Music has always placed an important role in top hat’s life. He learnt to play the Cello at the age of 7, then the Saxophone and the Drums at the age of 11. Soon he was playing in different bands, playing a variety of styles including jazz and soul.
While studying at art college he became interested in Electronic music and soon took up DJing. This lead to many different gigs (including the birth of kia-aura), from clubs to festivals, and later lead to an interest in production.
Top hat has been living in Barcelona for 10 years now, and dedicates most of his time to music production and DJing.
