X mix

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

X-Mix is a ten-part compilation series published between 1993 and 1998 by the Berlin label Studio K7 . It represented the successor series of the three-part 3Lux publications, which were dedicated to the visualization of electronic music for the first time .

The concept was to visually represent electronic music using computer animation.

While the focus of the 3Lux series was still on the visuals, X-Mix releases concentrated primarily on the music mixes that were performed by well-known DJs such as Laurent Garnier , John Acquaviva , Ken Ishii or Dave Clarke in the areas of acid , Techno , Trance and Electro were produced. Thus, in addition to VHS, the series was also released on CD and vinyl and later also on DVD.
