Chris Whamond Chris Whamond Berlin Born and raised in Chicago with blues and house music in my blood. I'm a DJ as well as guitarist. Grew up listening to WBMX and WGCI "hotmixes" on the radio - before house music was even known outside Chicago. Learned to DJ in 1985 from one of the top DJ's in Chicago. Moved to L.A. in 1987 where I DJ'd at the height of the underground rave scene in Los Angeles. Put the wheels of steel away to go to USC and focus on my degree. I DJ now just for fun (I'm a full-time software developer) and play guitar.
