Inspired by the likes of Flume, Porter Robinson, Oshi and Mr. Carmack, Veer has loved experimenting with design, film and music and has been producing since he was 9. He likes to make sounds never heard before, without restricting himself to any particular genre, making everything from super chill, ethereal and feel-good tracks to heavy, R&B inspired bangers.
