While his early work was inspired by American R&B artists including James Brown, Marvin Gaye and the Commodores, and British rock bands, Dlugosch began to incorporate hip-hop and funk influences in the late '80s. Shortly after agreeing to host a Saturday night show for N-Joy Radio in 1994, Dlugosch made his first forays into the recording studio. Working with New York producer Lem Springsteen, he scored hits with remixes of Moloko's "Sing It Back" and Hot 'N' Juicy's "Horny." Although his 1996 release, "Keep On Pushin'," became an international dance hit, "Hold Your Head Up High" did even better a year later. A video of the tune was placed in rotation on MTV and the European music TV station Viva.
