From the young age of 12, when Chris first got his hands on one of his dad’s turntables at home, and attempted to scratch the needle on one of the family’s LP collection… an album by 70’s disco icons Boney M, he had no idea that 20 years later he would still be DJing… Being a “self-taught” DJ, the rise from bedroom banger to professional DJ took a few years of hard work, dedication & Chris X’s undying love for music, but by 1999 Chris X had already been known to leave dancefloors screaming for more!
Chris-X realised a few years ago that his true-calling was trance & hard dance and has been playing nothing but music that leaves crowds captivated in a euphoric & bass-thumping mash-up of ROCKIN music that just “makes you wanna move!”
Chris X has always kept a close finger on the pulse of the dance music scene, seeing the scene evolve from the early days of Dome, Monkey, Pharmacy, BASS-Station, Evolution & a weekly Hard Kandy, to Today’s PHD @ INFLATION, INFEKTED @ INFLATION and also 3D @ CBD NIGHTCLUB, always playing a wide variety of everything from Tek Trance to Electro to Minimal to Hardstyle to Hard Trance to Uplifting Trance to Classics and Anthems!!!
Chris X is a dj that plays the music FOR the people; being a “Raise Your Hands-In-The-Air” kinda dj, always revving up crowds wherever he plays, promising no less than the best in Trance & Hardstyle!
