Musical History: Started playing piano at a young age, moved from instrument to instrument as I got older from, cornet, guitar, drums, until I finally got into producing music at around 17-18 using Cubase and Reason in college and actually stuck to it. Started off producing trance and house, dabbled in a bit of dubstep and started producing future garage just over a year ago now where I’ve started to find and craft my own sound. I now produce on Ableton Live 9 and use my Korg MS2000R synth for pretty much all the sounds in my music.

What are you expecting from the night, have you played in Berlin before?
Never been to Berlin before, looking forward to seeing how the German nightlife is, always known the Germans to be mad for electronic music in general and am excited to experience a different culture. Can’t wait to also meet the Risin Sound family after listening to their music and following them for a while now.
