“I am always inspired by so many different genres and never know which direction I should go. How serious should I take this album over the next? After one night of contemplation and questioning I realized that ‘analogue’ is not one album.. ‘analogue’ is my albums. ‘analogue’ is my notebook. I want my music to be personal. I am not  creating albums to create albums, though I am documenting a point in my life. ‘analogue’ is whatever I want it to  be, whatever I am feeling at that moment, in whatever state i may be in. With this said, all of my releases will be  released, ‘analogue – 1’, ‘analogue – 2’, ‘analogue – 3’, etc. Until I am unable to create on a daily basis, my life, musically and personally, will be that final ‘analogue’ album.”
