As a DJ, SR-71 has collected and played all styles of dance music but preferred his favorite styles, which were Trance and Hard Dance, which propelled him through the South Western dance music community.

He taught himself to work his family organ, in which he layered songs from random music books laying around with the built in drum sampler. Since then he learned to play multiple instruments and even took on classical piano training in order to strengthen his knowledge of chords, keys and melody. He later descended into the underground EDM realm in 1998, attending his first shows feat Delta 9, Frankie Bones, Paul Johnson and so on. Understanding he loved his 4/4 he sought further into the EDM community, where he found...DnB. Shortly thereafter he purchased his first turntables and mixer, teaching himself to mix,intent on becoming a skilled DJ. It wasn't long before he was playing local shows in Minneapolis and found a venue which suited his style, The Quest. Nearly 6 years passed, in between his journey for sonic deliverance, he joined the Marines, which brought him to Japan. In 2007, he played at Club MnD @ WitchWork Countdown, where he was discovered by Takara Records. Takara took him to multiple other venues across the land including Nekke and Euphoria.
