This Belfast-born, London-based DJ and producer only gave up his day job in 2010 – following a PhD in computational biology, he'd been researching genetics at UCL - but has already amassed an impressive catalogue of melodic techno and electronica releases and remixes.
Much has been made of his background, probably because his breakthrough releases were named after mathematical theories and he is collaborating with iPad software engineers Liine on a music-performance and generation tool inspired by his work in systems biology.
But there's nothing dryly theoretical about his music, which is characterised by organic structures and lush harmonic textures; grandiose, swirling breakdowns that are about that same sense of awe of the infinite that you get from star-gazing. His show is often accompanied by digital animations – but at festival gigs, you'll get to gaze at the firmament itself.
