Ανήκει στο «νέο κύμα» ελλήνων παραγωγών δημιουργώντας ένα κράμα electronic – trip hop ήχου. Συνθέτει με την χρήση δειγμάτων (samples) κατασκευάζοντας μια διαδραστική ηχητική εμπειρία, η οποία δημιουργεί ενα ταξίδι γεμάτο συναισθήματα.

Λούπες, γκρουβαριστές μπασσογραμμές και δυνατά drums, δένουν μεταξύ τους δημιουργώντας μια μυστηριώδη διάθεση. Τα "σκονισμένα" samples παρμένα αποκλειστικά απο δίσκους βινυλίου καθώς και τα έντονα jazzy στοιχεία τα οποία χρησιμοποιούνται, αδιαμφισβήτητα, επιφέρουν μια μοναδική νότα νοσταλγίας.

Όλη η σύνθεση γίνεται με αναλογικό εξοπλισμό, ώστε να προκύψει αυτό το θερμό ηχοτρόπιο.
Εκτός από την Ελλάδα έχει παίξει επίσης σε αρκετά venues του εξωτερικού παρουσιάζοντας τη μουσική του.

Έχει μοιραστεί την σκηνή με: Wax Tailor, DJ Krush, Gramatik, Guts, Chinese Man, Nostalgia 77, Fulgeance, Debruit, La Fine Equipe, μεταξύ άλλων.

Chris Ex
Germany

To get an idea of who Chris eX is, you have to take a look on his music past as a Dj and Music Lover.

Playing records since 1994, he came up as a Soul , Funk & Hip Hop maestro in the golden era of Thessaloniki's (second larger Greek City) Underground Scene, where he was one of the few who digged and spined Mostly Black music..

Spending his time all these years between radio stations, Dj Booths, and collecting records, he developed his ears and made his set and skills more mature and groovy as ever..

Moving from Thessaloniki to Berlin in 2012, really opened up his mind and made him productive in a way of building up mixes which really got the crowd around the world.

You can take a listen to his "Hustler" , "My Afro" or Black Radio Berlin mixes to check on your own that this guy is a true music guide of raw and funky vibes!
