    'J'ai Essayé' has a long and complicated history, and even though it finally got released at the start of 2013 I had made the record about two and a half years earlier. Had it not been for certain circumstances occuring way back in 2010 though, I may have had to wait a lot longer for my first full release of any sort so it is definitely the track that sparked it all for me.

    The original plan was to release in the summer of 2010 but through no fault of my own this never happened... at the time the task of finding it a label was out of my hands and I was waiting on an opportunity that never materialised. In the meantime I sent it to a couple of people I knew through work who happened to be fairly well known DJs.... shortly after I found out that one - Sandy Rivera (Kings Of Tomorrow) had played it in Bulgaria to huge reactions, and shortly after that I also found out that Sasha had played it at Warehouse Project in Manchester, and Ministry of Sound in London across the same weekend... in fact the MOS set was posted on his Soundcloud and eventually hit over 70,000 listens!

    Off the back of that mix being posted, not only did I receive a huge amount of support from listeners around the world, but I also managed to hook up with Stripped Recordings who went on to release my debut single 'Power'. When I was finally able to take back control of 'J'ai Essayé' Stripped released it as a single a year later and it finally saw the light of day with remixes by ThermalBear and Richie Hawtin's 2012 breakthrough DJ Dexter Ford (DJ Mag).

    Support from Sasha, Maceo Plex, John Digweed, Richie Hawtin, Hernan Cattaneo, Terry Francis, Sandy Rivera, Nick Muir and many more
