The duo's first effort, "The Flute Song" caught the attention of Dubtribe's Sunshine and Moonbeam Jones. Dubtribe remixed the track impeccably, and released the remix on the Imperial Dub label. Blackstone and Amit launched "House of Stone Records" in November 1998, and released "Johnny Mojo's Theme," their first release under the Disciples of Johnny Mojo moniker. In 1999 they renamed the label "Tarantic Records," and have continued producing and releasing house music since.
