The Trixx is young Croatian DJ and producer. He´s into music since age of 13, listening to radio shows and visiting various parties to learn about DJ-ing from older and experienced DJs. First chance he got was in year 2004 when he was 18 years old, he was mixing in the one of the prime times on Croatian Radio DJ, friday night from midnight to 6 a.m.
Very good feedbacks at the time brought him his first real club gig in 2006, and after this one gig he instantly became resident of Buddha Bar in Karlovac. Till today he played in around 40 Croatian clubs. Just to mention the few, “Veneranda” on Hvar island, “Exit” and “Paladium” in Nova Gradiška, “Aquarius”, “Mansion” and “Crazy Horse” in Zagreb, etc. In 2007 he was resident at “Crazy Horse” club, and he also became offical VW DJ playing twice a year on their parties.
End of 2007 he started some serious production, first with some bootlegs which had great feedbacks, and one of them even playlisted on DJ Spy Year Chart on Radio 1, and then following some tracks and remixes with his friend Jake under the name The Trixx. Their first remix was made for Croatian DJ Superstar Fresh Jay´s Remix Competition, and it won second place. The track is called “Do You Want Me”. Second remix they made was a beginning of great cooperation with famous vocalist Inusa Dawuda. The remix for “High Spirit” was their first officialy released remix (2008). After that, guys made few great bootlegs, including a big Kriss Kross 1992 hip hop classic “Jump”. This one gets great support all over, and altough it was supposed to be released including Hot Jay vs Cash remix, it remains unreleased because of the copyright issue.
New year started great for The Trixx project. They signed another collaboration with Inusa Dawuda on the track called “My life is a party”, which was The Trixx first track ever released. At the same time, their remix for Hot Jay vs Cash track “Only Love” was supported by some of the hottest names from the club scene, such as Jerry Ropero, Michi Lange, Syke´n´Sugarstarr and Tristan Garner, and it was played on world famous DJ Radio – FG DJ Radio in Paris. Interesting fact is that it was the first track made by Croatian DJs played on FG DJ Radio. Very hot track and very huge support just confirmed high quality production and hard work. The track also found its place on the hottest Croatian club compilation – Papaya Day & Night 2009.
Summer 2009 delivered another classic bootleg, this time guys decided to get their hands over
Planet Funk´s track “Chase the sun”. They were also offered to remix two legendary names – Jerry Ropero for his track “The Real Thing” and D.O.N.S. for his track “Somebody Elses Guy”, which they did, but both tracks remains unreleased at the end. End of the year bring their last remix competition work, it was for Funkermans track “Automatic”, after which guys decided to reconstruct their studio and focus on their own tracks instead of remixing. They also worked on a remix for Freemasons track Believer, which was refused as “too electro for the time”.
Following years were a bit quiet, with only one remix and two tracks signed. It was a remix for Mark Trophy and Sonny Wharton – “Discotech”, released on Blacksoul Music label, and singles “Tribe” (on BSMB Miami Sampler) and “Meta” (Housearth Records). Altough there wasn’t much of their production released in the past few years, guys were locked up in the studio and currently have a lot of surprises for the following months. Their quality production gets noticed by Laidback Luke, who is now their mentor. Their mashup “Wild Watrefall” is their latest track that is supported by legendary Laidback Luke, but there are few more weapons ready for this year. To reveal just the few projects coming up, lets say that one of the new tracks will be “Electrified” with the great vocals from Fabal, who seng house classic track “Sombrita” by Wawa in 2007. The track will contain remixes by Mata (Mixmash), Kama Qu (Spinnin), and 2Symmetry, great Croatian DJ and producer duo who got huge support from Fatboy Slim at last years Ultra festival. Another Trixx track coming up soon is “Cosmos”, exciting funky track including the remix from 2Symmetry. To round up this great collab, there is also a track with 2Symmetry called “Yeah Yeah”. The Trixx are also working on several other projects, which we cannot reveal at the moment, but make sure to check this web site for further updates J
