Formed in Copenhagen early in the '90s, Koxbox made some of the first moves toward the psychedelic trance sound that became a standard later in the decade. The duo was formed by Frank E (aka Frank Madsen) and Peter Candy, who first met back in 1980 while playing in rock bands around Copenhagen. They became friends, and presented their own show on Danish radio, moving into techno by the end of the '80s. The first Koxbox productions appeared on WTP Records, which got them signed to the leading European trance label, Harthouse. Their debut album, 1995's Forever After, was recorded with the help of third member Ian Ion, a studio engineer and producer. As trance exploded during the '90s, Koxbox recorded for two of the best labels on the scene, Blue Room Released ("Stratosfear") and T.I.P. ("Reoscillated"). The second Koxbox album, Dragon Tales, appeared on Blue Room Released in 1997. Unfortunately, Frank E and Peter Candy's working relationship soured by 1999 and Koxbox appeared to call it quits. ~ John Bush
