to stick to what you excel at, and build a team of professionals who can assist in areas that are lacking. It takes time and is a significant investment, but will pay out in the long run.

What is your best tip for those who struggle with finishing their tracks?


Don't save everything you make. Only have a couple projects you are actively working on. Start a track to finish it, and see it through. Don't be discouraged if it takes months/years…
