Random XS

Random XS

But they developed their own unique style: dark and deep, yet intense and in-your-face. The vintage Roland x0x drum machines and analogue synthesizers play a key role in their live sets, but these are spiced up with mind-bending effects & sounds. Unlike many so-called ‘live' dance acts (who use more or less pre-recorded elements), Random XS always performs 100% live. Rhythms are programmed on the fly, ingredients are replaced all the time. So, no two gigs are alike. The live atmosphere adds a new and unpredictable dimension: a random excess!

History
Random XS was founded in 1991, when Sander Friedeman (aka DJ Zero One) joined forces with school-mate Arno Peeters (aka Sp@sms / TapeTV) to perform live on a small underground party in their hometown Utrecht. A tape with tracks from that gig was send to the then upcoming Djax-Up-Beats label. Their first 12" 'Give Your Body', with the 12 minutes long title track, was released. It quickly gained worldwide support from many famous DJs. This marked the start of a long international career. The ultra-dark 'Fading Away' from their second 12" was picked up by the legendary Sven Väth, who invited the band to perform at his infamous Omen club in Frankfurt.
In 1994, Arno Peeters left Random XS to be replaced by Frank de Groodt. More 12" releases followed, and in 1997 the full length album/CD 'Braincloud' was released, also on Djax-Up-Beats.

Live
Random XS performed in cities like Paris, Cologne, Basel, Glasgow, Brussels, Munich, Vienna & Chicago. They featured on big raves and festivals like the Berlin Love Parade, Mayday, Nature One and Mystery Land. However, they always tried to remain 'underground' and didn't sell out. Despite their commercial success, they kept playing on underground parties and squatter raves, too. In the late nineties, Zero One decided to focus more on his DJ career. He keeps performing live with Random XS only occasionally, and no new music is released.

Until 2015, when the first new Random XS 12” since 1997(!) was released on the Dutch Shipwrec Records. Appropriately called ‘The Return’, it marks the comeback of the Random XS project. The new sound is more mature, deeper than ever, but still focused on the dance floors around the world. Live, Zero One still performs together with Frank de Groodt, who is an established producer himself nowadays.
