Having played to large crowds at the likes of Ultra and Coachella, he sold out his all-night set at Koko in just fifteen minutes, making him the fast-selling show at the venue. He also created a big, big streaming moment when he performed at Mixmag live lab, and he now drops the eagerly awaited tune All Night Long on his new Up Soft series on his label, Up The Stuss."
