As dj and promoter of run, Chris Box has played alongside internationally renowned artists such as Daniel Bell, Patrice Scott, Keith Worthy, Zip, Sven Weisemann, Jay Haze, Philip Quenum, Pheek, Andy Vaz, Geoff White, Portable and a host of others as well as introduced other acts from across the world (Barem, Ben Parris, Fusiphorm, Cabanne, Jeff Samuel, Johan Skugge and Someone Else) to London.
Although he started off chopping & cutting up techno & electro at warehouse & outdoor parties across London & Europe in the 90s with Sonic Sound System, playing at teknivals and festivals alongside the likes of Desert Storm, Mutoid Waste etc., recent years have seen the bpms drop & the music get deeper and more stripped down.
Having always been into the more experimental and sparse elements of electronic music (from the early jackin Chicago trax to the tweaked acid of Plastikman and DBX via early Warp bleeps) it has been a natural progression of style and aesthetic from the early years to today.
Aside from run, he’s pushed his mutant strains of techno & house at various nights & events such as Netaudio London, Transition, Tactile, Festa Junina & Multi Vitamins etc. in bars & clubs across London such as Nomad, Horse and Groom, Cafe 1001 / 1002, Gramaphone, Shunt Vaults, Fluid Bar, Bar 54, The Rhythm Factory, Kaos etc. as well as at Stealth in Nottingham, Delete in Bournemouth and Oblique in Cardiff.
In addition to playing locally Chris’ record bag has taken him to Wales to the Freerotation Festival, where he is now a resident DJ, and further afield to Berlin where he has played at the Club Transmediale Festival and Netaudio Berlin, as well as various events at RAW Tempel, breiPott and Wagenplanet Lohmuhle. He has also visited Brazil a few times where he has played at the Motronic parties at Amp Galaxy in Sao Paulo.
Plans for the future include focusing on the runsounds parties in order to provide a regular platform for local and international talent. Talks of the runsounds netlabel are also taking place…Until then…
