Chris Sick has been there since the beginning of the electronic music revolution. Considered one of the "Godfathers" of the Salt Lake City scene, he has been active in DJing, producing and promotion for more than 20 years. His beginning was when house music still was known by names like "New Beat", "Acid House", "Hip House", "Techno", and "Rave". He's played along side of most major US djs and a grand host of international talent in 39 States and 3 Countries. He has releases on Sick Sounds and Mechanized Records, and more releases in the pipe works for the coming months. He plays predominantly breakbeat driven music - progressive breaks, glitch, nuskool, dubstep and old school funk, although he his a long and respected history playing House since the earliest days of the EDM movement. He has been DJing professionally since 1986, so he has roughly 28 years behind the decks. His musical vision has been felt on dancefloors of every size and dimension, from headlining at 10,000 person music festivals, to playing to intimate crowds in exclusive club settings and occasional house parties & after parties. His earliest days in the House music movement had him as resident in some of the most influential clubs of the time, such as Playscool, where his weekly 6 hour sets gained a devout following. In the early 90s he became famed for his moving, beautiful and powerful sunrise sets at parties under the stars in seemingly endless deserts, on lakeside beaches, and up in wooded mountain clearings. In his production work he has spanned the breakbeat genres, especially glitchy breaks and some dubstep, although he is no stranger to creating hard-hitting house made for the dancefloor. In 2015, Chris is set to headline several old school "reunion" events that highlights the timeless music that built the foundation of what the EDM evolved into. He is also currently booked to add his sound to coming events in Florida and on the West Coast!

@johnny-reaper: I tried to mimic but "frsshen" the original drumming...glitched up a but but I thought it worked. Doing the beat is one of my favorite processes!!
@aldiganie: Indeed...I had to figure out a way to keep the "60s psychedelia" vibe psychedelic and get the breakdown (time of the season for loving") to comfortably fit in with pizzaz!! :)
@arc-rev-one: I hope "interesting" meant it KEPT yer interest!!??!!
@subkonsius: Thank you so much Kelly!! High, articulate praise is always great to receive indeed!! I am actually quite fond of it too...and you're right about layers and layers of subtitlities like the echoing voice snippets and the deep, trippy atmospherics...plus if you actually concentrate on the breakbeat itself, I am rather proud of writing that structed and complex beat - a good breakbeat is MUCH harder to make than a good House beat (jus sayin). THX THOUGH, BIG TIME ;)
@to3y-hilden: Oh, I know, my friend!! I expected you to rockit just likke you did as soon as that first famous "scratch sound" comes in at the beginning of "Trip Harder"!! And sure enough, your head popped right up, lol :)
@corrupt-1: Glad u like, buddy :) I thought you had fallen off your island and been eaten by sharks, lol. ;)

@fr-d-ric-dionne: Thanks mucho, I dig the funk ;) "My cadillac, and my pinky ring..."
