Till the CD "Bullet Rosette" FL Studio was used for the entire process but now X5s utilizes both FL Studio and Abelton Live in order to complete each track. X5s has gone through many transformations with musical style; from cheesy happy hardcore to game music and from classical to electronica. At this current time X5s does not belong to any set genre but instead makes music which blurs the lines between multiple genres. Some say our music is a form of trance while others think it rides alongside of video game music or experimental. Years later and an evolutionary curve to prove it X5s has created an interesting blend of electronic music that creates discussion and insomnia.
A blend of awkward sounds with the willingness to create harmony and sense of solitude. Both men whom make up X5s are age twenty-three and have a background in music theory. X5s originally resided in Lake Elsinore, California but currently one member lives in Fullerton, California while the other lives in San Diego, California. X5s's influences are mainly bands from the 80's. Bands from other electronic genres such as: Infected Mushroom, Bloom 06, Eiffel 65, Misted Muppet, MindInABox, Gammer, InEffect, UFO, DNA, Sy, Unknown, Fracus, Resist, Inpact, Hixxy, Scott Brown, CLSM, Cube::Hard, Darwin, S3RL and such from the UK Hardcore genre and Goa/Psytrance genre have all created some type of inspiration or appreciation towards electronic music. X5s has been going for almost 7 years now and we hope that you enjoy our past or current songs.
We see music as an art form and with that we believe that art is an inspirational tool to the masses. We are currently unsigned and self managed, if you would like to contact X5s then please do so through email or via facebook. Read more on Last.fm.
