Chris Rossi A.K.A Aquilaganja/Drop the Junk hails from a small town on the outskirts of Glasgow, Scotland called Milngavie. At a young age Chris got into the hardcore scene which was the dominant music style in Glasgow and Scotland at the time, respecting artists such as Marc Smith, Scott Brown & Lenny Dee to name a few.
Electronic dance music has always been a passion of Chris’s no matter what the genre though the first styles he chose to mix on vinyl were Hard House and Hardstyle.
After a few years mixing on vinyl Chris decided the next best thing to look into was Dance Music Production courses at the School of Sound Recordings in Manchester, England which is owned and run but Ian Ho, who was the main producer/audio engineer for classic dance group N-Trance. Chris chose to do an advanced Cubase course which saw him score top marks in his class by the end of the course.
As soon as Chris finished his production course he got in contact with the legendary Dj/Producer Alex Calver (Calvertron) who Chris highly respected for his unique style and his ability to write multiple genres at a professional level. This gave Chris the perfect opportunity over a 2-3 year period to learn tricks of the trade production wise from his ideal which was to boost Chris’s own ability in the studio.
Mid 2008 saw Chris launch his Aquilaganja alias writing Electro/House and a little bit of Minimal/Techno. By writing these genres Chris managed to get his tracks signed to labels such as:
Ho-Ju Records (Aus) - Electro House
Destination? Label (Aus) - Electro House & Minimal
Generation Records (Sony Sub Label Aus) - Electro House
Monkey Beats (UK) - House, Tech-House & Electro
Prompt Digital (USA) - Electro and House
Plasmapool Records (Ger) - Electro, Minimal & Techno
852 Recordings (UK) - Electro House
Burn The Fire (USA) - Electro House
Midimal Records (UK) - Minimal & Techno
Digital Dope Records (UK) - Electro House & Tech-House
Get High Music Records (Ukr) - Funky House and Tech-House
Kynatix Records (Hol) - Tech-House and Techno
Digital Freak Records (SA) - House, Tech-House and Electro
After his first year producing Electro House Chris saw a huge rise in demand for his production skills that he started to work for a huge number of artists and labels doing full-time engineering. This put him in the studio to work, write and network for artists such as:
Alex Calver (Calvertron)
And many more from cross genres.
Through 2011 and into 2012 Chris is set to be full-time in the recording studio working on a wide range of genres and working with a huge list of artist’s both new and old.
