Chris Salt – Biography

After signing a two album record contract with Silver Planet shortly after finishing university, the label released several of Chris’ singles (Dub Sonar, Distorted Reality, Atmospheric Graffiti), remixes (Flash Brothers – Ways, Main Element – Delta Of Venus) and a 2 CD mix compilation (Fear 3). These received strong support from respected DJs and the dance press (DJ Mag, IDJ Mag, DMC Update), with Atmospheric Graffiti being named track of the year in 2004 by Nick Warren.

DJ support for Chris’ tracks and remixes came from Sasha, Nick Warren, John Digweed, Hybrid, Slacker, Jody Wisternoff, Anthony Pappa and several others, and Kiss FM played his tracks and remixes. Chris signed to an artist management agency to play international tour dates following the publicity in the dance press and DJ playlists, and his first international gig was on his 23rd birthday in Tokyo.

Following the success of the Fear 3 mix compilation, Chris was asked to undertake a second mix CD for Kickin’ Music named Future House, and further remixes were undertaken for major and independent labels (Hooj Choons – Katcha – Touched By God, EMI / Couture – Calanit – Sculptured, LDU – Jonny 20 ft Onirika – Everyday).

Tour dates continued in Japan, China, Turkey, Greece, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, Poland, the Netherlands and within the UK (at The Cross and Turnmills in London and The Bomb in Nottingham). Chris held a 3 year residency at a London club night called Electronic Sessions and he had two Internet radio shows for a few years (on Proton radio and ETN.FM).

Chris’ artist album, No Surrender, was released in 2008 (via Amazon, iTunes and Beatport) and frequent international tour dates continued for further years.  Chris is now gearing up his studio for some new releases in 2018.
