He’s known for his eclectic and wide-ranging taste, but even more so for searching out songs that are fresh and unique. To each set he brings a rough palette of musical ideas–the final journey is created as a response to what he is feeling in communion with the field of dancers–and always finds a way to integrate a few novel remixes of beloved classics.

What is Electro Swing for you ?
Electro Swing brings together the best of old school jazz and electronic production elements. It’s felt a lot more in the gut than traditional swing, which makes me “have to dance”. And it allows for weaving a dance set in-and-out of other electronic genres, like ghetto funk and glitch hop.
