TRANSWAVE are Christof Drouillet (aka Absolum) & Frederic Holyszewski (aka Deedrah)
Christof and Frederic met at a French Rave party in Paris back in June 1994. Three months later, the first Transwave release (Datura EP) was launched on Loren X’s French label “Transpact”.
Over the following years, Transwave released five albums: Hypnorhythm (Step 2 House, France – 1995), Helium (Matsuri, UK – 1996)and Phototropic (Distance, France – 1996), Backfire (3D Vision, Spain – 2005) and Frontfire (Fineplay, Japan – 2007). They’ve been touring around the world, experiencing great success in the psychedelic trance underground scene and scoring an international trance hit with their famous “Land of Freedom” (lately remixed by Liquid Soul for Perfecto Fluoro, and charted by Armin Van Buuren).
Transwave is known for its heavy use of analog studio gear , like the ROLAND SH-101 and TB-303 .Their distinctive sound made them a yardstick of the Goa ERA of the 90’s with artists like Man with No Name, Astral Projection, Xdream or Hallucinogen.
