Traxx Playing LIVE**(special engagement)** and wax

“Painters paint their pictures on canvas, musicians paint their pictures on silence.” Melvin Oliphant III aka Traxx

Traxx is a lover of music — one with a passion so intense that it overcomes genre divides to weave an altogether original, exciting, and multi-textured musical fabric which envelops both the avid clubber and the home listener, as well as everyone in between. Not content to be labeled as merely a DJ, a producer, or even a DJ/Producer, Traxx is a self-described “artist of sound.” A sound that is distinctive and highly emotional which defies classification and invites analysis and discussion. From eclectic and avant-garde tunes to old school jack tracks and far beyond, Traxx hears and makes it all without discrimination, pretension or elitism.

Traxxʼs earliest musical memory is his being a young boy spinning 45 records on his toes. His mother has the picture proof. His first instrument was a handmade flute in elementary school, music it seems was just always going to be on the books for Traxx. Like many in Chicago, Traxx was drawn into house music through the legendary WBMX radio shows and two trips to see Ron Hardy at the legendary Music Box. Describing his first experience with house, Traxx recalls “nothing could compare, things were being discovered..this period stays with me because of the intense energy that was applied – itʼs a feeling, an emotion, a mental state of transcendental connection -a spiritual force with the higher being through the physical vessel of the body.”

»We never needed more ʻFaithʼ than we do now. Come together.«
