Since first being exposed to Trance music in the early 2000’s with labels like Anjunabeats, A State of Trance, and In Search Of Sunrise, he began soaking up as much dance music as he could. A few years later he discovered a more “techy” sound – labels like Cocoon Recordings, Hot Creations, and Crosstown Rebels were a huge influence. Naturally, his love for these two styles of music along with lots of experimentation along the way, slowly began fusing together to create his own distinct sound.
