Chris Box


As DJ and promoter of run, Chris Box has played alongside internationally renowned artists such as Zip, Jay Haze, Philip Quenum, Pheek, Andy Vaz, Geoff White and a host of others as well as introduced other acts from across the world (Barem, Ben Parris, Fusiphorm, Cabanne, Jeff Samuel, Johan Skugge and Someone Else) to London.

Although he started off chopping & cutting up techno & electro at warehouse & outdoor parties across London & Europe in the 90s with Sonic Sound System playing at teknivals and festivals alongside the likes of Desert Storm, Mutoid Waste etc., recent years have seen the bpms drop & the music get deeper and more stripped down.

Having always been into the more experimental and sparse elements of electronic music (from the early jackin Chicago trax to the tweaked acid of Plastikman and DBX via early Warp bleeps) it has been a natural progression of style and aesthetic from the early years to today.
Aside from run, he’s pushed his mutant strains of techno & house at various nights & events such as Multi Vitamins, Digital Beanbag & minimal london etc. in bars & clubs across London such as 93 Feet East, Strongrooms, Café 1001 / 1002, Gramaphone, Pool Bar, Fluid Bar, Bar 54, The Rhythm Factory, Kaos etc. as well as at Stealth in Nottingham.

In addition to playing locally his record bag has also taken him further afield to Berlin where he played the Pulsar Records Netlag 5 party. Chris has also visited Brazil a few times where he has played at the Motronic parties for the last 2 years alongside musical partners in crime Russell Skellon & Daniel Cozta, as well as special guest Portable.

Plans for the future include focusing on the run parties in order to provide a monthly platform for local and international talent. Talks of the runsounds netlabel are also taking place… Watch this space!
