Chris got his decks around ’98, playing a mix of hip hop, electro and breaks before settling down with a love for techno a year or so later. Around the same time he started mucking about with hardware synths and sequencers, and gradually began putting together material for live sets.
After spending the next few years cutting his teeth at parties in Newcastle and beyond, Chris now holds residencies at London’s Hello Techno My Old Friend, and his own Hooked club night in Newcastle; where he has mixed and played live alongside many of the industry’s most renowned artists, including Jeff Mills, Ben Sims, Surgeon, Joris Voorn, Vince Watson, British Murder Boys, Christian Smith, Cari Lekebusch, Dave Angel, DJ Murphy Trevor Rockcliffe, Billy Nasty, Phil Kieron, Oliver Ho, and even Mixmaster Mike amongst others.
His Hooked events have also hosted the Newcastle Community Green Festival dance stage for the last 7 years, becoming a firm fixture in the regions summer festival calendar, relying on 100% home grown artists.
With a recent move to Amsterdam to hone his studio skills and work on his first album, Chris has a forthcoming remix of TokyoAcidCru’s “Acid Ride” – alongside Altern8’s Mark Archer – and his own ep later in the year on Testin Out.
