New Moby Dub Mix by OXIA – Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad
Olivier Raymond AKA Oxia was born in 1971 in Grenoble, France. He got into music such as disco & funk in his early teens. While in college, his friendship with Stephane Deschezeaux kick-started a musical journey, with a debut on a local Funk radio show. At 15 years of age, Olivier already had started mixing; his mixes were influenced by a large spectrum of music styles: Funk, Italo-disco, New Wave and the early Chicago and New-York House scene.
By 1991, Stephane and Olivier bought their first bits of equipment and started to compose music. Not too long after that, Olivier became a resident DJ at a club in Grenoble, jumpstarting a career in electronic music. By 1994, Stephane and Olivier’s live act ‘Oxia’ was born. In 1995, they met The Hacker, Alex Reynaud and Kiko in Grenoble. That same year Olivier created Ozone records together with Kiko, where Oxia released their first EP.
In 1998, Olivier went on to create a new label with The Hacker and Alexandre Reynaud, christened ‘Goodlife’ in homage to the mythical Inner City track.
Olivier and Stéphane still produced several EPs together but by 2000 they decided to part ways; Olivier continued with the Oxia moniker as a solo DJ act.
Oxia’s continued sound evolution, by now heavily focusing on groovy techno, gave birth to a series of EPs & remixes on Goodlife but also on labels such as Intec, Terminal M, and many others. His outstanding DJ qualities were captured on several mix CDs, and an intensive touring schedule worldwide followed. source : OXIA
“Coyu’s remix for ‘Natural Blues‘ was just the prelude for our big homage to one of the biggest pop and electronic music artists of the 90’s, Moby. We are proud to have this great bunch of remixes of some of the classic Moby’s anthems, with different options from Deephouse to Techno, for a wide range of DJs and music lovers.” – OXIA
