Chrissy is a genre-bending DJ/producer with releases on Super Rhythm Trax, Chiwax, Classic, Freerange, Razor N Tape, Nervous, and Hypercolour. He specializes in Chicago house, disco, and rave-influenced sounds, but his 20-year career has ranged from jungle to footwork to freestyle, with gigs at clubs like Panorama Bar, Smartbar (where he held a residency from 2015-2018), and his current residency at San Francisco’s oldest and most storied queer venue, The Stud.

Chrissy is also a well-regarded voice on dance music history—he ran the popular “My Year of Mixtapes” and “My Year of Edits” blogs, posting original genre-focused DJ mixes and disco edits every week for a year. He wrote the liner notes for Hardcore Traxx: Dance Mania Records 1986-1997, and has written about dance music history for RBMA, XLR8R, and Electronic Beats. He also runs two house music record labels: The Nite Owl Diner and Cool Ranch.
