When his tracks created a buzz on www.MP3.com, Zon received offers from two of electro-industrial biggest labels, Germany's Dependent and America's Metropolis. Dismantled tracks were featured on compilations like Dependent's Septic, Vol. 2 and Dystopian's Resist the Command, Vol. 2, while a competition-winning remix of :wumpscut:'s "Wreath of Barbs" appeared on a single. Dismantled's self-titled full-length debut appeared in 2002, followed by a tour in 2003. Zon later released his bootleg mixes of Madonna and Nine Inch Nails through his website and Dismantled's sophomore effort, Post Nuclear, arrived in early 2004.
