"There is no better feeling than creating my own sounds and then seeing a full dance floor rip it up!"
He continued: "Going from one of the biggest TV shows in the world to signing a multiple track record deal with Love & Other records is the best feeling in the world.
"That being said I’ve put in a hell of a lot of hard work and it’s finally coming to fruition but I’m just really excited for everyone to hear my music and to play to people around the world.
