Back Story, Chris in his own words:
I was born in 1979, in a small city called Merano in the north of Italy close to Austria.
When I was eight or nine years old I started buying cassettes to listen to music, and swapping music with friends.
When I was fourteen I was started going to parties. I saw the DJ and people dancing in front of him. At that point I decided that was what I wanted to do. Two months after this I was buying my first turntables. It wasn't Technics because I didn't have enough money, so I bought Gemini, but three months later I sold them and bought two Technics 1210mk2s and a two channel Gemini mixer and I started to practice every day, like a child when he gets a new game. My first clubbing experience as a DJ was for small parties in Merano, my city. I was 15 and just made promotion by telling people there was a party with free entry! People started coming from the towns around and I felt, wow, this is what I want to do for a long time in my life.
After that, things moved on with these defining moments:
NYE 2000, playing in front of 4000 people in my city on a open air stage.
Summer 2006 when I became resident DJ for BCM Planet Dance in Mallorca, and could play with loads of international DJs and producers.
Summer 2007 when I won the DJ competition for best DJ in Magaluf. That was when I started to guest at different clubs in the UK.
Summer 2010 when I played on a Lovemobile at the Street Parade in Zurich, Switzerland in front of nearly one million party people.
Summer 2011 when I played my first time in Gibraltar. It's a very small country but people there love to party and listen to the music.
Now I feel like it's time to step forward into production. I know it is a new level for me, but I can and will do it.
This year my aim is to make two really good productions and hope that people will love the music, then we will see what happens.
