SK’s fascination with technology led him to become the first World Looping Champion in 2011. Frustrated with the limitations of commercial looping equipment, he taught himself software engineering and developed an innovative customised live looping instrument, unveiled at a TEDx Talk in 2016.
Inspired by the freedom of this new machine, SK has unlocked a new approach to his solo production, singing and songwriting, with two EPs planned for release in 2017 followed by his debut studio album.
