Examples of previous work are below:
Hold my hand: Dorothy of the day
Dorothy of the day is a remarkable artist with a 1930s cinematic vibe. This song captures that old timey dance feel and the lovely lilt of her vocals, with a downtempo old school hip hop beat.

Break: Yo Grabo¡ (featuring Mian Tiara)
Recorded in bandung – in the hills of Indonesia, this track combines a tough seventies soul vibe with a spoken word / hip hop feel. Tiara’s vocals are powerful and compelling…
TJ Eckleberg: guitars, spoken word vocal; production and mix. Mastered by Salz Mastering
Shock the Monkey (Lonely Monkey remix): Peter Gabriel
A remix of the eighties classic, courtesy of Real World Recordings
True Get Rid: The Bee Ho Gray
Jan Linder – the force behind ‘The Bee Ho Gray’ – wanted to conjure echoes of Kurt Cobain for a German Television movie. This track – although drawing on a more contemporary aesthetic, nails that ‘Something in the way’ pathos.

Passport: Delboy Wilson
Delboy came to Berlin to work with me last December, and we hunkered down for ten days in the old GDR radio rooms – Tricone Studios at The Funkhaus. layered guitars, steamy vocals and a gorgeous lyric defined this soulful indie track.

something beautiful: Nic Danta’s Leadlight
Nic Danta is a poet and keen observer of intimate moments and the way they play across ordinary days. This track harnesses a crazy horn section and a post-Cure sensibility to find a genuinely generous new kind of cool.

Yellow Skin: TUFA (Wei-Zen Ho)
This is an older track – From the groundbreaking and celebrated independent lp femalia by left field spoken word and tone poet Wei-Zen Ho – 2003. Wei Zen received national airplay on radio National in Australia. Her work is cool, angular and surprising.
