The complete year has been a highlight for me, I’ve released about 11 tracks & just launched a new venue in my hometown for all the party lovers.

I travelled a lot this summer! Gigs in Ushuaia & travelling through all of France gave me several unforgettable moments.
Happy memory from this winter :
I had been working on a project for the past 3 years, which just came to life in my home town. Chevron is a lounge/nightclub for everyone that loves good food & dance music. This is definitely my highlight for the winter.
