His vast musical knowledge and experience combined with the technical abilities and showmanship of a World Champion Turntablist creates highly unique and eclectic sets, always loaded with lots of bass, dynamics and energy, with styles ranging from house, tech-house and tropical to hip hop, dubstep and dancehall reggae.
