+DOME, Seekae’s immaculate 2011 release, never really got the recognition it deserved. But I suppose when we’re dealing with glitchy IDM electronica, the record probably ended up punching above its weight in the Australian music arena.

In the meantime he featured widely in collaborations with Hodgy Beats, Kurupt, Just Blaze and Madlib, to name only a few.
