Pushing his own boundaries, he seeks out film and visual art, specifically the allegory of street art as well as the aforementioned musicians. The resulting sound takes him close to the likes of Lemaitre, Petit Biscuit and Madeon while maintaining his individuality.

With searing electronics matched to intimate melodic touch, the producer explores the joy that is felt as the seasons move towards the warmer months. Using hypnotic melodies and buoyant beats, Uppermost provides balance to his own work with heavier synths that flashback to his past rock-centric influences.
Speaking of ‘When The Birds Start Singing’, Uppermost shares, “Hearing the birds in the early morning truly warms my heart and inspires me. It feels like they are celebrating the sun coming back while the sky is still fully dark.”
