By the mid 90’s, he was experimenting with producing. After releasing a handful of tracks and remixes under different names, he began to cement his reputation locally in LA as a talent force. His musical journey took him to London, where the music scene and accessibility to European hot spots influenced his musical growth. Astro performed at various open mics, jams, and busking locations throughout London and Europe. He eventually took up residence in Australia, where he has been musically active ever since.

He has played alongside some of the industry’s biggest names. His high-energy sets as a rapper, singer, musician, and DJ have secured him a solid reputation worldwide as a multi-faceted, crowd-pleasing act.
