You would be hard pushed to find another artist like Chris Finke. Whether it's smashing dancefloors worldwide with his unique mix of techno, bass and anything else he feels like, holding down a 9 year residency at the UK's biggest and best techno institution “Atomic Jam”, his diverse bass-shaking production and remix work, or his cutting edge broadcasting career, the boy has “been there - done that” and is just getting going. With his debut EP on Luke Slater's “Mote Evolver” imprint about to drop, plus the launch of his own high profile weekly radio show coming soon, business is about to boom!
Raised on a steady diet of rave, house and techno, his early days saw him compete in the UK DMC championships, and he soon combined his turntablism and love for techno when he started the “Flux” parties and record label. From there, he hooked up with Ben Sims to form “Split”, a series of game changing parties for the London techno scene, selling out Turnmills, SE1, The Key, plus European tour dates as they went. In addition, their 4 year long “Split Radio Show” was a true techno institution - syndicated worldwide on both FM and internet stations enjoying a massive, loyal following of listeners tuning in each month.
Chris’s electrifying and highly technical DJ sets have taken him all around the world, from New York to Japan; Moscow to Singapore and just everywhere in between. He is the sole resident DJ at the seminal UK techno institution Atomic Jam and has held international residencies at Decadence in Ghent, Belgium and La Coruna in Spain. His appearances continue to prove incredibly popular and he is just as at home playing at Fabric in London or Glastonbury Festival as he is at intimate clubs like Doornroosje in Holland or Unit in Tokyo. His true musical versatility as a DJ has been a great asset in being able to electrify even the most clued up crowds, from upfront techno & bass to edgy, eclectic sets across the board.
His big-room productions such as ‘Petrolbomb’, ‘Shut that Door’ and ‘Dance of Death’, along with killer remixes such as Mark Broom’s ‘Got Me Working’ and a Guy Called Gerald’s classic ‘Blow your House Down’ have helped secure him as a regular fixture in the charts and radio playlists of a huge number of DJs the world over. He employs the same DJ sensibilities when approaching his work, never satisfied with repeating himself and pushing the dancefloor in all directions.
As if that's not enough, Chris also finds the time to teach DJing and music production both privately and around the world for the Ministry of Sound, appearing on UK national TV's “The Gadget Show” and others along the way.
