Heavily influenced by the searing, grinding sound of techno but very much into the rolling break beat sound. Raiden decided to meld the two together creating a fierce, yet deep sound solidly infected with dark elements of funk, truly creating a trademark style within the genre.

His arrival on the scene in 2002 was a result of meeting with Dj Friction and Nu Balance at Airtight Studios where he produced tunes for their label Transparent. Soon after he was approached by drum & bass juggernaut label Renegade Hardware, for whom he wrote the instant classic ‘Fallin’. Which was voted in the top 20 best tunes of the year in Muzik Magazine.

An arsenal of heavyweight tunes has followed, securing Raiden as one of the most respected producers on the scene today and it doesn't stop there. Raiden has recently gathered a group of like-minded producers to form the label OffKey, whose main goal is to bridge the gap between techno and drum & bass in a new, unique and pioneering format. All this on top of a heavy touring schedule shows that Raiden is one of the busiest and most talented players on the field.
