Chris soon discovered a love for the art of DJing and his talent for spinning heavy beats found an appreciative audience at various nightclubs across the greater New York area. Chris’ ability to produce a natural steady groove also led to his being in demand by several up and coming bands across New York State.

In his time off from rehearsal he found himself in recording studios laying down tracks, developing his unique sound and dabbling in the art of remixing. Zilos can currently be found in the studio working on various projects for both major and indie labels. He is always pushing the envelope, experimenting with new sounds and techniques in order to remain on the cutting edge of the music industry. Chris considerable talents have been featured on the hot new track on Amathus Music titled Under Your Spell by Sophia Cruz, which has been steadily climbing the charts worldwide. “When I hear dance music the feeling I get is unexplainable, but to create it is a feeling I wish everyone could experience,” Chris enthuses.
