He worked with rapper MC Mell'O' on his early work, including the album Thoughts Released (Revelation I) (Republic Records, 1990), and also produced the Demon Boyz second album Original Guidance: The Second Chapter (Tribal Bass, 1992). Both records are considered[by whom?] landmarks in the early days of British hip hop. He has continued to be active in the music industry, and is held in high regard[by whom?] for his scratching and remixing skills. He has remixed tracks for De La Soul, Monie Love, House of Pain, Bomb the Bass, KRS-One and Carleen Anderson.

He came first in the 1997 UK DMC, second in the European ITF finals and third in the 1997 World DMC. With his crew, The En4cers, he took out the 1999 UK DMC Team competition and went on to place fifth in the world that year.[citation needed]

He also released mix albums under the "DJ Pogo Presents the Breaks" on the Harmless label.
