Now fast forward through a successful career as an electronic dance music artist to 2006 when he started writing song-based melodic downtempo music. His newest release, Don’t Wake Me, features unique cuts full of texture and emotion and uses a myriad of sounds, from soothing keyboards to jazz flute.
Growing up, he was influenced by 80’s British pop like Depeche Mode and New Order; while you can hear the melodic elements of their work in his, he’s gone in a whole different direction with this new chillout release.
He thinks like a great cinematographer, with moving melodic lines and layers of innovative sounds presenting a vivid story. Sometimes the songs sound like a movie soundtrack.
