Local Hero's releases

Veth Music released the album ‘The Future Sound of Paradise' at the end of 2010, written and composed by Local Hero on Sax. He is one of the few saxophone players in the world with his very own house album. The tracks are available at all major portals like Dance Tunes, Itunes, Audiojelly and Traxsource. After performing with a lot of dj's Local Hero decided to create his own music. With the tracks on the album he differentiates himself from other live artists, by telling a musically driven tale in which he defines new borders in the merging between house and sax. The album is inspired on artists like Deadmau5, Mark Knight, Sébastien Léger, Booka Shade and Trentemřller.

He played on this single of DJ Mark van Dale called "Stand up". This song was released in 2006 and  was played on Radio 538, Veronica, Slam FM, Deep FM and in lots of clubs.
