Growing up the son of a blues guitarist, Austin was introduced to the drums at a young age, with influences like Stevie Ray Vaughan and The Alllman Brothers laying the initial foundation for his music.
In his teenage years, he first became exposed to electronic music, primarily the genres of house and trance. Austin’s focus gradually shifted from playing drums to producing with the goal of eventually making his own music.
After 10 years of developing his sound, Austin has signed with a number of smaller labels and found his niche in the darker side of progressive house. He has established a weekly mix series in his Nightride podcast, a forum to share unreleased work and his favorite tracks of the moment. Austin continues to emerge as an artist in the underground scene.
