He began his journey in dance music as a raver in the 04-08 trance era while studying Economics at University of Texas in Austin. During his studies he was blessed with the opportunity to travel and rave in places like Amsterdam to discover the underground dub and bass scene and Miami to explore WMC and UMF. Shortly after he made a transition from his rap music background and began DJing techno and trance music in 08.
After college he attended audio school in 2010, received his audio engineering certifications and began his 15k+ hours in the studio. His first self release in 2011 was a minimal techno release. He won support from Todd Terry winning a remix contest in 2012 before venturing into progressive, trance and psychedelic sounds for some years.
In 2017, while living outside of LA, he decided to return to his techno roots. Start of 2018 he launched his Chemtrailz alias. Since then he has released a number of EPs and singles on labels like Autektone Dark (top 20 Hard charts peaking #13), Funk’N Deep, The Yellowheads’ Reload and Fatima Hajji’s Silver M. During this time he gained a bit of prominence playing and throwing parties in the Los Angeles underground warehouse and desert party scene- where he developed much of his deep, hard, hypnotic techno sound and attracted his first concentrated following.
More recently in 2020 after returning to Texas, during the pandemic, he won favor from Suara in winning a remix contest for Coyu’s rave banger Descontrol- slated for release on a 4 track EP beginning of 2021 with Flug, Temudo and Jay Clarke.
He also won a second contest in 2020, in collaboration with James Sanchez aka Amuck(LA, Technoids), landing two remixes for Ayako Mori; scheduled for release Dec 9 2020 on PTR Berlin.
During the 2020 Lions Gate Portal he was compelled to launch his own imprint Terra Novae.
When he is not in the studio or playing he is usually growing plants or snowboarding. To support his music journey he has been a master horticulturist for the most part of 15 years. Lately he only consults horticulture part time to make more time for his art.
