X-Fusion is the name of a solo electronic music project by German Musician, Producer & DJ, Jan L. He began releasing acid house tracks in 1988, and by 2000, the project had become an aggrotech project. To this date, X-FUSION has released several albums.

Beginnings[edit]

In 1988, Jan L. began producing music on a Commodore 64, in combination with organ sequences. Soon he upgraded to better equipment, suitable for producing high-quality music.

In 1991 his first demo tape, called “Syndromic Noise“, was produced. It, and his next demo tape, are usually classified as hard trance. Soon he began performing live at techno parties. This earned him exposure in local techno-trance scenes.

His music after this point was darker, and soon evolved to aggrotech. This music caught the attention of independent label Dark Dimensions/SCANNER, who signed him in 2003. This was the beginning of X-FUSION as it exists today.

The 2004 album Beyond the Pale reached number 6 on the Deutsche Alternative Charts,[1] and the 2007 album Rotten to the Core reached #16 for the year.[2] In 2008, Vast Abysm went to #2[3] and in 2009, Ultima Ratio also peaked at #2.[4]

Noisuf-X is X-Fusion's side project. It can best be described as power noise, though it also contains some breakcore and technoid influences. Noisuf-X has released six albums to date.
