Solar Quest was founded when Saunders got interested in acid house in the beginning of the 1990's. In 1993 and 1994 he had as much as nine releases, of which two were full length albums (the other under alias Entropica). The track Acid Air Raid, released in 1993, is one of the classics of acid techno and next year's dreamy Orgship is a significant release in ambient music.
For the annual Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts Solar Quest has often produced a solar energy powered ambient concert tent and a lot of its music has been recorded and mixed in a studio powered by solar energy.
Saunders has had cooperation with e.g. British DJ Choci, under whose record label Choci's Chewns most of Solar Quest's early releases were published. The British singer Kirsty Hawkshaw's vocals can be heard on many of them. A remix collection of Alan Parsons' song Apollo is among the more obscure Solar Quest releases.
