Ridney's first break came in 1997 from local friend James Zabiela. After listening to one of Ridney's early mix tapes, he was asked to play a regular slot at James' night in a local Southampton venue.
Ridney began producing in early 2000. He featured in a handful of production groups before striking his first success - co-writing Your Love for Scarpi (in 2004).
Continuing to produce a number singles, he was invited to provide a producer guest mix for the Trophy Twins on their BBC Radio 1 show during October 2006.
