The style provokes classic house chords carried by deep basslines and funky riffs, with vox samples from the likes of Q-Tip, Bob Marley, and The Chili Peppers that prove hauntingly perfect. His most recent single “Ghetto” is below, along with with my other favorites from his so far. Grab these below and follow this dude, let’s see where he goes…

FUN FACT: The original was produced by Sinden for MB’s Cosmic Angel Mixtape!
