He was initially interested in metal and punk-pop until his late teens, when electronic dance music caught his attention.
He got involved with DJ’ing and gained a following at a local club.
Pearce released his first official remix in 2012 and later that year released his first single, “What I Might Do,”. The song samples Anthony Hamilton’s “Cornbread, Fish, and Collard Greens,” was a quick success on the club level before appearing in the U.K. mainstream chart. It became a Top Ten hit the following October.
