From there he learned to play percussion instruments of various types, including the didgeridoo, congas, djembe, nyabinghi drums etc. In the early 90,s he played in funk and groove oriented bands. In 1996 he started the venture towards loop based music, eventually leading to his owning a small studio and the self production abyss of electronic based music. Today he focuses on what is broadly known as bass music. Sattva has been producing bass music for many years, with numerous releases on Party Time Society and Desert Trax. He is best known for his Moombahton sets that always bring a smile to those on the dancefloor. We're honored to have him up to Taos for a guest appearance.

INFINITE SPLIT
From experamental whimsical dream worlds, to melodic sexy trap habbits. Infinite Split stays on the forefront of strange, bringing a unique blend of psychosis and philosophy in a form of sound. Science still has yet to classify this paradox as a dissociative, so is legal dew to massive black outs and common brain damage. Burrowed in the New Mexican landscape, Infinite Split remains, a wanderlust of soundscapes
