Chris von B. was born in Essen Werden in Germany in 1994 and grew up in a small city in the area surrounding the Ruhr – Velbert.
His musical interests were very versatile in his youth; his taste was affected by many different genres.
Because of his friends, he early recognized his favor for Hip-Hop as well as for electronic music. Soon he knew where his journey should go to and in the age of 14 he started his career. His first walk to a record shop? – Done!
He only bought what he liked to hear and what sounded good to him, simply because he did not know better. And by and by his love to techno music grew stronger and stronger.
Obsessed with the electronic sound, Chris von B. got to know the scene better and from that time on he knew he never wanted to leave again.
With 19 he absolutely wanted to go back to his roots, to Berlin, not only the capital city from Germany, but also the capital city from techno.
There his taste developed and stabilized more and more.
Affected by the dart sound of the Berlin clubs, like Berghain or Tresor, he found his own style very fast and soon he recorded and published his first own sets.
He immediately knew, he wanted more and with a strong belief in himself, he had his first gig 2015 at his place of birth – in Essen.
The following bookings for Essen and as well for Berlin were confirmed as fast as possible and then he had his second gig at the newcomer event “Resole” in the Frohnatur in Essen.
In April followed his benefit on the newcomer contest from Subkultur Bochum, where Chris von B. became the opportunity to show what he got on the festival “Licht ist Musik ist Abenteuer”.
After numerous successful gigs in Berlin and the area all around the Ruhr, he won the newcomer contest from “Sound of Butan” in the Butan club in Wuppertal, where he got the chance to close the main floor next to Marcel Fengler.
By having gigs in clubs as the “Brunnen 70”, the “MAGDAlena” and some others of the Berlin scene, he is on a very good way to establish himself with his dark, coltish sound.
