TalixZen is insane, I swear. Dudes got no attention span whatsoever. Writes a song in half an hour and will call it done. No 2 songs sound the same and almost none of them can ever be fitted into any existing genre name. Everything is different in some way. Everything is an experiment.
TalixZen grew up listening to records that popped and crackled, tapes that dragged, and cd's that skipped. Now he tries to imitate those sounds "ON PURPOSE"!!!! Weirdo.
Grew up in Nova Scotia. Learned how to DJ in Halifax. Started writing tracks around the same time. Moved to Toronto and haven't looked back.
I DJ. I play on my laptop. I sometimes use guitar pedals and stuff to make it more interesting. I guess you'd call it playing live.
