Jox NYE radioshow on Partyzone.nu
?011 - what can we expect? 2011 is right ahead. But true to NYE tradition, the leading Danish webradio Partyzone.nu has gathered the DK forces for their view of the highlights from the year that passed. As usual, Henrik Hjarnoe has a slot to present the Jox selection. But this year, you can also enjoy DJ sets from Phillip Alpha, Tony Manic, DJ Zoo and others.
Up for an early memory boost? The 1993 Barbaque track "Distorgasm" is now on YouTube for the first time - and in high quality.
Not high art - but ended up to break ground for techno and trance in Denmark (due to the ironic vocal sample). Barbaque earned huge support on National radio and played to several rave parties up through the 90s.
Barbaque was one of Henrik Hjarnoe's first projects - produced with the Caucasuss guys.
DJ Ange returns to Insight Recordings with "113", a very solid slice of trance music. Remixes come courtesy of Binary Finary, Six Senses, Noctiva and none other than Michael Splint & Jox. Described as a touch techy and gritty treatment which ticks all the boxes for the deeper darker floor - capturing a minor scent of Knights Of The Jaguar.
In June, Swiss producer Andy Zufferey and sister Christine Zufferey released the beautiful "Blue" under their Heliophase guise - yet another melancholic bomb from Dave Joy's Joystick label.
Michael Splint & Jox have been busy doing a banging interpretation - will be available in an exclusive remix release later this autumn.
Tasadi remix out on promo
Lost Language return with "Jupiter"; the final and yet the best offering from the Holst inspired Tasadi album from last year. Jox rounds things off in a fine floor filling remix excursion that is already winning support from DJ Feel and Steve Anderson.
"Jupiter" is out June 21st.
Lost Language welcoming Jox
When the winter is now finally withdrawing, Jox is back with yet another remix offering. This time round, he has spiced up "Jupiter", one of last year's progressive highlights from Dallas-based producer Tasadi.
Jox has added a trancy "microbial'ish" vibe to the track, introducing punchy basslines and a soaring melody.
Forthcoming on Lost Language Recordings.
IDMA award nomination
The 2009 conceptual "Electronic Architecture" featuring the Jox single "Microbial" has been nominated for nothing less than an International Dance Music Award (IDMA), essentially the Oscars of Dance Music. The album has been nominated in the Best Full Length DJ Mix category undisputably due to its cutting-edge ideology and quality.

You can enjoy a slice of how Jox has beefed up "Filoselle Skies" by clicking here.
Naked once again
Despite already having remixed "Naked In The Rain" once for Blue Pearl, it was no trouble for Jox to create a totally different environment for Michael Parsberg's take on the classic. His powerful elektro feel and Nellie Ettison's huge vocal shaped some immediate ideas. And so Jox turned the remix into a deep progressive groover with soaring arpeggios, a taste of acid and - as always - lovely pads. Finally, he invited Nils Harbo to guest with some warm balearic guitar flavas.
Out now on MP1/Disco:Wax.
Jox doing Solarstone
Solaris Recordings has finally announced the X disc of Solarstone's album "Rain Stars Eternal", a remix album featuring new mixes of every track from the 2008 album. This 2.0 edition holds a fresh proggy Jox remix of the otherwise calm and deep "Filoselle Skies". Among the other names to contribute are Ferry Corsten, Bissen, Beetseekers and Probspot.
Street date: October 24th
Michael Splint & Jox remix
Yet another treat is in the pipeline on UK-label Unearthed Red. Jox recently teamed up with Michael Splint to do a remix of the new State Of Matter and Luke Terry release. Making full use of the original synth lines, Splint and Jox have introduced extra synths and piano riffs to give the track an entirely new dimension.
Also Hodel, Trance Arts and Chris Turner have added tweakings to the mix pack that has just been promoed to DJ's worldwide.
A treat for those in favour of taking time out to honour the past. A solid proof of having conceived an all-time crossover anthem, the Nagano All Stars project is a recurring YouTube magnet. "Push It To The Limit", which was co-produced by Henrik Hjarnoe and Nils Harbo, has firmly passed 25.000 views.
DJ Mag review Jox - Microbial(Crashing Waves) More fine fare drawn from Solarstone's 'Electronic Architecture' album, this has producer Jox summoning a full-blooded and surprisingly beefy trancer from the studio boxes. The chiming, lusty topline conjures all kinds of azure-coloured imagery, pointing 'Microbial' firmly in the direction of the Med.
DJ Mag's Top 100 Poll
Microbial is out now!
New Jox single out NOW on Crashing Waves Recordings! - a solid main room trancer, beautiful, melodic and sincere in its simplicity. Comes with a mammoth breakdown for those hands-in-the-air Gatecrasher moments!

