I love to create unique and genre combining musical themes and songs. I employ an unorthodox style of sampling and resampling (only royalty-free) music and sometimes eccentric sounds. I enjoy post-producing intricate details in songs to accompany the vocalists' ability and quirks. I strive for uniqueness and the organic flow of creating.
