“Sky Machine”: a deep dive inside my mind. This ride adventures a few of many things: beats, ambient, avant garde and some weird stuff as well. I’ve gathered a combination of some of my favourite pieces, among the tunes chosen: young tunes freshly composed and produced within a week, as to some I’ve been working on for the past year. Had the privilege to collaborate with some remarkable people, merging in and out along the way. This is my first official full album release, and the first of many yet to come. Do me a favor would you? Enjoy yourself.
