In 1996 he was recruited as the keyboard player for the band WOD, a local Chicago industrial outfit that made a lot of noise (literally) throughout the Midwest. The band toured and played tirelessly for the next 2 years serving as openers for many well known industrial and electronic acts such as Sister Machine Gun, Lords of Acid, Cirrus, Hanzel Und Gretyl, Sheep On Drugs, and Chi-town favorites 13MG, to name a few.
In mid-2003 Pulz-8 teamed up with Miami producer/DJ Kirill and recorded a track for his label, Project Cuba. Under the alias Kirill vs. The Surrogate they released their remix of "Cuban E-Fusion" from the Cuban band Sin Palabras. This record was well received by DJs in both Chicago (for its deep Chicago-style bassline) as well as Miami (for its Afro-Cuban flare). The track features live "Yoruba" vocals and amazing percussion from members of Sin Palabras. The single found its way onto Chris Fortier's Balance Promote Group Chart that September and into the sets of djs across the globe.
A lot of '06 was spent laying low and workin' hard in the studio. Getting back to his industrial roots, Pulz-8 collaborated with legendary Chicago DJ Jeff Moyer and Chris Randall (Sister Machine Gun) to release the WTII (Wax Trax II) 5th Year Anniversary CD compilation. This release features some of the more influential industrial acts of the last few years. Check www.WTIIRECORDS.com for more info.
