Later he landed an EBM-Club smash as BODY 11, fronted the electro-punk outfit Put Me On The Guestlist, produced various commercial projects for the major label BMG including co-writing with Giorgio Moroder. In the 90s he composed under several monikers including Synon, Timstar, Clone, Schizo, Tec, Team Stereo and Formant, most of the material has not been released then. In the high time of techno his track „(I Want) More Noise“ made public as Circuit on the suck me plasma label created an unreal counterpart to the then current club sound. The same happened years later with the track „Back In Time“, originally released as ANT on Marlboro Music. In 00s most of his unreleased work of the 90s has been made public as New Formants available in all digital music services.
