Magnetrixx is Stefan Lewin from Cologne, Germany.The musical development of Stefan Lewin extends over more than 10 years now. He started to play piano for a year when he was nine years old ,after that he already started to explore the more electronical ways of music. Since 1995 the project magnetrixx exists and is continously progressing. After several single-releases on Labels such as Tatsu, Midijum or Leviathan, the bigger success came with the realese of their extraordinary debut album Trittschall in 2001 on Tatsu-Records. At this point Magnetrixx proved without a doubt that it is still possible to produce a new sound! The album featured a very unique style, warm and groovy basslines combined with weird totally kneaded sounds, which are mostly created by stefan himself, found a lot of friends all over the place very quickly.If you try to find words for the Magnetrixx sound, it´s best described as a balance between seemingly opposite influences: it has the minimalistic driving grooves of techno, and it remains true to the building structures of trance. It’s futuristic tribal and somewhat mysterious. But above all, it’s deeply hypnotic! The secret of Magnetrixx is how they use the tension of opposing elements to theiradvantage, and the end result is always the same: dance-floor inspiration, as listeners are converted into dancers! On their latest album Phase-shift, Magnetrixx kept their deeply hypnotic soundand balanced it with the warmth of the UK progressive approach. In 2005, Wired was released, the last album so far, different influences were leading to very nice psychedelic tracks, with jazz and classical influences.
