Here’s my submission for the @goldieawards. Drop a comment if you want to see me go to the finals! #goldieawards2018 #goldieawards #beatsbydanny I played everything live and triggered the beats off of the @nativeinstruments maschine. That’s the Komplete Kontrol s88 keyboard as well I’m playing live. It was fun coming up with how to showcase my production and displaying it via video. Hope you enjoy!
