Ovnimoon records presents Formula Occurrences a three track single from Yum Kaxx making...
...a new splash onto the world with their heady and fun moody psychedelic progressive flavors. Yum Kaax is Klaus Gervin Nielsen and Jakob Gottlieb Svendsen, Copenhagen, Denmark.
Coming from a background of alternative rock music, they both started attending psychedelic trance parties in about 2003. Full of inspiration from travelling around the world for the festival vibe. Searching for more sun than Denmark can provide, they decided to start experimenting with Psychedelic Trance production.
In 2005, Yum Kaax was formed. The early tracks were progressive psytrance, but they discovered the joy of downbeat psychedelic trance / psy dub and decided to do both! They have created their own downbeat sound combining powerful bass, world instruments and percussion, often inviting friends along with their instruments and their musical talent. Meanwhile they have continued to explore and experiment in the psytrance genre.
In 2009 the first live psytrance set was ready, and since then they have played both in Denmark, Sweden and Germany. Playing around Copenhagen at underground parties, they have become well known in the Copenhagen underground, but they have also been travelling playing at festivals such as Vuuv 2010/2011, Voltron Festival 2012 and Midgard Fest 2013 People like the tight sound, massive bass lines and twisted leads. It seems to be a nice alternative to the 'usual' sound of modern progressive psytrance.
Yum Kaax's psytrance sets is usually in the 137-142 BPM range. Live controllers and synths is often part of the experience, twisting the sound or adding live synth and melodies. Yum Kaax is always looking forward to the next adventure, enjoying the vibe and sharing the happy times, around the world.
