Sam Norton (b. 1990), aka Oxidyzer, hails from Moscow, Russia. He started his music experiments back in mid-2000s, inspired by Martin L. Gore, Trent Reznor and Blixa Bargeld. For many years, Norton was frontman of an underground Moscow-based synthpop/industrial band, in which he gained a valuable experience in making electronic music.
Although his main passion is industrial and complex experimental music, his close friend Sauerwelt showed him a world of pumping techno/trance sound and the magic of 303 bass. In 2008 he started electronic project “Oxidyzer” along with Sauerwelt to explore and expand this wonderful musical world.
