In 1999 Montana compiled and mixed his first compilation on Black Hole Recordings, Space Age 2.0, together with DJ Tiësto. A year later, he takes Space Age 3.0 to a whole new level all by himself, and makes it perfectly clear he's capable of telling his own story. Follow-ups Space Age 4.0 and 5.0 were both released in 2001. A year later he mixes the official Concept CD for United Dance Company, the most innovate party organisation from Holland. In 2003 he mixes also the official Impulz Outdoor mix compilation and closes the party on mainstage together with big names like, Kevin Saunderson and Underworld.
Montana is a producer and remixer of great techno tracks as well, and released several records and remixes on Black Hole, Magik Muzik, Mealstrom (UK), Nebula (UK) and Byte. His remix of Sidewalk Technician - "Watch Dis", hits the dutch dancefloor charts for six weeks on number one, also his massive bomber remix of the famous Umek's cracker "Gatex" hits the european dance charts on number one. His single "Holla" was cracked out by every big named dj and rocked many dancefloors.
The UK dance scene started in 2004 for Montana by playing in UK's most sensational clubs and festivals like Cream, Cream Ibiza, the Gallery, Godskitchen, Goodgreef and Slinky. His first gig on Cream together with Fatboy Slim was one of the reasons that the UK opened up his arms for Montana and popped up in major dance magazines. He also played that year for the big UK festivals like Global Gathering and Creamfields.
