“…With an intelligent approach to House music like his, there’s no doubt

Few electronic artists today have the necessary skills and experience to do what Chris 3PO has done. Since his DJ career began in early 1993 in Buffalo, NY 3PO has been thrilling and filling dance floors all over the world with his mix of Funky/Tribal/Electro beats.

3PO developed his sound in Buffalo, NY where he found himself amidst a small, but dedicated and growing underground club/rave scene. With Toronto, Canada a short drive away, 3PO was within earshot of some of the hottest electronic talent around. His career soon brought him to New York City where his surrounding influences led to his current blend of uplifting House music.

3PO’s style is attributed to a good upbringing of Funk, Soul, New Wave, Motown, James Brown, Doc Martin, and many other subtle artistic and cultural textures that make his sound complete. Once in NYC, 3PO’s demand brought him to the stage with such luminaries as DJ DAN, CHEMICAL BROTHERS, THE ORB, BAD BOY BILL, DERRICK CARTER, KEOKI to name a few. 3PO was also chosen to perform with a virtual who’s who of electronica at WEMF ‘99 & ’01, a three day music festival in Canada with over 10,000 in attendance, and continues to keep a busy schedule playing many of the hottest clubs and raves in locations like Venezuela, Toronto, Switzerland, Quebec, Dominican Republic, Ottawa, San Francisco, Mexico, New Orleans, Miami, Gainesville, North Carolina, Boston, as well as NYC’s legendary clubs like Twilo, Centro-Fly, Tunnel, Roxy, Exit, Soundfactory & Vinyl (Arc). His passionate sets and mix tapes have brought him accolades from Tribe Magazine & XLR8R, BPM, Radio One, as well as frequent guest spots on Pseudo.com and Solid State on NYC’s KROCK radio station with DJ Liquid Todd.
