I'm a DJ and Producer, from Weston-super-Mare. I create my own electronic dance music that is available to listen to on Spotify and Apple music. I have autism and have recently undergone chemotherapy for stage 2 cancer, during hard times, making music is an outlet and escape for me. I struggle to talk about my emotions but I can put then into a beat or a melody, most of my songs have a deeper meaning and message that fits in with how I've been feeling at the time of making it. One of my tracks 'One More Time' was made during the covid 19 Pandemic and is based around people feeling worried but ultimately coming together as a community to get through hard times. It was played on BBC introducing radio station. My main aim with my music is to bring people together to have a dance and a great time!
