Well they've been around for years, their early stuff was kickin'( got a good old track called"Imagine if the whole world was on Trip"), but the last 12" I heard wasn't my cuppa at all. Best check out some samples on http://www.psyshop.com or http://www.chaosunlimited.co.uk or http://www.saikosounds.com or someone. Or search for their website, 'cos I haven't heard much of their recent stuff. :unsure:
I've heard that their set at Samothraki was very industrial, clangy type noises.
But as Fil says they have made some corking tunes in the past, all quite minimal and not very melodic but massive basslines. 'We create our own happiness' and 'The Frog' are 2 of my faves but the best ever (IMO) is Panic in Paradise off the 'Phosphorescent' album on TIP.
Worth also checking out their alter ego Delta especially 'Stranded' Johann remix (You must have heard that one) and 'Travelling at the speed of thought'
Radio album is the last X Dream I bought (also recommended)
saw them at the rex with cosmosis and bamboo forest and they were really good. mind you they did play all the older classic x-dream choons if i remember rightly.......dunno guess it depends which type of set they play

Oh sh*t... :lol1:
Right, I'm off to get me zimmer frame, and bus pass, and long handled thingie for putting on shoes with.... :P
Hi i saw x dream at samothraki and they were really naff... the tunes were not to bad sort of but they had some lady dressed in bondage gear type thingy skreaching evil noise over the tunes... not good.. Havnt heard other stuff of theres tho so may be wrong...
X-Dream didnt play at Samothraki, Midi Miliz were meant to play X-dreams stuff but played their own apparently...i wasnt there so i'm not 100% sure but anyways...X-Dream are one of the best producers in my opinion, their early stuff is nice an melodic an gets gradually more minimal. "Radio" i think was pretty much the mother of minimal trance :punk: anyways, whether their stuff is yuor cup of chai or not it is amazingly produced an the live act is worth it just to see 2 'technicians' at work behind a mountain of equipment. as u can see, i'm a fan.
