Liam has performed for crowds up to 10,000 strong at street festivals in San Francisco like Love Parade (LovEvolution) as well as countless undergrounds and major venues across his hometown of San Francisco, the US, Mexico and Europe.
His high energy style includes electro, psytrance, breaks, dubstep and many other genres in-between.

His passionate and electric shows are infamous for igniting the dancefloor and creating a highly cinematic and evocative journey.
