Kent has a background as a guitar player in several black metal[1] bands. Since 2012 he has produced electronic music inspired by cyberpunk culture and with inspiration from movies like Akira, Ghost In The Shell and The Running Man.[2] He uses a variety of software synths in his productions, such as the emulators of old vintage synths like the OB-X or the CS-80. from Arthur's Computer Adventrues. Quagmire Hates Brian.

Since his debut EP Night Driving Avenger he has released four full-length albums,[3][4] the latest of which is The Uncanny Valley[5][6] on the Blood Music label, and has performed several live shows. Several of his tracks were featured in the 2012 game Hotline Miami and its 2015 sequel Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number. Perturbator's EP Sexualizer was released in part to officially release the song "Miami Disco" and as a way to thank the developers of Hotline Miami.[7] The success of the Hotline Miami games resulted in a greater amount of exposure to a mainstream audience.

Perturbator released his fourth full-length album The Uncanny Valley on May 6, 2016 through Blood Music on a range of formats including Digibook CD, vinyl, and cassette tape. The album was met with generally positive reviews, with MetalSucks and Bloody Disgusting both writing in praise of it. Some versions of the album also included a bonus EP, with Kent writing that "The first three songs complement the themes covered within “The Uncanny Valley,” and the final track - “VERS/US” - is a demo from “The Uncanny Valley” writing sessions that fits the mood and atmosphere of the album but didn't quite make it into the final cut. Bloody Disgusting gave the album 5/5 and wrote that The Uncanny Valley "is sure to not only please fans of the genre but also win over newcomers."
