“I have been lucky enough to be able to work on music a lot, which i still after 25 years in this tough business still feel very passinately about, I feel I am only limited by the amount of time I seem to get as a producer, sometimes its been a tough arduos passage, but then my passion in music gets renewed quite often, so it feels like it did in the early days, I’m in awe of certain productions still, producers who come out of nowhere and change your perspective on what melody is and really push the boundaries of music making. Promoting and creating visuals for various nightclubs, running websites & small record lables over the years is what I am most passionate about. So, I set out to amalgamate all of these skills together, with my first solo owned company Bakroom. Since the companies inception in 2013 we have collaborated with many renowned brands, including Corona, LEO Pharma, FM104, we featured on Sam Paganinis Mixmag Germany compilation, had our first Top 20 on Beatport last year in 2017, produced an Advert for Cinema and even had a hand in the sound design for the Dublin City Councils push for European City of Culture “Dublin You Are” campaign with my Paperheart and Code Bushido partner, dj/photographer Aidan Kelly.
He is now a co-founder of www.technoscene.eu and is currently working in a studio in Kildare on his various productions and musical projects;
