Nuevamente en la ciudad de Aguascalientes, por segunda vez y por su última y exitosa presentación, Chris ahora en el club Caferoma.
Chris Fortier, asociado a la escena underground, protagonista del compilado Balance, su trabajo bajo su alias 40oz y su álbum debut As Long as the Moment Exists.
El cd Balance ofreció algo genuinamente excitante y underground al mercado de compilaciones. Figuran tracks de un amplio espectro musical, como los David Gilmore Girls, Global Communication y Floppy Sounds, como así también Slam, Matthew Jonson, Rabbit in the Moon y Bent. No sorprende saber que fue mencionado como mejor compliación del año por varias publicaciones especializadas.
Bajo su pseudónimo 40oz, Chris ha sacado varios EPs por Cocoon, Kompakt y Get Physical. Destacan sus remixes de Alexi Delano, Joshua Collins, Lee Burridge, Freaky Chakra y John Selway, que muestran su enfoque musical que rompe las barreras de cualquier etiqueta. En 2007, su album debut recibió uns crítica fenomenal que lo llenó de elogios. No satisfecho con el status quo, sigue en su búsqueda por romper las barreras en cada incursión musical.
Con su experiencia de más de 15 años como dj, siempre ha sido un favorito del público, confirmado por su primera residencia en el legendario Aahz en Orlando, o con sus residencias en The Cross en Londres y Twilo en NYC. Desde su tour europeo en 1997, Chris no ha parado de viajar por todo el mundo después de cada single, remix o compilación que ha sacado al mercado. Lo puedes encontrar en Tokyo, Buenos Aires y muchas otras ciudades en cualquier fin de semana.
