It was not long before his residency at G Martinis...Tokyo's freshest club, that he created a demand for his DJ Talents. Promoters from all over Tokyo were keen to promote his musical message. His deep get down vibe coupled with sublime mixing techniques were heard at some of Tokyo's finest establishments including Club Asia and the renowned Space Lab Yellow.
