X-Ecutioners Planning Tour Of Pacific Rim, United States

DJ collective the

X-ecutioners (formerly known as the X-Men), have announced a tour of the U.S.

and Pacific Rim, as part of their "X-pansion" tour.

According to organizers,

the DJ’s will hit the Pacific Rim starting March 10, 2005 with stops in

Seoul, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Taipei, three dates, in New Zealand and four

in Australia.

The crew will be

back in the United States, where they will tour from March 23 until April 15,


The quartet became

the X-ecutioners when they made the leap from battle-DJs to recording artists.

Founded in 1989

with the intention of dethroning the reigning battle-DJs of the time, Clark

Kent's Supermen, the crew has seen several changes of membership since its inception.

With the departure

of Rob Swift in 2004 Roc Raida, the only remaining founding member of the original

X-Men and Total Eclipse recently welcomed turntablists DJ Boogie Blind (Pharoahe

Monch/2000 Vestax World Champ) and DJ Precision (Beatdown World Champ 2002)

as official members of the touring group.

With its latest

members, The X-ecutioners have become a four-man DJ band again for the first

time since the departure of Mista Sinista.

The X-ecutioners

are touring in support of their Revolutions LP and their upcoming "Xpansion"

Mix CD.
