Prior to making music under the i_o pseudonym, Lockhart also went by Fawks, having featured releases on labels such as Dim Mak Records, Doorn Records and even a remix of Skrillex and The Game’s "El Chapo" on NEST HQ. Spinnin' Records also signed his collaboration with electro house DJ and producer Tommy Trash.
Garrett’s first release under this name got him featured on Mau5trap’s seventh installment of the We Are Friends compilation. He was later featured on the electronic music platform Dancing Astronaut.  In a second feature, i_o released a track called "Not Techno" and broke down the meaning of his work:
"Not Techno” is a mission statement for the kids who love going to underground parties. It’s a return to the sweaty, grimey, dark warehouses that dance music was made for. It is also a tongue-in-cheek response to the techno snobs who love to give me (and generally anyone who uses the word “techno” without their permission) a hard time on the internet. Dance music fans are awesome and get excited about new music, but there are always those few elitists who feel the need to hate on anything and everything, regardless of what it is. Genre is a helpful tool for defining sound but some people turn it into a prison and berate anyone who doesn’t follow some arbitrary guideline. They tend to ruin the fun, not only for themselves, but also for those around them. We’re all guilty of it sometimes, but at the end of the day, it’s dance music. It’s about coming together and sharing a moment. nothing matters, calm down, have fun.Best i_o Songs of All Time
