Born Bryan Jenkins in 1983, growing up in North Platte, Nebraska. His first foray into audio came after spending time in music forums. In 2002, Cryptic-X received some beats from a user on Faygoluvers.net to hone his skills with. Working on cracked versions of Cakewalk and Sony’s ACID, Cryptic-X crafted his first mixtape “Style X”. Some say if you scour the internet long enough or go through some rural Nebraska basements you may still find a copy of the original “Style X”.
Now residing in Lincoln, Nebraska, Cryptic-X is absorbed in his craft, mixing and producing full time.
In December 2019, he founded Killing Field Records with his brother Jinx.
