Olivier Raymond, born 1971 in Grenoble (France), got into [i]black music[/i] (disco & funk) in his early teens. During the collage years Olivier befriended [a=Stephane Deschezeaux], another young man passionate about this music. They made their debut on a local radio station broadcasting a radio show dedicated to Funk. Olivier, only 15 years old, started mixing. Olivier’s mixes were influenced by a large spectrum of music styles : electro-funk (Afrika Bambaata…), italo-disco, new-wave (Depeche Mode, New Order) and the early Chicago and New-York house scene.

1995, Olivier and Stéphane meet Michel Amato ([a=Hacker, The]), Alex Reynaud and [a=Kiko] in Grenoble, the electronic city in France. Together with Kiko, Olivier creates [l=Ozone records] on which [a=Oxia] released their first EP which was influenced by American techno. Also on this label Olivier co-produced the first releases of [a=Jack de Marseille] and made a couple more EP’s with Stephane before splitting up though as good friends. [a=Oxia] became Olivier his solo project while Stéphane is now one part of [a=Human Body].

1998 Oxia created a new label with [a=Hacker, The] (Michel Amato) and Alexandre Reynaud (manager). They baptized it [l=Goodlife] in homage to the mythical [a=Inner City] track.
