Sev signed to Ninja Tune Records in 2014 and released debut album "Universes" in 2015.

In 2016 Sev took a hiatus to record and self release his sophomore album "Live from the Other Side". In 2017 he performed the album as main opening support on the Flying Lotus 3D Tour.
At the start of 2018 Sev released a two part EP titled “Sev Was Here", to celebrate his official leave from hiatus. Later he released his personal oldies inspired third album "Choir Boy".
