San Francisco native Templeton is relentlessly evolving and crafting his sounds. He currently lives in Los Angeles inspired by what the city has to offer him while carefully fine-tuning his skills as a producer, accomplished musician and DJ. His style draws inspiration ranging from the Italo Disco classics his parents played during his youth, to the catchy bass lines and minimalism of 90s House. His current love for Nu Disco and Indie Dance, matched with the influence of modern Australian and UK artists, infuses a distinct mood into his tracks. It’s immediately clear that Templeton is not a new face to production, with a keen sense for detail and professional polish on everything he releases.
Templeton topped his 2013 releases with a debut single ‘Search’ that landed a spot on Spain-based taste makers Y Este Finde Qué’s ‘Summer Compilation 2013’. The following year saw the young producer making waves with widely received remixes of Banks, Goldroom, Just Friends, Boys Get Hurt, and most notably Blondfire’s Walking With Giants, which received over 50k plays on Soundcloud and hit top 10 on the Hype Machine charts. He ended the year with a massive remix of The Soundmen’s summertime jam ‘Bermuda’ which also found its way on the Hype Machine charts. 2015 marks a breakout year for this budding producer with the much anticipated release of a brand new original in ‘Better Represent’ along with a host of remixes and collaborations to come.
