At age 17 he got his first decks and began making noise in the basement. Not too long after this and before his 18th birthday DJ Tanner found himself with a show at the campus/community station of CJSR at the University of Alberta. He and co-host Sunny Grimez then proceded to take over the ratings spot on the station killing Saturdays for the next 4 years.  

Around the same time Tanner began holding down club nights with his crew "The Famous Players". The most notible being "Busting Chops" Sponsered by Circa at Lush and the legendary "Digital Underdogg" at the Black Dog. During this time Tanner brough such acts as Swollen Members/ Klever/Spictacular/J smoke/Gene Ferris/Dj Heather to name a few.  

In 2000 Tanner moved to Vancouver and picked up where he left off in Edmonton. Starting at the Urban Well Tanner began DJing with DJ Arems and DJ Akshun and forming the group "Faction Sound Crew".
