Afterwards he started Writing Music Similar to what inspired him to Dance, and hooked up with his childhood buddies 2 in a room who were enjoying success from their massive hit "Wiggle it" they in turn hooked Shock on to a few people in the business such as Oscar Poche and Roman Richardo.

Working with these guys he got to record "2 top ten Billboard Hits" "Do Ya Wanna Dance" and "I Wanna".
