He exploded unto the Soca scene with his groovy song "Sugary Waistline" in 2010 which took him all the way to the Finals of Antigua’s 2010 Soca Party Monarch Competition, which was his first time entering the competition and first time doing a Soca song in his music career. Within one week of posting the song on Youtube it received over 18,000 plays. “Sugary Waistline” also received the award for best Soca music video from CariVibez in 2011. Drastic has been #1 on the Reverb Nation website in the Nation of Antigua & Barbuda. Over the past two years he has worked with other heavy hitters in the music industry such as Sean Kingston, Spragga Benz, Honorebel, Jemere Morgan [of the Morgan Heritage Family] and Jah Cure with whom he and B.V teamed up with to record the song "Kiss Me Girl". The official music video for “Kiss Me Girl” landed on the #1 spot on Tempo’s Cross Caribbean Countdown & #6 on MTV Base Africa. A number of his other music videos have made it to #1 on Tempo including “Life II Live” [with BV], “So Seductive” [with BV], and “Blasting Away” [with J.Nation and LogiQ Pryce of Them Island Boyz].

He has already started off 2013 with the release of a remix to Rihanna's "Diamonds" featuring upcoming female singer out of Jamaica Kim Nain and is produced by Jus Bus [J.Nation].
