It’s a hybrid between a creative mess and organised business. Site plans, product information, phone charger and a dog leash are always near by.
What kind of music do you listen when you are working ?
Lately I’ve been pretty eclectic. Usually start the day off with some tribal house to wake me up then coast the rest of the day with some indie, chilltrap and dub. I’ve also been mixing in some future bass and minimal experimentation as well.
Do you have a way to organize your day to maximize your work ?
First thing when I wake up is to answer any emails from Europe to make sure I can catch my suppliers. Once I’m in the studio the day always starts off with phone calls and emails. Having a retail space with the studio makes the day exciting dealing with new and repeat clients.

Spending time with my puppy, Sofia.
