At this weeks CLICK party we welcome along very special guest, Chris Carrier, for the late night session…
There are two kinds of DJs: those whose goal is to make a name for themselves and those whose goal is to make music - and let the rest follow. Parisian Chris Carrier is among the latter. For more than a dozen years he's been an underground icon, churning out more than one hundred records and remixes for a host of labels. Too busy working to chase a spot in the limelight, Carrier is nevertheless rightly revered as one of the most gifted, prolific producers on the dance scene.
Refusing to restrict his output to one genre or one school of thought, Carrier has dabbled freely in everything from house to hip hop, drum 'n'bass to minimal, techno to electro. Most DJ shave one label - if at all - but Chris is so restlessly creative he's founded a whole fistful of labels over the course of his career, including the renowned Adult Only imprint, Chronobrain, Combustible, Taka, X86 and Direct Art.
However, youthful notions of being a baker ("I like cakes," he says) lost out to music when he discovered the early 90s techno rave scene and began to DJ. Driven to be the master of his musical destiny, Chris quickly learned to produce and created pioneering techno outlet Chronobrain with Guillaume La Tortue. For seven-odd years Chris devoted himself the label, and its offshoots including house-oriented Taka and drum 'n' bass imprint X86.However, his love for rave culture led him back towards more purely creative work.
From 2003 onwards Chris has founded new labels Adult Only and Catwash, as well as bringing his vision to Get Physical, Crack & Speed, Brique Rouge, Robsoul, Kill Brique, Freak n' Chic and most recently, a remix of Matthew Dear's Dog Days on the Spectral imprint. This has put the underground star firmly in the forefront of the new French electronic movement, bringing his diverse style to the sexy, deep, techy house vibes that dominate the scene.
Chris will be joined by Minimal Carnival resident, Louis Guilhelm, as well as the CLICK residents.
Doors open at 10pm and the party goes through till 6am. Its free entry before the midnight hour, and drinks promos (including 2 beers for £4) run all night long.
We hope you can join us!
