Hixxy is from Portsmouth, UK and his
DJ roots can be found with an obsession for US Hip Hop and
Rap and watching DMX Championship Videos. In the early 90s
when Rave culture was sweeping the UK, Hixxy got caught up
in the tide. He met up with Ramos, Supreme and Sunset Regime
and started playing out across the south coast of the UK.
In 1992 he met DJ Dougal at Dreamscape and a legendry partnership
was born, soon they created their own label... Essential Platinum.
Hixxys big production break came in 1995 when he released,
with the then MC Sharkey... Toytown, a massive hit that can
still be heard being played at Raves even today. The tune
was released by React Records and Hixxy had made a name for
himself. In 1996 Hixxy released his first Album.. the Massive
Bonkers series was born, the third instalment went silver
and is the biggest selling Hardcore series ever.
By 1999 the Hardcore scene was dying and Hixxy was becoming
disillusioned with the tracks being released and felt the
scene had had it. After a lot of soul searching Hixxy felt
he couldn't abandon a scene he had put so much energy, time
and money into. A decision he is now glad he made, as by 2001
Hardcore was going from strength to strength, with lots of
new Raves, tunes and labels being born including his new label
Raver Baby. Hixxy has also worked under the monikers OMG and,
with Sunset Regime, released many tracks under "Antisocial".
