“My creative process is both complex and simple. The complexities arise when I try to understand it. It’s like trying to describe the sensation of feelings; one is better suited just experiencing it for oneself. But it becomes simple when I let go and surrender to it.”

Born as the son of a German mother and a Japanese Father in Lima the capital city along the pacific coast of Peru, Chris Hirose learned to deal with antagonisms. It’s due to this dialectic that he has mastered the art of combing different cultural influences and musical concepts into a powerful and well-rounded formula. This is not only reflected in his multilayered DJ sets but also in his productions. He likes to deconstruct rhythms, loops and tunes and fuse them into a new entity. A metronomic kick drum serves as a canvas on which various sonic textures are applied to. Mixed with sublime dexterity, he moves from deft melodies and atmospheric shifts into coarse yet lush sonics. All in all his output comprises of pleasurable depths no matter if it’s geared towards the dance-floors or simply to the listener’s ears.
