Babel started going to parties where EDM was played predominately in the late 90's. The first thing that he noticed was the artist , and how the music captivated the crowd. In 1998 he decided to purchase his first mixer and turntables. First starting with breaks and electro trying to create a unique blend of Detroit Electro and the west coast funky desert breaks. After a year he discovered Jungle when a friend suggested a record store in Ann Arbor called Dubplate Pressure. In 1999 Babel released a "Junkyard" Hip-Hop/Jungle fusion mix under dj Alias on Silent Records and was distributed through Long Range. The Devil May Care mix cd opened up consistent bookings within the Hip-Hop community for Babel. He was performed with artist such as Binary Star, Slum Village, Common Sense ( Common), Paradime, D12 and hosted the second room to the 99 Detroit Blaze Battles. In 99 Babel, Bobo, and dj Jared created The Interchangeable Turntable Oddities one of few turntablist bands in Michigan at the time.

In 2000 Babel linked up with old friends "Fuzzy" Chris H., Danny "D-Low" I., Liz "Evil Deeva" M., and TJ "Ruffneck" Y. who was pushing there new crew D.S.P. (Dark Steppaz Platoon) in Arizona. After spending a few years in Arizona and building with the collective Babel went back to Hip-Hop and the Jungle mash-up. In 2001 he joined up with a local AZ group known then as The Collective shortly after the name would change to The Society of Invisibles. In 2003 Babel moved to Chicago,IL and took a short hiatus. After a couple years he started going to local loft parties and dnb weeklies in the Chicago land area. In 2004 he started to write music again and dj.
