Juno Reactor was formed as an art project in 1990. Watkins wanted to collaborate with other artists, producing exciting projects that were not commercially driven. He wanted to create experimental music and non-musical soundtracks that would work with installations, art pieces, and film projects.

Juno Reactor produced and wrote Traci Lords's American hit "Control". As an instrumental it was featured on the soundtrack to the movie Mortal Kombat. It was used in the fight between Liu Kang and Reptile. The group also appeared on the soundtrack to the sequel, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, with the track "Conga Fury".

Later, Ben Watkins in collaboration with Don Davis, spent 6 months in LA working with Davis and the Wachowski Brothers for the Matrix series of films and video games. Ben Watkins scored over an hour of music, finalizing in the colossus of "Navras" a masterpiece of electronic - world music and full orchestra. Animatrix also featured pre-existing tracks "Masters Of The Universe" (in Kid's Story) and "Conga Fury (Animatrix Edit)" (in Final Flight of the Osiris).

Their single "Guardian Angel" was featured as the opening theme of the anime series Texhnolyze. "Guardian Angel" was also featured in the movie Drive. Other Juno Reactor tracks appear on movies such as Eraser, Virtuosity, Lost In Space, the 1999 film Beowulf, and Once Upon a Time in Mexico. Juno Reactor soundtracks have also been played during baseball, basketball, and gridiron football games, and the Japanese Grand Prix.

Their work appears in the PlayStation game Jet Moto 3, PlayStation 2's Frequency, and the Xbox game Mad Dash Racing. Juno Reactor also scored the PlayStation 2 game The Mark of Kri.

Juno Reactor also has a song in the game Dance Dance Revolution Ultramix 4. "Masters of the Universe", from the album Shango, was briefly heard during the Lara Croft: Tomb Raider movie trailer. The trailer for Secuestro Express includes an excerpt from the song "War Dogs" off of the Labyrinth album. Also from Labyrinth, the song "Mutant Message" is featured in the Legion trailer.
