Released in October 2007, “Plastik-Ambash” was a challenging, primitive-yet-complex single-sided 12” that barely hinted at Hall’s creative power. From 2008 through 2010, he issued seven 12” singles on his own Wild Oats and motor city vet Mike Grant's Moods & Grooves, as well as London-based labels Third Ear and Hyperdub. The best among these were “Kaychunk” and “Solar Funk” (the latter technically credited to KMFH) -- unclassifiable tracks that absorbed a multitude of influences while sounding like the work of no one else.

By early 2011, Hall had also remixed tracks by the dubstep-turned-synth pop Darkstar, deep house stalwart Dennis Ferrer, electro-techno producer Space Dimension Controller, and Detroit garage rockers the Dirtbombs.
