Alex Guthmann aka LX-D is a unique psychedelic-trance DJ hailing from Bochum, Germany. LX-D’s sublime signature sound leans on melodies from the far East; which when combined with Oriental tones – transport the listener seamlessly back to the original spiritual home of psy-trance – Goa.
Freedom, equality and love are the core principles behind LX-D’s melodic powerful psy-trance. The merging of souls from a plethora of different cultural and social backgrounds but united in one trance – this is the force that drives LX-D; and this is evident in the different styles that he successfully fuses for the dancefloor; with an impressive ability to read the crowd and then meticulously hand-picking the tracks for his energising and hypnotising sets.
LX-D already has a successfull gig list under his belt, playing all over Europe including Germany, England, Spain, Italy, Hungary, and Holland; at well respected festivals including Antaris, Sonica, Psy-Fi, S.U.N., Wonderland, Samsara, Hai in den Mai, Transylvaliens, Green Vibrations, Zuruck zu den Wurzeln and Bachblyten. Young & filled with enthusiasm and aspirations; LX-D is inspired by artists such as Man With No Name and Etnica, he adores the Goa Trance Classics from the legendary Dragonfly Records, and is influenced heavily by them in his sets which incoporate a lot of the old skool Goa Trance vibe, but in a modern jacket.
For LX-D it wasn’t just the music of the early Goa trance scene that resonated so passionately with him, but also the spirit – the feeling – the purity and raw emotion of this era; and this is paramount in what drives Alex’s creativity. LX-D is making great waves amongst the psy-scene, recently catching the eye of Iono-Music head honcho – Matthias Sperlich; who has commissioned Alex to set up a series of fresh innovative Psychedelic compilations.; with the first in the series titled ‘Digital Sanskrit’; scheduled for release after the Summer.
