LABELS: Critical Music Dispatch Recordings Eatbrain Subtitles DSCI4 Records
As one of the commanding producers and DJs in the Hungarian scene, Chris.SU among others has put his country on the map of drum and bass. His first international break through was the track “Astro-Sine” with the well-known techno-sample “My house is your house”, in 2002 on Trace’s label DSCI4. Since then, his tracks enjoy the support of drum and bass’ finest, from Klute to Ed Rush, Concord Dawn, Pendulum, Ill.Skillz, BSE, Bailey, Flight, D-Bridge, Matrix, Teebee, Dieselboy and Andy C. Raised in a small city one hour drive from the capital of Hungary, Budapest and trained from the age of 7 as a classical cellist, Chris soon found himself edging away from the traditional music and getting into electronic music. As soon as he got his first PC in 1996, he immediately started making music in various genres such as hardcore techno and house.
By the end of 1997 one of Chris’ schoolmates, who is today an editor of the Hungarian drum’n’bass website ImpulseCreator gave him a compilation CD to listen to it, which was one his first dnb experiences. After a few months listening to the “new” style, he started visiting parties, too. Chris remembers the Bad Company gig in 1999 as one of his first big inspirations to start making dnb himself. By that time ImpulseCreator has launched a new page called ‘Music for your ears’, where inexperienced producers could upload their new tunes.
