All Music Guide:
After spending a number of years playing with Silver Apples, multi-instrumentalist Xian Hawkins struck out on his own as a one-man bedroom recording project under the moniker of Sybarite. Through his use of mid-tempo electronic beats with an inspiration of classical music, Emanate Records released Sybarite's debut EP, entitled Meusic, in 1999 which was shortly followed by the Otonomy EP through Static Caravan Records in 2000. That same year, Temporary Residence Limited put out Sybarite's first full-length, Musicforafilm, while ZEAL followed in 2001 with the 7" single "Engaged"/"Without Nothing I'm You."
