With the great response from Darkside Radio, the Westend crew noticed his turntable skills and signed him on as a West-End Representative.

Afterwards with the help of MC Docc and DJ Jesta in 2004 Downdrum Radio was created with hosted many special guests and local talent in the Toronto DNB scene *PsychoFreud, R Cola, Capital J, Marcus Visionary, Saigon, NC-17, and the list goes on* After climbing the amateur ranks in the Toronto DNB scene newfound clothing line Solid Apparel was beginning to hit the scene hard with its unique clothing design and promotional skills. After locking a gig at a Solid Apparel sponsored night Tim Mulvey (CEO Solid Apparel) took a liking to P.Dot.ILL and his partners in crime MC's Docc, and Zee and immediately signed them on board as Solid Soldier Representatives. Since Then P.Dot.ILL has began to surface as a Solid DJ with a vast variety of tune selection and the ability to smash any dance floor.

DJ BASILISK (ektoplazm.com) - Holy Joe’s
Basilisk spin’s an eclectic variety of styles covering all points of the psychedelic trance spectrum. Although most of my mixes tend to focus on the deeper sound of progressive psytrance, my sets vary from blistering psycore, darkpsy, and the more sophisticated side of full-on, all the way down to cold and mechanical techtrance, deep and funky progressive house, morning trance, psychedelic chill-out, and much more. He also has an enduring appreciation for the old school sound of mid-nineties Goa trance, which I will play out when the time is right (usually by special request).
