My goals are to release a substantial amount of new music under The Relic and my other aliases, continuing to pursue my own artistic direction.

Are there any upcoming projects you would like to share?
Well, the new ARK release is currently in processing at the pressing plant, so a new vinyl is on its way as we speak!

What characterizes a typical The Relic performance?
In this case, I will be doing an ARK set, featuring a blend of 90’s style hardcore with influences from my past. Of course, numerous ARK tracks will be mixed in. A typical The Relic set is characterized by a blend of energy and various styles. I aim to tell a story, educate the crowd, and take them on a journey.
