Started September 2006, initially MixWaves was composed by 3 members:
MDashK, creator of the team, Zeru (his best friend, no longer a member), Erik JS (a big brasilian friend) and Strikker (a good friend from tha internetz!).
Together in team, our objective is to simply create music.
Over the time, Erik JS and Strikker made some musics, but because of personal issues, they started to lack time to create musics. Even I lack the time and nowadays my activity has been pretty low.
I guess MixWaves evolved in a way that, today, it's not a 3 member band anymore. It's more of a 1 member band that features works of some friends has well. Kinda like lots of the musics that exist nowadays like "This Guy feat. That Guy"... I mean, I could change the band name to MDashK and nobody would care (laughs). But no, I created MixWaves and I intent to keep the name that way.
