While the rapid development of the capital city and society brought freedom to people and encouragement for a new lifestyle, clubs were found opened from 10am to 2pm followed by 8pm ongoing to 6am.
Eventually, the absence of any law regulating nightlife brought down a lot of parties into town. During the 90’s, adolescents were going to Discos in the morning and adults at night!
The millennium caught up with him in London. Influenced by one of the world’s best party-cities, he decided to study Sound Engineering developing his knowledge from within the music industry. Along the way, he met with some of London’s most glamorous promoters, as they recognized his passion for music and his unique developed style in Disc Jockeying.

The knowledge of complexed rhythms and the way they act in a mix, moreover how they are received by the human ear and body is one of his unique specialities. He is also one of the most unexpected DJ's you'll ever witness behind decks, the modesty and the connection between him and the crowd is described as a singular doomflow of a visible mindtrip.
