As a hyperdimensionalsuperwanderer, XZENTRADI has had a love for music since a very young age. In 1998 in collaboration with his brother Raphael AKA RA they formed a project called soundcloud.com/ouroboros-111. Three main albums were produced along with a variety of remixes and B-sides with genres such as New Age, Breakbeats, Industrial and Trance. Tim and Raphael also produced Hip Hop beats for local projects EMD and KB Mob. EMD now known as local Hip Hop artist George Life. In 2000 Tim started recording DJs at local events and has recorded over 250 DJ sets from local and out of state DJs. In 2001 after much time of watching and studying DJs he decided to start DJing. The name XZENTRADI was born as he first started playing NRG/UK Hardhouse at local underground events. He later moved into genres such as House, Breakbeats, Drum & Bass, and Jungle. In 2006 he started playing Dubstep and started taking more of a philosophical, consciousness based and themed approach to his DJ mixes. The name XZENTRADI was split into alter egos XZENmAsTA and TRADI as the higher self battled the shadow self as portrayed in the double disc DJ mixes entitled sh1fT hAppEnXZ and 111um1TRAD1. He currently plays Dubstep, Midtempo and Drumstep. One of the first to spin records with fire turntables AKA turntable torches, he has spun fire turntables with numerous fire performers at events such as the Evolution Festival, United Festival, Freedom Fest and the Utah regional Burn AKA Element 11. He has shared the stage with DJs and producers such as Shamanic Technology, Knowa Knowone, Govinda, Nico Luminous, SaQi, Roommate, Joe Nice, Noah D, DJG, 6Blocc, APX-1, Ishe, HavocNdeed, No Thing, TZR, Kaminanda, Chris B and Dj'd with performance groups Cirkus Pandemonium, Vaudeville Avant Garde, and Hula Hoopology. .
