Hitting Common Thread in 2016 with The Female Medical College of Pennsylvania and then Pinkman in 2017 with a string of releases, and later releasing his Split EP on London’s Brokntoys. These outlets would become the platforms for his early releases which were recognized as instant hits in several charts and clubs throughout Europe and beyond.
