His releases on some of house music most elite and diverse labels (OM Records, Seasons, four play music, Farris Wheel, Gallery Music Group, Look At You, Alphabet, .dotbleep, Smooth Agent, Kompute, Roam Recordings, Industry Recordings, Panhandle, Cafe Del Mar Music) have sculpted a sound that clearly defines his frame of reference and at the same time outlines a cadence to his eclectic taste in Chicago House Music.
