Personal Quote:

[on why he does what he does]: Looking at the sea of people playing instruments I realised that that wasn't necessarily the way to do something new or exciting, even though it is usually enjoyable to play in a band with other musicians. When I started thinking of making music I wanted to do something that was, maybe, a bit special.


Became infatuated with American jazz music, and his collection of old mixers and samplers led him to his first three Jazz infused releases.
