He pushes & throws electronic music events via MELT in Milwaukee, WI, is resident DJ & graphic designer for Destination F*cked, and Land of Sunshine.
THE DEMIX // HAVOC RUN
HAVOC RUN is the new 4 song EP of original music from THE DEMIX. Elements of experimental rock, metal, hip hop, soundtracks and noise are bent around each other and manipulated through his twisted electronic filter taking the listener on a journey that is both smooth & rough, light & dark; at times subtle & restrained, other times intense & explosive.
Based on a true story.

THE GHOST NETWORK • Act 1
It is night. Cinematic soundscapes and broken synths angrily collide with 808s and distorted drums on side A, while side B creeps quietly along before erupting into an intense apocalyptic assault. THE GHOST NETWORK 7” features original art work, hand-painted watercolor elements, stickers, plus bonus tracks and remixes via download.

"In an almost shamanistic manner, it was as if he were negotiating an exorcism between himself, his instrument and those assembled to witness his machinated grooves that hovered somewhere on the periphery of drum and bass and industrial, with the briefest of interludes to a more organic soulfulness (and with bits of vocal who-knows-what interspersed amid it all).
Exactly who was being exorcised of what became almost immaterial as Demix worked his magic into increasingly intense, nearly seamless sonic highs until they would drop into the echoes of the crowd's collective memory."
- Shepherd Express
"An eerily cinematic blast of unsettling, apocalyptic screeching and slippery, reptilian beats."
- The Onion AV Club
