"Paradox is veteran International music producer Dev Paradox. His career started back in 1988 when 'Mixrace' was formed with partner DJ Trax. The first professional recording by Mixrace was in 1990 and was produced by the Plastic Jam (of Labello Blanco recordings).
After brief relations with Surburban Base and Strictly Underground Records the first Mixrace 12" surfaced in 1991 on the early Moving Shadow Records Label. Both producers only 17 at the time released the early Mixrace Hardcore classic 'Too Bad for Ya/The Future is Before Your Eyes' (SHADOW 018).
Four more releases followed on the Moving Shadow label and in 1995 Dev and Trax set up their own Stronghold, Mobhanded and Offset Recordings labels.
New artist guises surfaced in 1996 in the forms of 'Alaska' and 'Paradox'. Dev wanted to show his diversity by creating two different genre's of drumfunk with Alaska being the ambient monkier of the two, and Paradox exploring the drum patterns of 1970's funk.
As Trax started to program breakbeat at different tempo's, Paradox's sound took off in another direction with a string of releases on Renegade Hardware, Certificate 18 and Reinforced Records.
Eight years on and we're rapidly approaching 2004. Dev has now recorded for over an amazing 23 record labels including 4-Hero's legendary Reinforced Records, LTJ Bukem's Good Looking, Certificate 18, Partisan, Renegade Hardware, Timeless, Total Science's CIA, Blame's 720 Degrees, Nexus, Danny Break's Droppin Science, Subject 13's Vibez Recordings, Twisted Funk, Toshiba-EMI, Ninebar, Sonica, 2000 Black, Sheebeen, Form-3, Holland's Rush Hour Records, New York's Offshore Recordings, and Italy's Archive Records.
In the studio music collaborations have included artists such as Sweden's prolific Seba, DJ Nucleus, EZ Rollers, Flytronix, Subject 13 and Volcov.
Paradox remixing duties include 4-Hero for Talkin Loud/Mercury, Yasushi Ide for Warner Brothers, Boom Boom Satelites for Sony/Epic, LTJ Bukem for Good Looking, Justice, James Hardway, NXS, Blue, Trax for Lacerba, Konami Arcades, Sony Playstation and Japanese Manga Cartoon Company Marine Entertainment/Avex inc.
Paradox is sponsored by Firetrap, Acupuncture footwear, Bloc Eyewear, and Aerosoul clothing.
Dev Paradox is also without doubt a live touring machine outside the studio. Every month of the year you can catch Paradox's live show truly worldwide. Dev has visited all corners of the globe and has headlined live shows in East and West Coast America, Asia and all over Europe from Iceland to Latvia.
Paradox has continued to work with fellow producer Nucleus on countless projects and 2004 see's their new LP surfacing on Reinforced Records.
Drumfunk will take control....... "
