He is founder of Tripnotic Downtempo Lounge and the host of the Tripnotic Downtempo Podcast which has an impressive dedicated worldwide listenership.A long time Hip Hop listener and musician, ThirdEyeFX began his adventures into the sounds of Trip Hop when he borrowed LPs of Portishead’s “Dummy” and Massive Attack’s “Protection” from DJ Audioptic in the Mid-Nineties. Soon after he was inspired to produce Trip Hop using a friends MPC, Soundedit, and Cubase.In 1996, he first used the name “Tripnotic” (combining Hypnotic + Trip Hop) as a title for a cassette that he gave to twelve of his closest friends. The cassette was made splicing old tapes he had of songs he recorded from various tapes and radio and recorded to another tape deck using a small mixer. The following year, he gave his friends a CD called “Food for thought” that had four 20 minute mixes named “Appetizer”, “Main Course”, “Dessert”, and “Tomorrow’s leftovers”.
