This track took pride of place in Apple Music’s Dance XL playlist for over 3 months, as well as garnering support from some of the world’s biggest dance music DJ’s. “I never aim to create a specific genre of music, I make music based on how it makes me feel rather than what it ‘should’ sound like. Emotion is what connected me to music in the first place, so if I get those excitement butterflies when I finish a track, even if I make just one other person feel the same way, then I’m satisfied that my job is done.”
