The roots of dance music in Toronto were built around the success of the Surf Club and Cassanovas. In 1986 Peter & Tyrone were already playing these clubs, and it is from here that their brand of underground dance music led them to start playing all-night warehouse parties. Warehouse parties were the only outlet to hear house music. Hundreds of people flocked to illegal venues to hear the likes of Frankie Knuckles, Tony Humphries, Robert Owens, Ten City, and of course the hosts who made it happen; Peter and Tyrone. By this point they had played with the best and were now being recognized as innovators in the Toronto house scene.

By 1991, Peter & Tyrone began a residency at the Oz called 'Thundergroove Sundays'. The two juggled a busy schedule between the weekly night, their production as the 'Klubb Kidz', and the booking of DJ's and live acts for the thriving warehouse scene; Little Louie Vega, Barbara Tucker, DJ Dove, Erick Morillo, Spencer Kinsey, DJ Disciple, Roger Sanchez, Liberty City, David Morales, Cajmere, Murk, and Todd Terry were amongst the talent. The residency at the Oz continued until the club shut their doors in 1996. By this time Peter & Tyrone's sound had matured somewhat, and their new, harder tech-house sound had led them to start playing large raves. Dose productions was quick to pick them up as residents for the North America wide company. Apart from thriving as DJs , they now had their own record label '83 West' and had produced successful records for Power Music, New York. With the record label's success came the obligatory trip across the Atlantic. The UK welcomed Peter & Tyrone with open arms, where their sound was heard at The Hub, Satellite, Bar Rhumba, Deluxe (Nottingham), Hard Times, and of course, Ministry of Sound. Guest spots on Kiss FM and Galaxy 101 gave the UK radio audience their taste of P & T.
