Since his very first EP, released in 1995 on Ozone records, Olivier Raymond aka Oxia has been at the forefront of the French techno scene. With his friend The Hacker and their label Goodlife, Olivier has helped regenerate the sound of French productions. There where The Hacker is more situated in dark sober sounds and new-wave, Oxia represents the funky side: groovy & funky techno, pure dancefloor, and frequently influenced by electro and melodic sounds. The musical identity that is Oxia today was fully nurtured when finally in contact with American techno (the likes of Jeff Mills, Damon Wild), acid, the Detroit scene but also artists such as Slam, Dave Clarke!
Oxia refined his sound and anchored it in groovy techno tainted by old Skool influences releasing â€˜Etat dâ€™Espritâ€™ EP on Goodlife, gaining credit on the International circuit and getting signed by Carl Cox and DJ C1 onto their label Intec. Worldwide DJ bookings, and releases on labels like; Monoid, Phont, remixes on Missile, Scandium, and Terminal M followed in no time. In 2004, Oxia released his debut solo album â€˜24 HEURESâ€™ on Goodlife. His first full album floats between groovy melodic techno and electro. The album climbed into the 2004 top 5 albums chosen by readers of French leading magazine Trax. UK reviews did not mount less as they also embraced Oxiaâ€™s musical evolution. As known for his mixes of funky techno with an open musical mind, Oxia got more and more into an eclectic trip: Mixing electro-house / electro-techno to groove / deep melodic techno or simply making the finest combination of it all. Taking a glimpse on his production work this evolution is also crystal clear.
Oxia, just like his good friend The Hacker, is an image of the â€˜nouvelle vagueâ€™, The French Electronic Scene.
