The producer is best known for his involvement in the dance, electronic and rock genres, which landed him in the upcoming 2022 edition Movement Electronic Music Festival, However, this hasn’t stopped him for expanding his creativity across different genres. He’s also worked with rappers and singers, including the late MF Doom, Denzel Curry and bassist Thundercat.
