After completing his first tour of Europe in 2006, he felt the influences of the minimal and deep house music from artists who performed at famous clubs such as “DC 10” in Ibiza, known as the Mecca of dance music. Since then, he has formed his own unique style, seamlessly mixing the sounds of minimal techno and house with an original edgy vibe.
In 2011 he won 1st place at the PATAGONICA DJ competition in Japan, organized by Parties 4 Peace and was invited to travel to Chile, South America to play with the leading artists in the underground electronic scene in March of 2012. Following his South American tour, Parties 4 Peace invited him to join the RED DOT RELIEF party organized in New York City with other great producers such as John Selway, Jay Haze and Eric Cloutier.
