The world of electronic music is like an undiscovered sea despite the big number of very well-known DJs and producers. The beauty of it hides in different places like the genres and sub-genres, even though it sometimes gets confusing. It also hides in the diversity of sounds and beats, but when you get to understand all the above, you take a deep breath, dive even deeper, and decide to discover artists, young talents and weird names.

When we tried to describe his music, we failed to turn the sounds into words, but then we stumbled upon a comment on his RA account that says it all.

The French DJ remixed many tracks for Korridor, Mod21, Cio D’or and many others.
Isolate frequencies says it all :
VII – Jana Sleep – Techno
Being part of Hypnus Records, same record label as BLNDR, she is as awesome as him.
