Trans-X was a Canadian 1980s dance band best known for their hit song "Living on Video".

Trans-X was started by Pascal Languirand in 1981, when their first song "Living on Video" was released. In 1982, Trans-X released another song "Message on the Radio" which didn't make the charts. In 1985, Pascal decided to retire as Trans-X after his last song "3-D Dance" was released. This song made the charts in Canada but not in the United States. After the song was released Pascal went silent for a few years and decided to continue his solo career with New Age music instead of Electronica. In 1998, he released his "Greatest Hits" album. In 2003, Pascal decided to return as Trans-X and made a remake of his popular song called "Living On Video 2003" The song was a combination of New Wave Electronica synthesizers and higher-pitched vocals. Pascal's newest hit, "Living On Video 2k6" was released on May 6, 2006.
