He started creating and producing music when acid house came on at the end of the eighties. In an interview he described the cause of his "infection" for electronic music and DJ-ing: "I'd never really liked house music up until then, but this was kind of different, because it had the hip-hop element through the breakbeats, it made total sense to me".

In 1998 he released "Post Punk Progression" which NME lauded as "what the Beatles would have sounded like if they'd invented jungle".

In 1999, Cut La Roc produced and released a mix album for the Ministry of Sound's FSUK imprint and performed and produced with 9 decks. He spent three years consistently DJing in Australia, the United States, Europe and Asia.

His DJ sets feature oldschool hip hop & G-funk to modern hip hop & trap. In 1995, Cut La Roc appeared on BBC One's Top of the Pops as the late electronic musician Wildchild on the original version of Renegade Master', before Fatboy Slim remixed and revived the song in 1998. In 2001, he produced along with Snow Patrol's Gary Lightbody the songs Fallen and Mishka. As well as Gary Lightbody co-producing both of the songs, he also provided the vocals to them. Cut La Roc held a four-year residency at the famous Big Beat Boutique and performed alongside fellow big beat musicians Fatboy Slim and Armand Van Helden.
