an incoming concierge service, taking care of clients, who
want to experience the legendary Moscow nightlife.
Chris also wrote a book (himself) about his party life,
called: “Fucking Moskau!



Already in high school Chris had a special taste for music. He was known
for compiling the best mixtapes and had frequently been invited to dj at
friends house parties. During this time, in the mid eighties, he played old
school hip hop and an early RnB style, on classic vinyl.
Being an extremes pro snowboarder in the 90s, Chris also became known
for organizing (and playing at) some of the best snowboarder parties. He
also had columns in all German language snowboard magazines, where
He met with bands, like the Beastie Boys, and wrote about them.
Chris’s girlfriend was the snowboard champion of Berlin and during the
early 90s, he spent most summers there. His girlfriends brother was a
“technocrat”, who pulled Chris through all legendary techno clubs, like
Bunker, Tresor or Café Moskau.
Thee friends of these times are now
among Berlin’s top DJs, producers, club owners, promoters and party kings.

Coming to Moscow in 2003, Chris was introduced
to the club-scene by his friends and djed a Soulful
Funky House session at the famous “Garage Club”.
In 2006 Chris’s friend “Chrome” organized some of
the best (hip hop based) Mashup parties in
Germany, called YUM YUM. Chris was the
first to play Mashups in Moscow and brought YUM YUM
to Russia.

Thee first YUM YUM sessions took place at
“Solyanka” club, one of the biggest influencers to
Moscows underground scene and electronic music.
Theis is, where Chris met minimal and tech-house
and became friends with some of Russia’s best
underground DJs.
In 2012, aft e r a period of Mashups, as so many of
his Berlin based friends (e.g. Ninetoes, Hyenah),
which he brought to Moscow as well, Chris got
bored and decided to only play tech- & deep-house.
From 2013 Chris shared a fluat with the culture manager of
Red Bull, who is also a known DJ and both tingled
through festivals and parties, like Sonar, meeting with
some of the worlds best DJs and producers.
Thai s is the time, when he met Marco Passarani, who’s disco-edit
project “Tiger Woods” had a great influence and is still
present in Chris’s take on “Future Disco” today.
But, Chris always never forgot his Berlin days in the early
techno scene, combined with the techhouse, he heard at
“Solyanka”. Since 2014 he is playing tech himself. Various
nuances of that. Sometimes more dub or downbeat, but
also pumping tech(no) during a morning after hour.

With the support of AlpakaClan Booking, he exercises his passion as a DJ
and painting artist in the CLAN.
There are many projects and gigs that this artist will have ahead of him, cementing a bright
