Biography

from djtrax.org

DJ Trax was an early starter when he first started drumming at the age of seven. By eleven he was breakdancing and he began scratch DJ`ing at the age of thirteen. He formed a hip hop group with two MCs at the age of fifteen called Mixrace.

When he was sixteen he recorded his first Two tracks in a professional studio and then to an up and coming record company called Brain Records.

The two tracks were snapped up and released in 1989 under the group name Rawtrax.

At around the same time Trax mailed out his first mixrace tracks to a newly formed but very credible label Moving Shadow, who immediately requested a meeting. A week later he signed his second recording contract and went on to release the classic `Two Bad For Ya` and `The Future Is Before Your Eyes` E.P. Both tracks were a lot faster than any other tracks released up to that point and for many years after, at 180bpm the tracks were clearly landmarks.

Trax stayed with the quickly developing Moving Shadow for the next three years and as well as releasing a follow up Mixrace E.P he released his first solo E.P `One Man One DJ` and also the solo follow up smash `Hightime.`

Despite the success of the past four years Trax craved for more and formed his own labels with Mixrace partner Brown in order to have more control on the releases and promotion side.
