UX has been formed in 1996 by pioneers Kris Kylven (The Faithealers, Juno Reactor, Syb-Sonic) and Pete Martin alongside with live co-woker RX Heaven (on midi guitar). With their first album Ultimate Experience, they covered pretty much whole spectrum of psychedelic trance music with great success, appearing on over 30 different compilations and on formerly Youth’s (Killing Joke) label – Dragonfly Records for who they also made a Killing Joke remix. Following their big succesess, they also toured around the globe playing their material.
UX has been known as a rare Goa trance group that essentialy influenced genre and one of the first who really brought the dark side of trance music to light with a rock and industrial influences in their works. Now, it has been 19 years since their first release and they’re back for more – more powerful than ever, but with straight-forward approach with best intention to break boundaries. Pete Martin left the UX project to focus and concetrate on his other side-projects, especially on the highly sucessful Coburn project.
In 2012, UX re-issued their classic Ultimate Experience – Reloaded, a 14-track version featuring remastered works with bonus tracks on Kissthesound Records and shortly after they signed some rare live bootleg remixes of old songs on CD entitled AUD‡SSEY (Live & Beyond) for Anjuna Records. Following the big disagreement with the label over a bad managment, UX decided to finish once and for all their 90’s sounding chapter resulting in abadoning the old songs in live shows. Soon after the project moved on and became Ultimate Xperience in 2016, finding a new home with Neogoa Records where they released a mini LP entitled Lazarus Rising in digital format. It is the first part of their forthcoming full-lenght album on CD – The Realm Of A New Dawn.
