#Quote
1 After having 'experimented' with techno, electro, house, trance (the real one!!!), break-beat, jungle, drum'n'bass, trip-hop, down-tempo, ambient, fusion, world, jazz, rock, traditional music...I see myself as a 360 degree producer/composer/musician who loves creating 'moments'. Driven by the need of finding emotional spots and conveying them through my compositions, something that will make a difference. It's nice to dream...sometimes dreams become reality.
2 I have been working hard since I moved to London in 1996 to define my sound, and learned a great deal about life, music, the World (well different than the one described in my school books!)...Now I feel ready to move to a new phase of my creative life. [about his future]
