Boxia has been around for about a year now, mainly dealing in under the counter tracks to some of the DJ elite. The mysterious moniker has gained support from the likes of Randomer, Alan Fitzpatrick, Darius Syrossian, Victor Calderone, Kry Wolf, Jon Rundell, Mella Dee, Monki, Chunky and many more, propelling Boxia’s tracks into the underground domain. You can catch a steady stream of releases and remixes for the likes of Food Music and Waveforms Records which have recently come out.
