Shady Park (Arizona) 26 EAST UNIVERSITY DR. TEMPE, AZ. 85281.Shady Park

This was my most recent show in the States and one of the best I’ve ever played. The crowd there are absolutely crazy, you’re right on their level so it’s easy to connect with them.

Beta (Denver) 1909 BLAKE ST., DENVER, CO 80202

Beta Denver

Amazing club with one of the best systems I’ve heard. Plus there’s an entire system in the booth for the DJ!

Halcyon (SF)314 11th ST., SAN FRANCISCO, CA 94103, USAHalcyon

The crowd in San Francisco are really responsive, and the lighting and vibe in this venue are second to none.

Grasshopper Underground (Detroit)22757 WOODWARD AVE, FERNDALE, MI 48220, USA

Grasshopper Underground

I played my first ever club show in the US here. Awesome dark little room with low ceilings and a great sound system.

Schimanski (New York)54 N 11th ST, BROOKLYN, NY 11249, USAschimanski

Pretty big room with the craziest lighting! The crowd is right in front of you so you can really connect with them.


My first US show and festival, and one of the most memorable! Fantastic festival with a diverse lineup and cool energy.

Spybar (Chicago)646 N FRANKLIN ST., CHICAGO, IL 60654, USA

Spy Bar

Another of my favourites! The best thing about this room is the low ceiling and a guy behind the bar who blows a giant air horn when it starts getting hot and sweaty!
