Forest Parties

Franké Bio Frank'e, started Koxbox in the late 80 ́s, influenced by bands such as Kraftwerk, Front 242, Tangerine and Nu Beat. After releasing the first single on Where's Is The Party recordings, Koxbox came to the notice of DJ Sven Väth who signed the project up to his seminal Harthouse label, releasing six singles before the first album, Forever After. The album was widely recognized and increased the band's profile considerably. With the success, Koxbox decided to try out the material in front of a live audience and the unit had their debut together with house act Fluke at The Blitz in Denmark.

In 1997, Koxbox decided to sign with the London electronica label, Blueroom Released and in November 1997 the album Dragon Tales was unleashed. Dave Fowler in Muzik magazine called them "probably the most in-yer-face psychedelic outfit ever" and in the same year there were Koxbox remixes for Juno Reactor and Slinky Wizard.

In the summer of '99, after some exciting gigs all over the world, Koxbox released 'The Great Unknown' on Novatek, a radical departure from the known Koxbox style, slower and more funky, but retaining the crystalline production and the exquisite application of state of the art technology for which the band is known.

The Great Unknown went on to become one of the best selling psy-trance albums of the new millennium, backed with a number of gigs all over the world that established Koxbox as one of the leading bands on the scene.
