Following this success he was booked at events all over the Midlands, such as the legendary Eclipse.
Having gained a name as a DJ with a style of mixing that was unique to the newly-born rave scene, other promoters such as Dreamscape, Helter Skelter, Obsession, Fantasia and Perception included Sy on their line-ups. As the music evolved, Sy naturally progressed from hardcore to happy hardcore. Club work over the country and abroad helped to establish his reputation as the Scratchmaster.
