The official MASCHINE Studio performance video with Jeremy Ellis was shot in front the elysium gradient wall. This was defining moment in my artistic journey as it was the first time I witnessed mastery on pads in person.

Behind the graident walls was "Luv Ü Studio" This room was where I began to start pushing the limits of MASCHINE and in turn live performance with electronics. This video highlights two important steps in dance music. It steps outside the formula of four on the floor
