He has released 7-inch singles on Static Caravan Recordings and Mold Recordings, along with Shudder To Think singer Craig Wedren.

Mast produced and co-wrote under his alias as E*vax, the track "$100 Bill" which is performed by rapper Jay-Z, as the opening track for Music from Baz Luhrmann's Film The Great Gatsby in 2013.
