My Story

My journey commenced during the golden era of mp3.com, where I quickly rose to prominence as one of the top artists under the pseudonym Vanethian, even earning a feature in the renowned FLASHBACK2000 compilation. Since then, I have composed over 100 video game soundtracks, commercials, short films, and more. Currently, I am a Film Music Composer, with my first project being Hell Trip while also continuing to produce albums.

After the release of ‘Music in Your Soul‘ (an eclectic Electronic Music Album encompassing various styles and moods) and ‘Beyond Orchestral‘ (an instrumental odyssey of a hero venturing into a new world, facing battles, love, and redemption), I have returned with a fresh focus on Disco Music. My latest album, ‘Disco Vibes,’ was released on March 29, 2019, followed shortly by ‘Funky Sensation,’ a Funk Music journey traversing diverse styles and concepts, all bound together by a unifying Funk rhythm.
