2020 feels like a momentous time. Not only is it the start of a new decade, but it’s been a year of intense global and personal changes. As much as I am looking forward to the future, I'm reflecting back and taking stock of my accomplishments.

To mark the occasion, I’ve compiled dual retrospective releases, covering 2002 - 2020. I’ve just launched a preorder, but the official release date is 3 July 2020, coinciding with Bandcamp’s Artist Day, wherein Bandcamp waives their service fees and artists receive the full profit.

This first collection is 20:02 BODY, a reverse chronological survey of my more physical music aimed at the dancefloor. I’ve included some new previously unreleased tracks as well as a couple obscurities, in addition to my personal favorites from each of my releases, going all the way back to my very first 12” single, Secrets, originally released by Forte Records.

The second collection, 02:20 MIND, provides a counterpoint. It’s a survey of more headphones-listening material, whether ambient and drone-heavy or intricate sound design and beatmaking, but far removed from the dancefloor. It also includes some unreleased and new tracks that I’m happy finally have a home.
