A DJ, producer and label boss firmly in the ascendency, Chris Stussy emerged onto the scene double quick time with a string of head turning house tracks, but what is important is that he has continued to back up that early promise years later.
A long-standing love of early house music, but also raw production aesthetics and an understanding of jazz, disco and Chicago styles feed into his own unique take on the genre. As such, his sublime late-night cuts via the likes of Djebali, Moscow, Eastenderz, LOCUS, and PIV, where he is the in-house A&R. He is also well-known for his remixes including his latest one for Chandler.
And yet, after playing some of the biggest clubs and festivals like Awakenings, Watergate, Fuse and elrow + countless top releases via labels as Djebali, Moscow, Eastenderz, LOCUS and PIV, Stussy still continues to serve up heat at an alarming rate. Add to the mix the highly-anticipated launch of his own label ‘Up The Stuss’ – a vinyl-driven outlet for both Stussy and close friends and colleagues to release forward thinking, timeless club-driven productions from across the electronic sphere – and you begin to gain an understanding of just how well-rounded he is not only as an artist, but also as an A&R and a label owner.
