Born and raised in Brooklyn, Phoenix Orion first turned heads at local clubs in NYC -- most notably at the legendary Giant Step -- as a guest MC. Eventually, he produced a demo that surfaced on both coasts and led to an underground following thanks to his dark, apocalyptic view of the future and the intergalactic beats that accompanied it. PO's dystopic perspectives were further explored on his 1999 debut full-length Zimulated Experiencez, which included collaborators Hive, Daddy Kev, Hermes, and DJ Rhettmatic (of Beat Junkies fame). He returned in late 2001 with Secret Wars, off the Atomcandy Label. PXO was a featured artist on the 3x Platinum lp for Linkin Park entitled ‘Reanimation”. PXO is also a dancer, choreographer, model, dj and actor he also enjoys being behind the camera. PXO now resides in Las Vegas, Nevada where he can be found DJing at the hottest LV Night Clubs and spinning for Top 40 artist. Such as (Rick Ross, Lloyd Banks, Juelz Santana, BG of Cash Money, Baby Bash, Tech N9ne) and many more..
