By the end of the 1980s it was all about the UK Rave / dance scene, this started a musical revolution that spread across the globe. It was from that scene the next step of his musical journey began.The Prodigy. Starting in 1990 he had a ten year whirlwind journey, going from from Raves to Rock stadiums,headlining the biggest music festivals in the world and touring with some of the best artists of a generation. Picking up new influences and inspiration throughout the whole experience.
In 2000 he left the band,concentrating on his DJing and his own productions, Releasing an album under the name Flightcrank before moving on to vocal duty on two albums for UK artist Hyper, a Smash Hifi album followed .
