His sound, often classified as "future" and "neon," burst with playful energy and brightness, akin to a Japanese anime soundtrack or something heard on a dancing video game. His debut single, "Rock U Tonite" b/w "Stoopid," was released in summer 2013, which led to an increase in remixes for other artists. He signed with Australian label Future Classic
) and released his Flash Drive EP in late 2015, which featured guest appearances by Lido and Baby. ~ Neil Z. Yeung, Rovi
