For good few years, Grooveliker's trademark were london style underground techno and acid techno. He played at many small, underground parties all over the country and also at numerous squat parties and so-called teqnivals. He is personally responsible for bringing many respected underground artists and famous international djs to Poland - due to his passionate approach towards music, personal contacts and dedication, Polish crowds saw for the first time the talents of e.g. Henry Cullen aka Dave the Drummer, Oxia, Rowland The Bastard, Leandro Gamez, Emerson, Cyber Steve, Cristian Varela, Julian Sandell aka Julian Liberator, Preach, Southsoniks, DDR, Tom Hades, Takaaki Itoh, Brian Sanhaji, Oliver Ho, Robert Natus, Alex Flatner, Mark Tyler, Jack de Marseille, Gizelle, Asem Shama, Ant, Pounding Grooves, Glenn Wilson, Alex Bau and many more. Among some other artists that thanks to his efforts have played in Poland once, twice, or, in some cases, several times, have been also e.g.
Chris Liberator, Holgi Star, Massimo, Lawrie Immersion, Chris Liebing, Gaetano Parisio, Rino Cerrone, Eric Sneo, Rafael Araujo, James Ruskin, Dave Shokh, Marco Remus, Zebedee and many more ... His musical taste has been constantly changing and getting broader. These days Grooveliker most willingly plays a mixture of various shades of tribal and funky techno, also sometimes adding a bit of progressive/ tech-trance/ trance/electro/electroclash or tech-house/house on top of it, or, if asked to do so, plays full sets in one of the mentioned styles. However, he is also still happy to play harder techno or acid techno if requested to do so, as he simply loves to play the tracks that he likes, no matter what genre reviewers call them. He's released a few CD compilations, including a dj-mix CD for Poland's leading clubbing magazine called "TECHNO PARTY" (1999), a CD compilation entitled "Techno Traxx - Trancemission BPM" (1998), a CD entitled "The Sound of the London Underground" (2001), a dj mix for LAIF magazine called "Funky Acid Techno" (2004) plus a few others.
