Initially formed as darkspringxl, back in 2002, I started creating mash ups before moving on to doing lots of Depeche Mode remixes, but in 2010 I allowed my creative juices to flow and haven't looked back since.
As you can see from the list of remixes on this page I jump across genres.

I think of my style of remixing as 'recycling music and mixes', to create something new. I'm a huge fan of the classic 12" singles of the 1980's and remix services such as Razormaid, DMC and Hot Tracks.

I am open to collaboration on any projects you may have so please get in touch.

Any feedback is also welcome.
