The various influences can be heard in Michaels productions which are mainly focussed around the techno / melodic / minimal / tech house / deep house / electronica / ambient / soundtrack areas.
'Michael first got into dance music aged 10 listening with friends to the prodigy charly in the school playground on a rave generation compilation on a walkman and speakers. He started dj'ing at 14 playing old skool jungle drum n bass, early jungle crossover happy hardcore and old skool breakbeat hardcore. Over the years he has played many gigs in London for different big clubs including turnmills, Egg, Fire, the glasshouse, and lots of London bars all over London.
Michael's biggest achievement too date though comes in a December 2019 release after signing to the hugely respected and well known in the techno and electronica worlds Traum Schallplatten Records. The track is a deep dark mysterious minimal techno track called Placebo Paradox with haunting vocals from the singer songwriter Kara Square.
