He also mixed their debut album “Science Agrees” and last year he toured in support of The Cranberries as a member of D.A.R.K. He used to live in Berlin where he churned out hard-hitting tracks, before that he was in NYC duo The Glass and up to this date he’s amassed a massive resume with remixing and production credits for a vast array of artists including Spoek Mathambo, Todd Terry, Far East Movement, REM, Jagz Kooner, Howie B, Tittsworth and many more.

He has now relocated to Ireland where he recently performed an all hardware set on synths, samplers, drum machines and fx at the Body & Soul Festival. Fortunately, someone pressed the record button and we all are now able to hear this beauty of a set, listen and enjoy breaks, acid bleeps, housed up jams and banging left-field techno in a set done by a maestro. Also, be on the lookout for new releases from DJ Wool on My Techno Weighs a Ton and Soleid.
