A year later and Chris found himself upon the sunny shores of Crete, Greece! Being only 17 years old, and rocking the Corrali Beach Club every night, Chris knew this was the start of something big!

The following years would take Chris to perform in Spain and back to his home town in the UK where he studied Dance Music Production and also continued to perfect his DJ’ing skills.

After finishing college Chris was ready to travel once again, and this time headed to Bahrain to be resident DJ in Bahrain’s newest Club, Club F1, which was regularly turning in 800 people a night.

As well as DJ’ing Chris is also producing his own tracks and has featured on 8 compilation albums along side artists such as DJ Tiesto, Fire & Ice, Yves Deruyter to name a few artists, as well as having his own single.

Recently to add to the music production, Chris has remixed songs from David Guetta, Michel Cleis, Larse and most recently a trance classic Binary Finary – 1998, which has gained support from Binary Finary themselves at recent gigs.
