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 and Smartbar (where he held a residency from 2015-2018).
Chrissy currently runs a house music label called The Nite Owl Diner, and its new sister label, Cool Ranch, which releases limited, hand-stamped runs of jacking, disco-inspired Chicago house.
“Chrissy is one of the best DJs to ever walk the earth and I am just going to keep saying it until everyone agrees with me.”
— The Black Madonna
“The living embodiment of a ‘DJ’s DJ’”
“An authority on genres as disparate as footwork, disco and ghetto house.”
— Red Bull Music Academy
“A virtual walking encyclopedia of the last 30 years of dance music”
Roberto has been collecting records and DJing for more than 20 years. A staple of Toronto’s underground house scene in the late nineties and early 00’s, this seasoned producer and DJ has found a renaissance of late thanks to a clutch of well-received releases on NYC’s Good Timin’ Records, Berlin’s edit mainstay Red Motorbike, the Church affiliated No Bad Days out of London, and most recently on Tom Noble’s tastemaking New York label Superior Elevation.
As a DJ, his sound glides between eras and styles, embracing a free-form selection of soulful, heart-on-sleeve party music.
He also records and performs as Conga Radio alongside Good Timin’ label boss Jex Opolis.
