Since 1995 Kai Tracid is an active part of the electronic music scene. In the past the musical autodidact and electronic student, spend hours in front his computer playing with sounds. By doing that, he discovered his own formula which made him to the high demanded producer and DJ he is now: Trace + Acid = Tracid. “This is my very own Tracid Traxxx sound, trance music with high party energy” Kai explains. “Until today I can’t sing properly, but I have a strong feeling for the emotionality of music”. And there is another point that distinguishes Kai from others in the scene: “I set high value on ambitious lyrics”. An uncommon statement, especially in the club scene.
Since 1997 Kai Tracid appears constantly in the German dance charts, which he hit with several number ones. People like Frank Farian build on Kai´s talent in 1995. Platinum- and gold records were the result. Other acknowledgements like the nomination for the VIVA-Comet (1998) and the Eins live Krone (2003) followed. What had started out with cheap home equipment now turned into a high tech audio laboratory.
His own way, that’s important to him. Kai Tracid has his own point of view; not accepting people patronising him. Right now he’s getting new energy through yoga. “It’s important to take time for yourself, to find your own way and be self-aware”.
Due to his success, he seems to be right: More than 50 releases of his Tracid Traxxx Label had been (or still are) in the dance charts. More than 100 productions were released by Kai Tracid under his name and pseudonyms. As a DJ he is world wide recommended – more than ever. On top come all the guest performances and interviews at several radio stations and his appearance in the Hollywood-movie “Hey DJ!”.
He can watch back on a long career with gigs around the globe. Now he’s back on track and still rocking the revivals and classic party with his unique Trance and Acid sound.
