"Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything."
My experiences with a wide array of sounds has allowed me to play with an open mind. I like to bring the individual listener on a journey, marrying a myriad of genres to achieve a little dancefloor delirium.
There are instances where I'd like to share that oh so sweet jazz, funk, disco & house choons to get you groovin like its Christmas mornin. Then there are days when I find myself easing the listener into a subtle hypnosis, with a selection of deep, melodic and progressive techno. Legend also has it that when the stars are aligned, I might even invite you on an odyssey deep into the mind, with a relentless pulse of hard hitting beats.
So strap on your most comfortable pair of dancing shoes, grab yourself a Picante de la Casa, and allow me to guide you on an aural encounter beyond the senses.
