The due joined forces in 2002 and since then have released tracks in leading compilations of labels such as T.I.P world, HOMmega, Spun and Crystal Matrix. Their joint venture albums – “Temporary Insanity” (2004), “XI” (2005) and "The Beast Within" (2007) delivered psychedelic trance fused with metallic sounds and highly influenced by the techno & breakbit genres. A new formula with a huge production of action packed, epic music, fitting both morning and night time moods.
This new direction of the duo was outstanding and it was not long before the biggest names in the scene Like Astrix, 1200mics, Etnica, Domestic & X-noiZe came knocking for remixes. These days XI are working on new tracks and collaborations with some of the leading artists in the scene.
Janux Dj Janux the name comes from 'Janus' a mythical Roman god who has two faces one dark, one light - one looking into the past, one looking into the future. Janux plays strong twilight music, and powerful morning sounds. A DJ who plays the correct style for the correct time and place. His roots in music started in the mid 80s in Goa where he was a kid growing up in the early roots of the trance scene.
Karan Third Eye Karan is the label owner and founder of Third Eye Records. His musical education and training goes back to when he was a child - growing up in a family of musicians he originally used to play acoustic guitar and was seriously into songwriting.
Today Karan is one of the premier psychedelic morning DJs in India. He refers to himself as a morning dancefloor blast specialist, who really knows how to get the crowd worked into a total frenzy. His playing style is a perfect blend of raw power with touches and hints of emotion to keep the feeling balanced. He has honed his skills playing in Goa for the very famous Hill Top New Year’s festivals for the past 5 years in a row - always in the prime time of the hot Goa sun and not disappointing a soul on the dancefloor. One of his main tricks is that he likes to play and mix in tracks with Indian sounds and influences as he feels that’s what makes his sets more unique and gives them an identity.
