He was interested in hearing the arrangement of musical instruments, be it acoustic, electric, or percussion. In the beginning, he loved music, starting from the influences of punk music, hardcore, d-beat, crossover, stoner, dub, etc. One day he was introduced to deep house and techno by his former Boss. At the beginning of the short story, he finally began to explore various other genres. Currently, he often plays minimal house, tech-house, acid, and tribal.
