Just a month after signing his rst record deal in 2003, Chris kicked off an international DJ career with a high pro le set, playing the rst Saturday night at a new prestigious club in the heart of Shibuya, Tokyo. The night before, Chris had handed a white-label promo of ‘Dub Sonar’ to none other than renowned house DJ Satoshi Tomiie. Taking place on Chris’ 23rd birthday, his set was so well received that the promoters rebooked him two months later.
Back home, the hype surrounding Chris’ productions and projects continued to grow. ‘Dub Sonar’ had received high pro le DJ support from Sasha, Quivver, Nick Warren, Sander Kleinenberg, Slacker and Jonathan Lisle, and the dance press sat up and took notice. The rst single received great reviews in DJ mag, IDJ, DMC Update and M8 magazine, and a full page feature in M8 magazine followed soon after.
Chris’ growing reputation as a prominent producer was solidi ed further with his remix of Flash Brothers’ ‘Ways’, which again received high pro le DJ support from Sasha and further good press in DJ mag and M8 magazine, and the remix even topped the in uential Hooj.com weekly chart. By this stage Silver Planet had asked Chris to compile and mix their third instalment of the Fear series, following in the footsteps of James Holden and the Flash Brothers.
Following the Fear 3 compilation and his 'Future House' mix on Kickin' Records, Chris' artist album, ‘No Surrender’, was released in 2009 and again received strong support from the UK dance press, with DMC Update giving the album 4/5, ‘Endgame’ (1st single) 4/5 and DJ Mag giving ‘Ik Ben Terug’ (2nd single) 3/5.
Having played alongside Hybrid, Phil K, Futureshock, Phil Kieran, Slacker, Andy Moor, Ashley Casselle, Jody Wisternoff and Lexicon Avenue, with headline DJ sets in nine different countries and a 3 year DJ residency at London’s renowned Electronic Sessions, Chris is now focusing back on his production and remix work – with new tracks out in 2018 and 2019.
