Chris, a collector of hip hop, funk, soul boogie and related beats and jazz based music since the late eighties first came to prominence as a club DJ in the mid 90s through his 10 year role as resident DJ and promoter at Substance (one of the UK's largest and longest running hip hop and funk nights). An album release for Different Drummer and a 2 year spell as mix DJ on BBC Radio 1Xtra took Chris' production and DJ talents to a national audience. In recent years a steady output of high profile singles, remixes mix albums has allowed Chris to DJ around the globe.

In 2010, Chris was named as one of nine 'Stars of the Future' by Mixcloud and ranked a respectable #17 in the site's top 100 DJs of 2010. In the past year Chris has joined the ranks of respected UK labels BBE and Breakin Bread, releasing three official mix albums for the former and series of tropical 7" singles for the latter. Chris is currently hard at work in the studio producing a new album for BBC New Urban Music Award winning band 'Maylight', a seven piece outfit fusing jazz, soul and electronics featuring the vocal talents of Tru Thoughts' Lizzy Parks.
