Chester based music producer Chris Beale is hoping for big things in 2016 after winning support from BBC Introducing.
Chris’s debut record was Steklo, released in 2013. Soon after, he signed the track to Move Records on Itunes which in turn saw his name showcased at ADE, the world’s biggest music festival.
His breakthrough track came with Mashup Chester with C Gritz (Boy Better Know) which gained widespread support from both clubs and radio and helped to further popularise bass music in his home city.
In 2014, Chris released the BBC Introducing supported track Thinking Out Loud featuring vocals from UK artist Fran Young.
The success with the BBC was followed by the solo track Going My Own Way, released on the same label, which reached and stayed at number 15 on Juno’s Chart for three months over the summer of 2015.
World record holder
Late 2014 saw his debut album For The Love signed to Move which helped to cement his position as a mainstay UK techno producer and gained Chris the recognition as a product of Britain’s electronic dance movement.
As a DJ, Chris has earned a Guinness World Record, with the number one spot for the DJ relay at London super club Ministry Of Sound where he has also been featured as a ‘local hero’.
Chris also owns Mashup Events, one of Chester’s main club nights which has brought artists such as Shy FX, Ms Dynamite, Danny Dyer, Goldie, Hype, Wilkinson, B.Traits, Jaguar Skills, Maxxi Soundsystem, Yousef and many more to Chester.
And he has also headlined the Marina Stage at major UK festival Wakestock.
