Chris starting DJ'ing from his early 20's in Sydney, it wasn't until moving to London in 2004 that in a short space of time he made his mark, earning residencies throughout London. His sets draw on many styles from Deep Chicago to Detroit to more modern European influences. Musically his style is focused around Deep House and Techno with a warm, hypnotic feel.
The quality of Chris' sets have seen him playing alongside DJ's like Groove Armada, Kooshen, Derrick Carter and Norman Jay MBE to present day heroes like Mr C , Ralph Lawson , Tim Sheridan & Clive Henry.
Chris' Techno sets have a tougher edge while his lighter & more minimal side has seen him rock dance floors across London. The techno music scene left a deep impression on Chris and his record collection , influenced by producing friends in London & Sydney, which lead him to start his own label with close friends.
ON ALL FOURS was launched in November 2008 - the brain child of 4 DJ / Producers from London -Adrain Musto, Ross Manthorpe, Kevin Steed & Chris. As the name suggests , the four guys launched their label in looking to cover the growing Deep / Techno / Minimal scene that is sweeping the UK the world. All DJ's in there own right , their experience behind the decks ranges from Australia , Italy , Ibiza , Majorca & all throughout the UK. With a number of tracks under their belt they will be looking to further the label with a number of big names remixes to be launched in the New Year.
Michal Ruzicka, aka DJ Schwa, is the man behind BEEF records and Shades Of Gray. Michal became engaged in music thanks to his father, who is also a musician himself as well as an owner of a famous recording studio in Prague (ww.orm.cz). At the age of 14, dance music caught his attention mainly through Radio 1. Around this time he tried to mix his first tracks. In 2000 he started performing publicly. In 2002, Michal started his weekly resident night in Prague at Cross Club and since 2003 he has been working as a sound engineer at ORM studio in Prague. In 2004 Michal, along with DJ Slater, started working on the first Czech progressive label and by the end of the year “Tribal Vision Records” was born.
Tribal Vision has since then been slowly establishing itself as one of the leading labels on the progressive scene.
At the end of 2005, Schwa rapidly changed his style and the idea of an innovative techno/house label became reality and thus established the foundation for “BEEF Records.”
Schwa’s sets are not strictly one style oriented; he combines electro sounds that progressively flow from deeper tech house to minimal & techno rhythms. Schwa’s unique mixing and track selection has resulted in a particularly massive following throughout Japan, Germany, Czech Republic, Hungary, France, Austria, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Slovakia and Australia. Schwa has performed at huge international festivals such as “Open Air Field” (Czech Republic), “Parihaka” (New Zealand), “No Mans Land Festival” (Hungary), “Rainbow Serpent”, “Earthcore Carnival” (Australia) and as a part of Japan tour Michal had a chance to perform at the biggest club in Japan – Ageha.
