Dax grew up listening to the UK sounds of Jungle, Drum n Bass and Garage. Being heavily
influenced by Drum n Bass heroes like Goldie and Bad Company, his love for the underground
meant he soon started to DJ on pirate radios at an early age of 15 whilst he was still at school. He
became an avid vinyl collector buying from his local record store “Black Market” on a weekly
basis, whilst at the same time producing and crafting his sound. His first vinyl releases would
come in 2005 on old Jungle labels like Mickey Finn’s “Urban Takeover” under alias “Dangerous”
and his own imprint back then “Xplicit Sound.” Following on from this Dax went on to discover the
sounds of Techno during one summer spent in Ibiza. From this point on his passion for cutting
edge 4 by 4 beats took over but the old Jungle influences are still heard today in his DJ sets and
Degree educated in Music Technology, Dax runs his own studio in Berlin where he also works as
a Sound and Mastering Engineer. With a constant supply of music set to be released and a
packed tour schedule around the globe, the UK artist is firmly set for another successful year.
