In 2014, Lewis was among the 1% of successful applicants who participated in the Tokyo RBMA Academy, where he recorded singles ‘Lights’ & ‘Say Ok’ with Japanese pop artist, TIGARAH. He has since returned regularly to record works in their Shibuya studios.

Over the course of his time with NLV RecordsLewis has released two solid EP’s in 2016’s Indoor Rainforest & 2019’s Air Condition. His collaborations on the label tend to be long-lasting, with a few works under his belt with TIGARAH & Melbourne-based fragmented-pop artist, Jordan Variant.

As a sound designer, Lewis has been commissioned to compose accompanying audio for video installations at ACMI Melbourne, VR environments for the Miller Design Lab, Snapchat lenses, & more. He is currently completing a Master of Fine Art by coursework at RMIT University.

Now with new music in the process of being mixed and mastered, 2022 is shaping up to be another busy year for this Melbourne DJ / Producer.
