Biography:

“Crispy Bacon” from Laurent Garnier was a revelation for Ooze, who then discovered his love for electronic music. A second revelation came to him thanks to the Spiral Tribe and their live psychedelic and improvised music. Their style matched exactly to what he needed at that moment of his life. This took him to invest into some drum machines and some synthesizers, followed by several years of improvised live psychedelic techno sets. His passion for music with a big M, drives him towards deeper tones through house music, dub and techno. His purpose is to transmit feelings throughout his music.
