New York-based arranger/producer Michael Moog debuted on the dance music scene with the release of "That Sound" in 1999 featuring a sample from the Spinners' dancefloor anthem "I'll Be Around." In the remixing field, the Jungle Brothers' "Freakin' You," from their 2000 V.I.P. album, became his first mix.
After being involved in a car accident, the promising producer decided to take some time off to practice meditation and spiritual healing. In 2001, "You Belong to Me" marked his return, followed by the 2002 single "R U Ready."
