He is best known for his 2001 hit "Booo!" featuring Ms. Dynamite, which peaked at number 12 on the UK Singles Chart[1] and number one on the UK Dance Singles Chart,[2] and for the tracks "Triplets" and "Things We Do" featuring Kele Le Roc (which itself samples "Triplets").[3]

In 1999, Sticky joined DJ/producer Jason Kaye's label Social Circles and has since worked with Kaye on many records, including "Booo!". Kaye is a member of breakbeat hardcore group Top Buzz.

In 2002, Sticky worked with RWD Magazine team members Matt Mason and Lex Johnson to record the theme song and music video to the first grime comedy series commissioned by Channel U, titled The Booo Krooo.[4][5]
