It was in the year 1997 that a
young, up-and-coming producer in Frankfurt developed
a new formula for successful dance productions: Acid
as an underground element mixed with Trance as the
popular element resulted in a new blend as the basis
for successful future dance productions. Kai TRACID
Since 1997 a number of top placings in the German
Dance Charts (DDC) have made Kai Tracid familiar to
an audience that includes more than just observers
of the scene. With "Life Is Too Short" he
even managed to break into the TOP 10 of the German
media control single charts in November 2001. His
second studio album "TRANCE & ACID"
is now due for release. In addition to the recent
hits "Life Is Too Short" and "Too Many
Times", Kai Tracid also presents a number of
Kai Tracid is a producer who attaches a lot of significance
to the content of his work and its message. This is
a somewhat more unusual approach in the techno scene.
Thanks to his consistent recipe for success
"challenging texts coupled with high-quality
studio productions" he soon won the respect
of many in the music industry. Thus, Frank Farian,
for instance, has also made use of the talents of
Kai Tracid, and VIVA nominated him for the VIVA-Comet
He started in a small way with second-hand "home
equipment" and had to fight hard to assert himself
against the more complex technology of his "established
rivals" in the industry. Successfully! In his
Eternia studio he too now has complex, state-of-the-art
technology, alongside a few old analogue synthesisers
however. But what really counts, says Kai, is "a
love of music, a feeling for new musical trends and,
above all, remaining true to oneself."
Three years ago he also founded his own label "Tracid
Traxxx", which without having to exaggerate
is now one of the top vinyl labels in Germany.
Despite the vast amount of time spent in the studio
on productions, Kai Tracid has never lost touch with
his ever-growing fan community. And that's why he
never misses the opportunity to get the crowds going
virtually every weekend in some of the hottest
and coolest clubs worldwide.
In Kai Tracid Germany has a further protagonist of
electronic music with the desire, talent and charisma
to charm an audience of millions that goes far beyond
the borders of Germany.
