Soon, after few years of practice, he got his first chance in a small youth centre in his hometown. After this debut he played more often in local youth centres and he became a resident deejay in a small club.
In the year 1999 Outblast started producing music for the first time using just a simple pc. His first tracks were released by a small underground company on the small label Blast Records.
