Soon afterwards, he joined the Touchdown Soundz crew and played at venues such as Cougar Pinks, the exclusive Rex Club (at Piccadilly Circus) as well as a few residencies. After leaving the Touchdown Soundz, he created the Ambas’sadas with Slybee, working together as a DJ duo until 2013. He has deejayed in other countries including Zimbabwe, South Africa and France.
