Xhin (pronounced as "sheen") has been crafting ominous cuts of cutting-edge electronic music since 1997. Building a forte in sound design, he is best described as a sound futurist. His identical rhythmic structure and compositional techniques, which incorporate elements of techno, tight sub-bass, ambient, and IDM, deliver a hint of a chaotic soundscape amidst artistry. A Singaporean by birth and residence, he independently released "Xycle," a self-promotional EP that garnered industry attention, in early 2003. He then followed it with his debut album, "Supersonicstate," the following year.
In 2006, his talent was discovered by a German independent record label, Meerestief. His remix of Dublin's Five Green Circle's track entitled "Ronan's BBQ" created a storm over Europe, praised, supported, and charted by heavyweights from the world of electronic music. Three years later, Xhin found a new home when he joined Berlin's then-new techno label, Stroboscopic Artefacts, to release his dark, intense, and experimental side of things. This marked the beginning of a new old direction for him to explore and experiment with sounds even deeper in his future releases.
