After planning or attending countless parties over the past 20 years in cities across Canada and around the globe, Chris found himself back in his city of birth...The Big Smoke aka TORONTO.
Fast fwd the last 10 years , while paying his dues and establishing himself in Toronto's underground dance music and club scene, Chris was able to work with and has been fortunate to learn from some of Canada's top underground Dj's / Producers and friends.
Chris is quick to give credit to the likes of Nitin, Kenny Glasgow + Johnny White aka Art Department, James Teej, Craig Pettigrew, Manzone and Strong, My Favorite Robot, Capital J, DJ King Swift aka MidiMafia, Organized Rhyme, Titan Sound, Dj Shadow, Dj Dlux + Mike Moves, Ducats and Dave C (Ottawa)...at some point they have all helped influence or had a part in helping him find his path.
It was from watching those in his close circle over time and time again, constantly achieve some sort of international success or worldwide fame that kept Chris motivated and focused on his passion for music and desire of wanting to bring people together.
In the past decade he has been very fortunate to have worked for some of Toronto's most notable promotions and event planning companies , nightclubs and labels.
Starting out with Gem Events, Bounce Marketing, INK, No.19 Music, The Gerbz Presents, Platform, Boogie Inc., Jazz J Spinder, Jennstarr + Eddy K and Footwork.
Later forming friendships and collaborations with Toronto's next generation of promoters and producers Room 303, Sean Roman, Nightvision, House Addict, Soundmind, Way of Acting, Summerdaze, Deep North, Locol Productions and Red Door Loft have collaborated with Bosno on a consistent basis over the years.
In the past decade Chris has worked on all kinds of various projects, events, festivals, parties, after parties, label releases, boat cruises and played and integral roll in the launch of new nightclubs like CIRCA , SONIC afterhours and FACES nightclub but it didn't seem to satisfy a void seemingly felt.
It wasn't until making a name for himself and earning his rep on the late night , after hours scene where Chris seemed to find his comfort level musically. It was within the dark corners and shadows of the city's underground and late night hours his sound was seemingly found.
In 2008 the stage was finally set for Chris aka Bosno to come into his own, not only as a party host and promoter (BosnoInfo), but showcasing his musical ability as an artist / dj as well.
To date Chris can be found playing his weekly residencies + planning events in Toronto or abroad. However, his promotional network and affiliations expands around the globe.
Since 2010 Chris has seen his musical talents take him to play cities like London (UK). Recently re - locating and spending summer or winters playing clubs and in the Dominican capital of Santo Domingo or the beaches of Bavaro, Cabarete and Jaun Dolio.
Travelling down to South America to play the famed, Club Vertigo in Costa Rica, with stops in Tulum, Mexico. Back to North America in Chicago, Detroit, Buffalo (NY) and all across Canada in Vancouver, Whistler, Montreal, Ottawa, London and anywhere and everywhere in his hometown of Toronto.
The GOAL is always the same:
Enhance Toronto's nightlife and carry on the tradition of well respected, high quality events. Always trying to showcase some of the best local and international, underground talent the world has to offer!