Jox doing Dominik
Yet another fantastic Jox remix is coming up. German mastermind Dominik De Leon of DuMonde has prepared a full vocalled re-spin of "Everything Changes" from last year. None other than Burhan G has layed down great new vocals, and to complete the package, new remixes are commissioned. Jox have been asked to do the trancy take on the track, whilst the housier version come from TV Rock.
The Jox remix recycles the key elements from the original and tweaks the guitar melody into a banging trance riff.
Microbial has hit your store
The "music-meets art" odysee, Solarstone's carefully crafted "Electronic Architecture" CD including the new Jox brainchild "Microbial", is out now. Acclaimed by the Trance International pages as "it is THE album you don’t want to miss this year".
This spring, Jox joins the Solaris Recordings family, home of the likes of Forerunners, Matt Cerf and Solarstone. His latest "big-on-pads" conception "Microbial" is his contribution to the first chapter of the eagerly anticipated Solarstone compilation series "Electronic Architecture". The album is due April 6th.
Kickstarting 2009, brand new remixes are rising from the Jox staples this January. And this time round re-introducing Rey. - "A re-combination of our mind juices had been a subject of discussion for quite a while," Henrik says, "but when we were asked to remix the next release from Cristian Paduraru, we decided to act on it." Think Glenn Morrison meets Delerium. Think Rey's deep atmos and blissful pads meet the ever tight and dependable Jox grooves - and then add Erika's lovely vocal.
Jox & Rey's mutual recording history goes back to the 90s. A few of their early tunes as Solscape is again available from iTunes.

New Jox release
Henrik Hjarnoe has added the final spice to completely new Jox material - apparently to be released in the beginning of 2009. The track has been named "Microbial" due to its versatile arp patterns and lush pad melodies. "Microbial" is set to be the first original Jox production to be released since "Taruska" which was unleased in 2004.
Twenty years! How about that...
Wow! ... Week 39 it was exactly 20 years ago that Henrik Hjarnoe and his friend Michael Parsberg aired their very first broadcast on Radio Falcon. Their show expanded in rocket speed and is today considered a milestone in Danish history of club music, a first inspiration for many young producers whose works we enjoy today - and with guests like Ferry Corsten, GTO, Chicane, Apollo 440, Marc et Claude, Terry Lee Brown Jnr, Blank & Jones, Gianfranco Bortolotti, Faithless and the late Tony De Vit.
Radio Falcon closed in 2006.

Jox & Dan Nitro have thrown in their ruff-edged take on the Mark Eteson favourite and Godskitchen mayhem by Rewalkers & Eddie Sender. The track is appearing on the latest GK Underground compilation upon which the full-scaled mix pack will be unleashed by the end of 2008.
Suzy Solar rumour confirmed
After various hearsay floating around, it is now confirmed that Jox & Dan Nitro are laying down a track with Suzy Solar for her forthcoming artist album - being a result of their ferocious rerub of "Ocean Of Love" that torn US clubs apart last year. Throughout 2008, Suzy Solar will be producing ten brand new tracks for the album that also holds collaborations with Thomas Bronzwaer (aka Arizona), Terry Bones and Vast Vision.
Melodic paint by Jox on new Rey album
