1991 - 1994: Early Career - One of the Founders of Underground UK Hard Trance
M-Zones started his DJ career originally playing Italian House Techno which lead to him playing Trance and Hard House in late 1991 at the now legendary Doncaster Warehouse. He quickly built up a good reputation, and was admired for his original track selection and his upfront style. M-Zone was soon well known as an influential figure within the UK and European Hard Trance and Hard House scene.

M-Zone was signed to Pirate Records and made his first Trance production. He also introduced the UK to Bonzai Records, by booking their debut UK Live Performance at the Doncaster Warehouse, and also brought DJ Timo Maas to play in the UK for the first time, who later became a Massive Figure in the scene.
In late 1995, M-Zone founded his own record labels UK44, TYT Records and Forever Forward, and many started to name him as the original creator of the UK Hard Trance scene. The first releases on his newly started labels were immediate hits in the Hard Trance scene, and were important labels for the next 2 years releasing many of the genre's biggest tracks.

Since then, The UK44 record label has ended, the warehouse closed and M-Zone has launched new projects on his own different record labels including Warning Records. He still proceeds to be one of the forefront DJ and Producer in the Hard Trance and Hardstyle circles and has been responsible for progressing the scene's to where they are today.
