Emerging from the same stable as Duke Dumont
and the late-2000s London deep house scene, producer and musician Tieks first started to produce music at the age of 14.
Drawing from cinematic and classic '80s and '90s music influences such as Daft Punk
, David Bowie
, and Nile Rodgers
, his unique blend of house and pop electronic influences saw him release his breakthrough single "Sing That Song," featuring Celeste, in September 2014. The track subsequently featured on the U.K. advert for the British clothing line F&F, propelling him to nationwide attention.
