Chris Carrier is one of those rare kinds of artists that have an omnipresent quality and yet do not seek to make their name bigger than the music itself. You may not even know it but there is a 99% chance you have experienced some dancefloor-based elation at the hands of the Parisian maestro. With well over 100 production credits under his belt, he’s been an underground icon for the past decade. Nevertheless, he seems to prefer the dim light, which has defined him as an underground icon for the past decade. Whatever the style, Carrier’s free musical spirit always keeps the dance floor crowded.
Chris has dabbled freely in everything from house to hip-hop, drum n bass to minimal to techno and electro, funk and disco, founding a whole fistful of highly regarded labels in the industry. Over the course of his career he has established the renowned Adult Only imprint, Chronobrain, Combustible, Taka, X86 and Direct Art and worked under a variety of aliases.
His impact on the industry ever growing, Carrier tirelessly created and remixed tracks for a diverse selection of labels over the years. He has lent his touch to numerous remix projects including Ralph Falcon’s ‘Every Now And Then’ on Nervous Records, the original productions continued to flourish. Joining forces with Jef K and Chicago legend Chez Damier to form The Gathering, together they were responsible for a track that epitomized the summer. ‘In My System’ garnered huge support from all major house DJs, and invaded dancefloors worldwide.
Just about to drop is ‘True Step Locomotion’, his latest LP and the debut album release from super cool Utrecht based label, Slapfunk. Exploring a ruff universe between Deep House and Jack Acid, the concept revolves around Chris’ observations of our ever-shifting planet as an artist on the road.
Those in the know may be aware of a new live setup Chris recently premiered in Paris and Barcelona under a mysterious new alias. The sound ventures into the realm of minimal, while reviving the old skool analogue gears. Plenty of productions and live performances to come, so get researching.
