Whether through his renowned releases on Circus Records that still find their way into sets to this day or performances at iconic festivals around the world, he was one of the most impressive artists in the scene.
While his solo sets were always teeming with amazing tunes, some of the greatest memories catching Cookie Monsta spin came from the epic b2bs with artists and dear friends FuntCase, Doctor P, and 12th Planet.
