However it was his first exploration in to club music with theTunnel EP on FutureBoogie the same year, that brought him to the attention of DJs worldwide, and landed. A feature review in DJ mag. His relocation to Sweden the same year kick started a alliance with Swedish house label Local Talk, where he has multiple releases and remixes, namely his most recent Candle Coast EP which gained support from Disclosure, Detroit Swindle, homework and top ranking spots in Resident advisor, DJ mag, Juno and countless DJ charts.

When it comes to performance, Crackazat's swirling Keyboard solos over improvised reworks of his production make every show truly unique. Things are looking only bigger and better for the rest of 2015, with his debut album dropping on Local Talk in March.
