When the hardcore scene exploded in the UK in the early 1990s, he and his partner Eidris started promoting their own parties called Total Kaos every Friday in Leicester. They also put on one of the first large indoor parties at Donington Park in the summer of 1991. It was an amazing success and 6,000 people danced till dawn. Since then he has gone on to DJ worldwide.
SS is the co-founder of the Formation Records label, which has spawned over 30 sub-labels. The label would play a pivotal role for artists and producers such as Tango, John B, and Twisted Individual. The label was particularly prolific from 1991-1994 releasing many of breakbeat hardcores and jungles classics - such as The Psycho EP, the Colour Series, Rhythm For Reasons, Breakbeat Pressure and in 1995, his and the labels biggest track - the piano-theme-from-Love Story-sampling "The Lighter". It is a track that has remained incredibly popular and still continues to be played years on.
