In 1993, Frank Nitty began his career in the SF Rave Scene at a party called "Elmo". It was at this party, he would meet up with his future partner in crime, "DJ Ghost" along with his future production company. In 94', Frank Nitty and two promoters from "Elmo" started up a production company called "Small World Productions". Together they threw numerous parties at the infamous warehouse located at 16th and Harrison or also known as the "Hayes Theater". Among these parties were "It's a small world", and "Indonesia". The line-ups for these parties consisted of "DJ Dan", "Donald Glaude", "Simon", "Jeno", "Frank Nitty" and "DJ Ghost". "Indonesia" was such a success, that it became a weekly Wednesday nightclub and was moved to club "DV8". Frank Nitty and Small World Productions had split up and gone there separate ways in 1995. Frank Nitty went on continuing to spin at numerous parties. In October of 95', Frank Nitty threw a party on his own called "Planet E" which was his most successful solo adventure. It was in May of 96' that Frank Nitty and DJ Ghost were billed as a four-turntable act at a party called "Enchantment". This act had later gotten them booked for a party called "Megga Buzz".

The line up consisted of the regulars at the weekly Wednesday Indonesia in 94', such as "Jeno", "Frank Nitty", "DJ Ghost" and "Kwashi". In September, Frank Nitty and DJ Ghost played at "Megga Buzz" on four-turntables at the infamous rave warehouse, "HomeBase" in Oakland, California. Their performance together was instant chemistry that it astonished the crowd in overwhelming excitement. Soon afterwards, Frank Nitty joined Ghostribe and stopped promoting parties. From 1997 to 1999, Frank Nitty and DJ Ghost playing their now famous 4 turntable act rocked countless massives at the HomeBase warehouse.
