Like the polished acrylic finish of an LED dancefloor, his latest offering shimmers underneath the neon glow party lights, oozing with a colourful radiance by virtue of soaring string pads and sparkling vocal processing.

With an uplifting rhetoric and the self-assuredness to match, it comes as no surprise that his name dances on the tongues of industry professionals across the planet.
