The Essence of iXia

iXia was the name for Undertone before we realised that the name was in use by a US Heavy Metal band that was far more successful than we were at the time.

Before Undertone was born, theDan joined up with dJP under his then bandname, 'iXia'. These are some of the tracks that we produced in our early days before we left the iXia label behind and got serious about our music.
There are some pretty fun tracks in this list.

This album was never officially released by dJP under the iXia label, but was the basis for dJP and theDan getting together to form undertone. dJP found that this album was too dynamic in nature and represented an uncontrolled evolution in his musical styling.
You can clearly hear that this album was produced in lower quality applications like Scream Tracker and Mad Tracker. When theDan came along and dJP decided to focus his energies and we began working in more professional Sequencing Apps. By comparison the quality shift is noticable.

This was the first iXia release back in 1998. dJP Worked on this for nearly a year during his final year of school. (no wonder those results could have been better!)
