Naxxos is a unique project in many aspects. Composed by a doctor and a sound engineer, the two friends started making music together when they were in high school, back in 2010. Three years later, the Naxxos project came out and their first released track – New Orleans – became a worldwide success as a pioneer song of the Tropical House. From this moment they were traveling around the world between their studies, being regular students, and an international act at the same time.
Four years later, they are coming back with a totally new challenge: the production of a new EP that aims to take the project into the future bass, trap, and other undiscovered areas. With their experience and their unique touch, they are taking the project to a new horizon. This new direction representing the core of the NAXXOS project, being authentic by producing the music they like to play and share.
