He has consistently delivered a style so unique that it sets him far ahead of the pack, evident in both his unmatched experimentations in synthesis and his trademark finely crafted percussion which is as evident in both his heavy but stripped down sound of today as well as the relentless amen barrages of the past.

Opening the year with the release of ‘BINARY 004’ on CRITICAL MUSIC, he unveiled to the world a new strain of his sound – .

This was followed by his induction into Noisia’s revered INVISIBLE RECORDINGS imprint with ‘COTTON PUNCH’ and ‘TWILIGHT STATE’, as well as the release of his ‘FORCE BLACK’ EP on the legendary BAD TASTE RECORDINGS.
