Chris’ DJ roots can be traced back to Central Florida in the early 1990s. As one of the pioneers of a scene which mirrored the UK at the time, Chris held residencies at the legendary Aahz nights. These visionary nights served as a platform to bring Sasha and John Digweed to America for the first time, and establish an "Orlando" scene that would become the benchmark for the rest of the U.S in the subsequent years.
During the mid nineties, and as one of the first DJs to tour the country, Chris was one of the first to take advantage of the burgeoning U.S market. Keen to establish his production pedigree, he set up Fade Records and recorded under the same name. A string of hits for labels across the globe and as the pioneers of the extended remix, the “Fade Sanctuary” remixes became indispensable in every DJs box across the globe making Fade and Progressive house synonymous. No more was this the case than in 1998 with the release of Fade’s remix of Delerium’s “Silence.” The track went on to become a worldwide chart hit, hitting number one in four countries including Australia.
As Chris’ careers moves well into it’s second decade, he continues to juggle his worldwide schedule with his solo production career, while heading back into the studio for his first international compilation for 2 years, compiling the 7th release in the acclaimed Balance CD Series. The future looks as bright as the past for the Nick Lachee look-a-like from New York.
