He formed a band playing at a pub at night with his friends since he was a student, later he joined the RS Promotion, and released his first studio album in 1990, but not very successful.

He succeeded in 1991 when he released his second studio album Touch Thunder and changed the genre to pop dance, including breakdance on his own. During this time, he was famous and popular (has brought him to compare with Grammy Entertainment's Jetrin Wattanasin[1]). He released two more studio albums in 1993 and 1995, as well as several special albums, and also starred in many films and TV series.

In 1997, he was arrested in a drug case in a condominium near Tha Phra Intersection. The fifth studio album Touch Cyclone, released in 1998, was banned from opening the song. After this, Tat continued to release four more studio albums before turning to singing Luk Thung (Thai country song).
