In 1995 we started to use software trackers and the first tracks took shape. There were 2 of us then, Fermin and Santi, and Xtensions Of Mind was born. In 1997 the band performed twice live by mixing tracks obtained by mixing the output sound from 2 computers. For these performances we synchronized our music with the images projected by another computer (fractals animated by self-generated programs, based on tempo and frequency components, all in real time).
For a while we discontinued our live gigs and embarked on studio experimentation. We left tracker software to move onto a more professional hardware-based work system. In 1999 we incorporated our first synthesizers and another member joined in: Angel. From then we set off to develop a work technique based on MIDI sequencing and mixing.
At the end of 2001, Santi left the band and we changed the band's name to Dilo.
At the beginning of 2002, Jordi Aranes joins the band and Dilo begins a new project blending Fermin's and Angel's electronic music experiences with Jordi's organical influences on the arrangements and the instruments. Since then, Dilo has been searching for its own identity as a band and its own distinctive sound.
In 2004, Dilo releases Robots, its first disk and publishes its music on its own web, under a Creative Commons license.
Dilo has played in several festivals and locations like: Festival Djs contra la fam (Barcelona), Festival FIRE (Gallur, Zaragoza), Festinoval (Lleida) and the 18º Festival pop-rock Villa de Bilbao (Bilborock).
In 2007, Dilo releases the its second album: Screwed, a more electro and pop album.
