While I was fortunately raised by parents with rather good music tastes of the normal variety, my first exposure to various types of electronic music was through the Bemani game Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) at my local arcade. There was just something about the high-energy rhythms that spoke to me on a profound level.
Around late 2010, I was introduced to Allkore through their very first Allkore Riot Kontrol event by my friends. I immediately found myself in a world I never knew existed. Through Helblinde, JAKAZiD, and eventually TANUKI and Rhythmics, I became utterly obsessed with learning how to play like them—to sound like them. I wanted to not only listen to the great music they made, but control and manipulate it just as they had. The rest is history.

I primarily spin UK Hardcore and J-core. Lately, I’ve been playing a lot more Future Bass, Jersey Club, and Anison. Someday I’ll be good enough for MOGRA. (笑)Modern Controller Era Sets (2018 - Present)
