|Moniker(s) / ||Chris E.|
Chris discovered early in his life, affected by the Acid House music in the late 80s and the radio sessions of the youth scene in the early 90s, his desire to be part of this music movement and lifestyle. At 14 years old he bought his first turntables and soon after started his adventure to become a DJ. In 1992 he held his first gigs in small youth clubs near Weimar. This period was a difficult time for electronic music in this region, but he was determined to continue his dream. During the next years the interest in electronic music grew and Chris started playing often in clubs in Weimar, Erfurt and Dresden. In 1994, with friends of his, he started a party series at the Gerberstrasse 3. During the years his style began to change, starting with Breakbeats and English Rave. Later, Chris grew into Hardtrance and Acid Music until he was transformed by the minimalist sounds of Studio 1 by Wolfgang Voigt released in 1995. After a short break from the music scene he began his comeback at the turn of the century. These new projects started while he was studying in Ilmenau, where he managed the DJ-Café at the Bc-Studentesclub. At the Bc-Club he was also responsible for organizing the guest DJs for the electronic music. Since 2007 he has been a member of the Dance and Sound combination project called Tanz & Klangkombinat, which is a collaboration of artists in the area of Thuringia, Leipzig, Frankfurt and Berlin with its own party series. Beginning of 2010 he also joined the Legotek crew. In the future he is looking forward to new ventures...
