Biography

There is more than one band / artist known as Loadstar.

1. Speed metal band from Napoles, Italy, formed in 1985.


2. The group name for producers Xample & Lomax.

At the age Bristol based Gavin Harris (aka Xample) and Nick Hill (aka Lomax) got into music, the scene was already thriving. After growing up to the sound of The Human League, Quincy Jones and Prince, they both followed with passion the rise to fame of The Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers and Daft Punk, yet their sound of choice was , inspired by local hero Roni Size, LTJ Bukem’s atmospheric grooves, Dillinja’s brutal rhythms, Ed Rush And Optical’s and John B’s soundscapes.

Xample’s first ambition was to become a DJ and after relocating in Liverpool he teamed up with local DJs and Producers Sol and Futurebound and made his name DJing in some of the best nights around Liverpool, Leeds and Manchester. When he decided to try his hand at producing, his early tracks managed to get released on Hardleaders, Ray Keith’s Penny Black and L Plates. Back in Bristol, Xample set up a studio and got to work on shaping up his own raw, powerful sound. Soon, Ram Records noticed him and offered him a deal with their Frequency Offshoot for a couple of 12s, before graduating to Ram with the track ‘Heaven and Hell’, included on the Dimensions 3 EP and on Andy C’s Nightlife 3 mix in 2008.
