"The foundation of my curiosity in music lays in the high school years when awe-inspiring hip-hop productions from legends as DJ Premier, Jay Dee, and RZA would get me hooked, each with their own authentic style. I got intrigued by the art of sampling, which opened the door towards years of soul and funk digging to come. Later on, I started exploring more experimental productions made with early analog sound synthesizers; the music that heavily influenced the rise of house music in all its shapes years later. Finding common ground between elements of seemingly unrelated tracks in breakbeat, electro, (proto) house, Italo, funk and ambient sounds can launch a powerful dynamic vibe that I try to harmonize in every set."
