From than onwards, he produced several mainstream hardcore sets for big online radio stations and small hardcore events monthly. Later on, he experimented with other styles in the Gabber Scene. Nowadays, Xerxes is busy with Industrial Hardcore and Crossbreed. 2012 was the year he started his own podcast called "The X3Cast" which holds the best and new Crossbreed and Industrial Hardcore records.
