With various tracks being given an airing at local music night "The Sesh", with no negative response, abeZilla decided to start cementing his style further in the niche he had carved for himself in the musical landscape of Hull. "Failsoft" was followed by a slow trickle of free EPs (the SCAM cycle) which have seen abeZilla go from strength to strength, with "Covert Operation" being one of the local favourites. abeZilla was determined to get a name for himself on not only the local demo circuit, but the live and global internet ones as well, and so got working in the studio to produce an album which could stand up for itself. All the while, abeZilla was getting his name (and music) about with the help of sites like MySpace, Facebook, Soundcloud and Reverbnation. It was through Reverbnation that a conncetion with DJ Anuxa was formed, which is definitely a turning point in the career of abeZilla. On 22nd August 2009, DJ Anuxa aired a 12 minute mix on her radio show "The Grind", which went all over the world on the internet.

On 26th October and 2nd November 2010, abeZilla became the second ever act to play twice in 2 weeks at The Sesh, and is due to play again in 2011. 2011 brought many new things for abeZilla, preparing his first commercially available release, doing several remixes for local bands, headlining and closing the Black Prince Stage at the prestigious Cottingham Springboard Festival, radio plays on BBC Humberside and BBC6 Music, and a live session for BBC Humberside. The second half of 2011 is bringing a more refined approach, with abeZilla perfecting his live technique and performing a unique 2-hour live collaboration with AppleMax inside Hull's Holy Trinity Church as part of the Trinity Free Music Festival...
