His sound is always straight forward and essential, often using the Roland TB 303 to produce hypnotic ACID odysseys combined with a strong emotional melody part. In the early 90s, the self-taught musician worked for Frank Farian, with whom he learned a lot about mixing and producing. Platinum and Gold records were the result.
Kai Tracid had his national breakthrough in 1997 with his first single Your Own Reality. His international breakthrough came the following year with the release of the song Liquid Skies. Both tracks later appeared on the debut album Skywalker 1999. Songs from Tracid’s second artist album Trance & Acid are still played worldwide by renowned A-list DJ’s, some 18 years after their original release. These include the single Life Is Too Short; his first Top-10 hit in the German Single Charts, Too Many Times and the timeless Trance & Acid.
Armed with a fine ear for both underground and festival Sounds, his DJ skills saw him performing at some of the world’s top-event venues such as Timewarp, Tomorrowland, Parookaville, Creamfields and Dreamstate.
With three artist albums to his name already, keep an eye out for the forthcoming 4th Kai Tracid album!
