This artist has his roots in the synthwave genre and his nostalgic feelings towards the VHS-era are obvious, but he is mixing it up with a very modern, dirty and in-your-face sound that makes his music very unique and powerful. Opening for artists like Perturbator, Carpenter Brut, Danger, performing at Hungary's biggest music festival, the Sziget, and collaborating with names like Scandroid, Aesthetic Perfection, Daniel Deluxe, Tokyo Rose and Quixotic put him near the top not only on a national but on a worldwide level and we are happy to have him for his only UK appearance this year.
