Shadow Fx was created in 2002 by 25 year old James Hayes from Melbourne, Australia. James started his musical career studying and playing drums and guitar in high school. Then at the age of seventeen he discovered psytrance in and around the famous trance hotspot of Byron Bay. After listening to and Dj’ing the music for several years, he decided to move to Melbourne and make a serious effort to put his own mark on the scene. He bought a computer and started to produce full time, leading him to the smooth and refined sound for which he is known today. In recent years he has played at many parties all over Australia including Rainbow Serpent, Earthdance and Audiogasm. He has also released compilation tracks on ZMA and Zenon, plus on Cosmic Conspiracy records with his brother Tetrameth. Shadow Fx has created a smooth blend of deep, funky, morning progressive that is distinctively shaped from the Zenon sound.
