_______________________

I began my love affair with dance music in the late 1990's on the dance floor of Singapore's renowned superclub, Zouk. I picked up DJ-ing not long after, with a repertoire spanning the dance music spectrum, from jazz and broken beats to deep soulful house, and from deep, tech-house and tribal house to progressive house and techno.

In 2014, I began producing my own dance tracks, which are hugely inspired by the sounds I fell in love with back in the early 2000's - from the warm, organic, deep and soulful sounds of Blaze, Osunlade, Masters at Work, Francois K, Ben Watt, Bugz in the Attic, Restless Soul, Tortured Soul, DJ Gregory, Jerome Sydenham, Joe Claussell, Dennis Ferrer and more, to the big room, electronic manouevrings of Danny Tenaglia, Steve Lawler, Futureshock, Circulation, Subtech, Pete Heller, Underworld, Sasha, Max Graham, John Digweed, Gareth Emery and of course, Singapore’s very own Aldrin Quek. The goal - to create music that not only moves the body, but the heart and soul.

Do check out my releases on labels such as Harmor Records (UK), Emotive Sounds (Denmark), Stickrsound (Netherlands), Bullfinch Records (Belarus), DataTech (Germany) and upcoming releases on SRNDR Records, the record label arm of Surrender HQ.
