My name is Chris, I play keys in a folk band called Eloise Rees and the Giants, and I make EDM music in my free time.
Ablton Live 9 Suite, FL Studio 10, Presonus Studio One.
PC, Novation Launchkey Mini, Korg NanoKontrol, Roland Prelude Keyboard.
I highly recommend C2C, I have been listening to their album 'Tetra' a lot recently, and I regard it as the best album of 2012.
Also, if you haven't heard any of Overwerk's music, do check out Daybreak.
C2C - Tetra
Hey Ocean! - IS
Sia - Some People Have Real Problems
Overwerk - After Hours
deadmau5 - 4x4=12
I love a myriad of different types of music, but as a keyboard player I have always regarded Roger Hodgson from Supertramp as a big influence, as well as Jazz Pianists such as Oscar Peterson and Dave Brubeck.
I am also a huge fan of trance and house, particularly the progressive and ambient stuff so I love artists such as Overwerk, Daft Punk and Deadmau5.
My music varies a lot, I like to experiment with different styles. That being said I am currently working on a few tracks that are highly influenced/inspired by Daft Punk's Tron Legacy soundtrack.
At the moment I am making ends meet by working in a bar.
