XentriX is a twenty seven year old self taught Drum and Bass producer from Lampeter in West Wales. After DJing at events from 2001 onwards, it was April 2008 he decided to turn his hand to producing. Having never used any form of music production equipment before he spent the first year learning and experimenting, then creating a constant stream of material month after month.
He was first introduced to Drum and Bass at the age of 13 with Goldie « Timeless », and then 2 years later with Roni Size album « New Forms ». Having elements of his tracks compared to ‘New Forms’, he feels this is high praise for this stage in his career.
Enjoying the organic sound of real instruments, XentriX takes influence from every genre and era of music.Listening to a wide variety from thrash metal to jazz, he feels with some of his tracks he is “Working one genre inside another”.
In mid 2009 he started to have airplay on internet radio shows, originating in the UK, Portugal and the US. Quickly building a growing fan base, and being supported by, DJ Roostah, DJ RamJack, Pedro Cruz, Jay Dubz, DJ TDB, DJ Slime, Sparc, Optimystic, DJ Bomber to name a few.
In October 2009, he signed a 2 year contract with Point Audio. Releasing Condor, Memories, Summer Breeze and the much loved Star Light Rhodes.
Fast forward to April 2010 and XentriX has signed another 3 tracks to 96kHz productions, Saigon Nightmares, Music Keeps Me Dancing and Steal Your Face. All coming on his Toxic Loud EP entitled X’es.
The rest of 2010 looks set to be a massive year for the rookie Welsh producer, with many more releases to come through Point Audio and 96kHz. Currently working in collaboration with new video production company retronicavideo.com on music videos, conceptual art and installations.
