One of the founding artists of EarToGround & LDNwht, label owner of the Prodigal Son and Quant labels. Also resident DJ for the legendary Jaded at Corsica Studios...
Londoner Chris Stanford, a well respected DJ first and foremost, with over a decade of experience in the clubs. In recent years most of which has been with his residency Jaded held at Corsica Studios every Sunday, where he has proven his capability to play for hours and with his consistency to perform each time with a unique, forward thinking set. He carries reputation for never the same set twice, is a strong supporter of new music and couldn't be further away from the relentless anthem bashers. He has always believed in underground music and his belief is that techno should push forward, not become a hit parade. His art see’s him travel for gigs in places like Berlin, Paris, Brussels Mannheim, Ibiza, Malta. As well as Glasgow, Birmingham, Bristol and other UK cities.
He is also a label boss and A&R for some much revered labels. After a number of years running parties in the capital, Chris along with his partner Jackie and then co-producer Dax J, helped their friend Gareth Wild in the early days of EarToGround Records. It was created as a platform for releasing their own music and showcasing others and now has around 20 vinyl releases under its belt and a sister project LDNwht which releases white label VA's. With their knowledge of the industry gained through the ETG project they went on to start further labels of their own, Dax J with Monnom Black, Jackie with Linda Records and Chris with Prodigal Son.
Prodigal Son already shaping a new family with Exal from Paris, Stephanie Sykes and He/aT both from the Midlands, UK. A successful beginning with remixes from Inigo Kennedy, Ansome, Edit Select and Hector Oaks, with more to come with each release in 2017.
This year Chris will release his first ever solo EP on Prodigal Son, but before that his remix for German label Lanthan Audio of "Empty Vision - Vision III" comes out on, limited transparent mint green vinyl this Spring.
