Chris Hale was born and raised in L.A. California, and is currently based in Tokyo, Japan where he is an active Dj and producer. Chris was a top artist at MP3.COM, garnering hundreds, even thousands of plays and downloads a day. His tracks regularly topped the house, tribal house, progressive house, and Detroit charts for weeks and months at a time. His music gets regular play by Dj's around the world in clubs and on underground radio. He is also a veteran re-mixer, most recently mixing tracks for Bitstream Dream (Om, Bedrock). Chris Dj's at clubs throughout Tokyo, and is the resident Dj at the monthly 'Worship' parties at club Vibulous. Chris' 'sound' is actually difficult to describe, but some have called it 'dark soul' music- that is, dark atmospheres fused with soulful rhythm. Personally, Chris simply makes the type of music he likes to dance to in dark, smoke and sweat filled subterranean clubs. Since moving to Tokyo 6 years ago, and delving deep into the scene there, his sound has definitely expanded and grown, both as a producer and DJ. Tokyo has an amazingly vibrant underground scene that easily rivals any in the world. People go to clubs to lose themselves in the sound and to connect with people in ways that are socially forbidden in the light of day. It is in the sanctuary of darkness and deafening sound where people are free. When producing 'Dancers in the Womb,' Chris tried to re-create this energy he felt on the floor (while at a Tokyo club, not coincidentally called, 'Womb'). It is this incredible scene that has most influenced his 'sound'.
