In 2005 he visited Jeff Mills at Haarlem and Surgeles gave him a demo, the day after Surgeles got an mail from the one and only mister Jeff Mills. 
Jeff mills said that my music sounds great and that inspired Jeff to let Surgeles make a mix for his Purpose Maker Label. 
Two weeks later, Surgeles mix was on Jeffs Axis site for the 10th birthday of the famous record "the Bells".
