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.

In September, Frank Nitty and DJ Ghost played at "Megga Buzz" on four-turntables at the infamous rave warehouse, "HomeBase" in Oakland, California.
