His rework of Domased Electronicas "Dewpoint" was his first trance track that has made it to Beatport's Trance Top 100. Encouraged by its success he's finally decided to head towards his own trance productions.
In 2010 he started to collaborate with Michael & Levan and Stiven Rivic, with whom he's been friends already. Soon after their agreement Styller's first official EP - "What Happen Once" was released, followed by more remixes. Massive male vocals in "We Will Fade" by Michael Burns a.k.a Blue Haze made it the one, he's the most proud of. In 2011 Styller released his second EP - "Escape Velocity" - containing vocals of his friend Suzanne Isis.

One of my biggest dreams regarding music came true. The dark sound of Coldharbour is exactly, what I've always been going for". Markus Schulz has also selected two of Styllers tracks for his upcoming and long-awaited compilation Los Angeles '12. Right after the LA'12 compilation Coldharbour Recordings released the "All That Remains / Quantum Mechanics" EP, with excellent remix by Basil O'Glue, which immediately invaded all relevant Trance charts. It's been followed by another LA'12 track - remix of Danilo Ercole's "Quasar" a month later - in April 2012 .
Styller and Basil O'Glue founded their own label - Saturate Audio - in September of 2012. Their head off track - Saturated - was heavily supported by many of the largest DJ's on the scene.
