With the field of house music DJs continuing to expand exponentially, it’s become increasingly difficult for anyone talented to stand out. That is, of course, unless you are Chris Costanzo.
In what seems like overnight, this extremely gifted young DJ/Producer has infiltrated Philadelphia’s formidable nightlife scene with his brilliant remix work and residencies at two of the city’s most popular nightclubs, Babylon and Emerald City. Combining a lifelong love of music with a passion for the dance floor, Chris Costanzo works to create an energy on the floor that is all his own. With an appetite for massive, hands-in-the-air anthems, tough, tribal beats and pumping, underground house sounds, Chris knows how to bring a dance floor to life, unleashing wave after wave of energy with seamless mixing and a natural ability to connect with his audience.
Born and raised in Philadelphia, Chris has spent the past 21 years developing his musical ear. From the age of 14, he has been honing his skills on the turntables, first spinning for friends at private parties in the early 80’s, then taking on small club gigs, perfecting the sound that would lead to his major club debut at Philadelphia’s Babylon nightclub in 1998. With Chris at the musical controls, his vigorous 11-hour live sets more than doubled the club’s attendance to over 2,000 appreciative fans. Chris Costanzo became a welcome addition to a scene that craves his positive energy.
Working even harder to take his artistry to the next level, Chris’s career burgeoned with performances at New York City’s Tunnel Nightclub and, soon after, Exit Nightclub. Now, more than eight years later, there is no doubt that Chris has made his mark on the City of Philadelphia. He currently holds the coveted residency at Emerald City Nightclub.
Chris’s extraordinary talent and showmanship is perhaps best appreciated during his live DJ sets. “It’s more about how I play the records as opposed to which records I play,” offers Chris. Without a doubt, he is one of the hardest working people in the game and destined to become a household name. Undeniably bound for superstar status, Chris’s live performances transcend the dance floor, inspiring awe and cultivating a diverse following of revelers. Chris Costanzo is ready to conquer the world.
