He's not confined to one style, genre, or influence but the analog approach is important in all that resonates with him. His style and tastes are diverse and developed.
You’ll hear an abstract soundscape accompanied by a sweet melody recorded and tweaked from field recordings. His influences are rich, everything from hardbop Jazz to Rnb classics of the 60’s to electronica from South London. There are elements of electronic experimentation as well as instrumentation that asserts itself onto a solid rhythm section with rich bass and vinyl samples.
