Artist Profile Bio:
"painters paint their pictures on canvas, musicians paint their pictures on silence."
A musician like no other.
Not content to be labeled as merely a DJ, a producer, or even a DJ/Producer, Melvin Oliphant III aka 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.
As a self-described "artist of sound," Traxx morphs musical compositions into distinctive, highly emotional interpretations — he is, indeed, an innovator, and one who reshapes music into a progressive,forward-thinking document which defies classification and invites analysis and discussion. From eclectic and avant-garde tunes to old school jack tracks and lounge grooves, he hears it all without discrimination, pretension or elitism.
Traxx released on numerous labels such as Relief, M/O/S, Gigolo, Muzique, Crème Organization, Antenna and Crème-Jak under different monikers such as XXart, Saturn V, X2, The Green Goblin and Dirty Criminals. He collaborated with James T. Cotton, DJ Hell, Green Velvet, Hieroglyphic Being, DeeCoy and Legowelt to shape his unique definition of Jakbeat.
In 2007 Traxx founded Nation as a platform for the Jakbeat sound for artists like JTC, D’Marc Cantu, Saturn V, 2AMFM, X2, Naughty Wood, Lost Frequencies, Beau Wanzer and many more tocreate a new era from the backgrounds of dance culture of rhythm tracks, House Grooves,Synth, and Darker Wave to create a new era of sound influenced from our forefathers of the music scene in the early years of the 80's to the early 90's.
