Two years later he had his first residency at 'Club Raffles' and 'Sinners in Heaven' in Amsterdam. In those days his style could be described as a mixture of US garage and UK soulful house.
D-Rashid felt inspired by DJ's, producers and artists like Kenny Dope Gonzales (Masters At Work) , DJ Spen and Todd Terry. It was then, when he started to get interested in Latin orientated house music. D-Rashid fell in love with Latin House music and it was only natural for him to mix his performance with live a percussion show of Andrei Russo.
