XMOD Records is a House, Techno, and Electronica Record Label founded in 2018 by John Powers AKA OSC3.
John Powers entered the Electronic Music World in 1991. Being located for the Navy in Hawaii, he was exposed to the bustling, Entertainment and Club scene there. It was such a great experience he decided to get a job in the Club industry. At first he worked as a Lighting Director at “Pink’s Garage”in Honolulu. His Musical inspirations came from such talents such as Frankie Knuckles, Joy Beltram, Utah Saints, Altern 8, The Shamen, N-Joi, and 808 State.
Pursuing his love for the Music, he eventually, started to Deejay and landed his first main gig and was picked up to play at one of the biggest Stint in Honolulu at“The Garage” formerly known as “Pink’s Garage”a Warehouse style Club, and had his first Residency there in 1992.
In 1993 He moved back to Kansas, and due the lack of an Electronic Music scene, John decided to evolve and tour with Local Rock Bands, by playing Guitar and Keyboard. After a few Years and still hungry for the Electronic Music, he returns to his first love and started to Deejay and also to produce his own gems. With the new move he coined the artist name “Powerhouse” and performed locally in the vicinity of Kansas City, mixing genre from Techno to House and Electronica. During that Time he decided to plunge into production and created some Techno Tracks and also to form a Duo with a Friend which together they performed Live, by bringing the diverse Keyboards and Synths onto the Stage.
John decided to form XMOD Records as a way to get new talent heard and exposed to the masses and to help artist grow.
