Dj Styx is 37 year old Transylvania Saxon. He grew up in Sibiu / Transylvania or Hermannstadt / Siebenbuergen as the Saxons and Germans call it. After the Romanian Revolution in 1989 moved like most Saxon Family’s to Germany, in Munich /Bavaria he began to passionately mix music in 1995. He started off by playing break beats and d’n’b on vinyl before getting in to house, progressive techno, trance and even electro. Throughout his development in music styles, distinct trance elements have always been part of his sets.
Around 5 years into mixing, during travels in Australia influenced by his gathered experiences at parties, he started to almost uniquely play psychedelic trance and trippy, funky, groovy, oriental downbeats that make your heart melt – This passion for psychedelic music was the setting stone for his involvement in the German based plasmamusic & Schmox-Family project, the Italian label “Fabula Records” and the founding of his own “Dreamtime Productions” organization in Romania that is also responsible for the creation of the mystical Transylvania Calling – Gathering of the Tribes.
He has continued to explore all faces and tempos of trance and now mostly plays unique dark progressive and forest sets with a funky touch but also into trippy donwbeat. Best sets are from 3 – 12 or more hours. then the magic takes over!
In the last 20 years he has been able to travel, work and play at many festivals and parties in more then 30 country’s all over the world. Some of the most influential amongst them were Universo Paralello /Brazil, Exodus in Australia, Solar Eclipse Festival in Turkey, Elixiria in Finland and the BOOM Festival in Portugal.
Further he organized & supported many different events in Romania where he also resides in summer. He is also the founder and main organizer of the Transylvania-Calling Festival which was held from 2004 in the Romanian region called Transylvania and now is happening every year and 24 – 31 August 2015 it will unite the Tribes of dozens of countries again to celebrate a week in Wonderland.
