Other releases on Life and Death, Permanent Vacation, Afterlife, his eponymous label Locked Groove records and Speicher were met with just as much critical acclaim.
In 2019 Locked Groove finally released his long awaited debut album on Hotflush.
Sunset Service is the amalgamation of a diverse and closely studied musical past, incorporating influences that are dear to the artist, whilst retaining a focus on the singularity of his own unique aesthetic.
