Known for constantly shifting styles, his most recent album, 2022’s Magic Pony Ride is an album full of joyful, melodic, jungle-inspired music. The album is inspired by a horseback trip to Wales that the producer took, where the album captures the freedom and joy of riding Icelandic horses across snowy landscapes.

With songs ‘Picksing’ and ‘Elka’s Song’ dedicated to his daughter, while ‘Galope’ is in memory of his father who passed a few years ago, Magic Pony Ride is as reflective and meditative as it is joyful. At his show at Miscellania, he’ll be supported by Anuraag and Kassie.

It’s gonna be legendary. Grab your tickets before they sell out by heading here.
