He has collaborated with Thom Yorke, Four Tet, Zomby and The Bug, and been sampled by Rosalia in her 2022 single Candy.

His work also features heavily in the films of documentary maker Adam Curtis, who has said ” He’s got it, it’s the mood of our time that we’re waiting for. He’s way ahead of our time, an epic emotional artist.”
