S3RL's first experience with digital music production came in 2000 with the release of Sony Playstation's Music series. The game allowed users to create original melodies via musical notation and had some sequencing and effects capabilities. Soon after, he developed a keen interest in the emerging Brisbane rave scene and attended his first event, Advent*jah, in 2001. Brisbane's affinity for the harder, bouncier genres of rave music had a definitive influence over the producer who began to focus more on hardcore and happy hard tracks. In late 2005, S3RL met Kevin Energy on his Freeformation tour and gave him a demo disc of 10 tracks he had created on Reason 2.3. Shortly after, Kevin Energy emailed to give good word over the demo and eventually proposed the release of the original production Transformers.
S3RL's first appearance on vinyl came in 2006 with Relentless Records as the A-side track alongside EFM-7's Raver Raver Raver. The release was notable as being the first ever hardcore production to come out of Brisbane. Still maintaining strong ties with DJ Kevin Energy, he is currently working on several projects for release in 2007.
Prior to gaining recognition as a DJ, S3RL was already well-known in the Brisbane rave scene as a highly skilled rave dancer. With some previous experience in gymnastics and trampolining, S3RL developed a style of the Brisbane stomp that included spins, drops and liquid dance moves. He became most acclaimed though for his aptitude in dynamic front and backflips, achieving some success in local amateur dance comps. .
