Chris Stanford is a long serving dj on London’s underground scene, having held many a residency since his first appearance’s in the clubs back in 2005. Since then he’s played pretty much anywhere worth mentioning in the city, as well as some other venues across the UK & Europe. This is down to his cool tempered attitude, yet confident approach with his natural ability to tease all crowds big or small. A true character behind the decks, the cities techno heads attend his residency for the London techno afterhours Jaded. He has been one of the main residents for around 4 years now, in this time he’s played alongside some of the finest techno acts around from Surgeon to Chris Liebing, from Speedy J to Function & Regis and too many more to mention. His epic closing sets have not gone un-noticed, for their power and energy and he welcome’s the extended sets with open arms.
When it comes to label management and production, along with Gareth Wild, Chris started the EarToGround project back in 2010 and not long after helped shape the party brand into the label ready for it’s first release, where alongside studio partner Dax J he created the deep sensations of “Programm” the first original 12” which saw remixes from fellow London based techno heads “Shifted” and “Truss”. Following that single they returned on ETG003 with the hard hitting “Kommand” with a remix from Manchester’s, “AnD”, ETG005 with their huge memorable synthline in Synchronize and ETG007 with “Moonraker” with remix treatment from Ostgut Tons, Ryan Elliott . As well ETG, Chris has releases and remixes out on labels like LDNwht (as one half of Mirrorpress), Berlin label Falkplatz, Tact and his very own imprint Quant.
Chris started Quant about a year ago but the label has already seen lots of support from the big players. There’s been original music and remixes from artists like Hector Oaks, Joton, Nikola Gala, Mutecell, Urbano, Hans Bouffmyhre, The Plant Worker, I/Y and more. Keeping the quality control going strong, this year will see Quant pushing through a very cool bunch of emerging techno artists. Also year will see Chris step up a gear with his own music, releasing on Quant, there’s also plans for a solo EP on EarToGround amongst other things, meanwhile he will continue to play a big part in the Jaded camp, providing London & the UK with the techno afterhours that is sought after and much deserved…
