Having grown up in an environment where diversification in music is common and encouraged was the best experience of all. His experience, diversification and love for music became infused with his own love for both hip-hop and all music thereof. The SON ended up with quite a mixed spectrum of musical influence and background allowing him to create a fan base of followers on all musical levels. Today, this translates into sets where he picks apart and infuses together all the pieces of this music that he loves best: beautiful synth work, ethereal backdrops, brooding basslines, and occasional vocal hooks… all on top of a pronounced foot-shuffling hip-hop beat.
As a very active member of his local community, The SON is no stranger to the ups-and-downs of a small-town music scene.
