Although he started his career spinning progressive house and speed garage in the mid-90’s, xb’s focus on trance was fairly solid even before he came across Man With No Name and his Perfecto Fluro remixes of epic trance anthems. Back then people called the stuff Goa trance, and it had its own community separate from the more mainstream mega-rave culture of Paul Oakenfold, Paul Van Dyk, and Tiesto in the US. For those who know him, it makes perfect sense why xb would be drawn to such a community, but in reality the music just fit. Hard, fast, loud, dirty and beautiful; exactly that for which he had been searching in music. So he jumped in with both feet.
During the last few years of the 90’s and the beginning of the 00’s, xb performed at psytrance parties whenever he could, but had to make a hard choice between finishing school or taking his DJing career to the next level. And so he packed his tables and vinyl away, seemingly for good in late 2001, with a few truly random exceptions.
But that was then, and this is now.
Thanks to the support from his friends and family, and surprise cosmic convergence, xb is back. You’ve been warned.
