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.

He signed with Australian label [url=https://www.discogs.com/label/31970-Future-Classic]Future Classic[/url] ([url=https://www.discogs.com/artist/2384436-Cashmere-Cat]Cashmere Cat[/url], [url=https://www.discogs.com/artist/2384511-Flume]Flume[/url]) and released his Flash Drive EP in late 2015, which featured guest appearances by [url=https://www.discogs.com/artist/1989736-Lido]Lido[/url] and [url=https://www.discogs.com/artist/3583638-Cosmos-Midnight]Cosmo's Midnight[/url].
