Traxx first Cleveland appearance in 12 years! Excited to have him play here again! Check out two of his more recent sets one from Delsin radio show Red Light Radio and the second from a closing gig at Output. The links are post in the comments section below! Really hyped for him to play here!
Cory Newbould opens the night.
TRAXX morphs musical compositions into distinctive, highly emotional interpretations — he is, indeed, an innovator, one who reshapes music into a progressive,
forward-thinking document which defies classification and invites analysis and discussion.
From eclectic and avant-garde tunes to old school jack tracks and
lounge grooves, he hears it all without discrimination, pretension or elitism.
he's released music on numerous underground labels in the US
and Europe including Gigolo, Relief, Muzique, M/O/S,LIES and Crème.
His music has come to the world under a bucket load of alias'
including Dirty Criminals, XX Art, Mysterio, ViLLan X,
Saturn V (with Tadd Mullinix), X2(with mullinix & cantu)
Mutant Beat Dance and more.
Like many in Chicago, he was drawn into house music through the legendary
WBMX radio shows and two trips to see Ron Hardy at the legendary Music Box.
Describing his first experience with house,
Traxx recalls "nothing could compare, things were being discovered..
this period stays with me because
of the intense energy that was applied - it's a feeling, an emotion,
a mental state of transcendental connection -a spiritual force with
the higher being through the physical vessel of the body."
In an age of digital perfection Traxx is analog, when he DJs he plays vinyl and when he's in the studio he uses hardware. His sound recalls the past but pushes for the future with an overtly emotional and experimental approach. In addition to releasing music for other imprints Traxx also started his own label Nation in April of 2007 which has allowed him to develop and recontextualize the various aspects of his sound.
