Described as ‘ambitious, tireless and ferociously dedicated’, rising star Chris Lattner certainly appears to be a pioneering individual with an undeniable talent for infectious house grooves.
Born in Hannover in 1972, Chris grew up surrounded by the sounds of his parent’s disco music. They further encouraged his ambitions on his sixteenth birthday with a set of Technics 1210’s, unsurprisingly; it wasn’t too long before he started to spin records out and about. In 1990 he managed to organise one the first ever techno parties in Hannover, which went on to feature the likes of Carl Cox, West Bam, and Ricardo Villalobos.
Ten years later in the year 2000, Chris decided to take a break and went to reside in Leipzig for a few years before moving to Berlin and rejoining the music scene in 2004 to host ‘The sound of Berlin’, on one of the first internet radio stations courtesy of Australia’s Pulse Radio.
It was around this time that Chris also started to produce his own music, 2008 saw his debut release ‘Hypnotoad’ on WBA-Records. A year later, his finest moment to date surfaced when Einmaleins label owner Eik signed his first EP “Definition” in Feb 2009 with “Limbo Taxi” following a month on.
A succession of successful remixes and features followed; “Two In One” in the company of Dan Drastic on Moon Harbours Inhouse Vol. 3, a remix of Pawas ‘s “Mac Dub” on UK label Fear of Flying, not forgetting “African Children” on Loco Dice’s ‘The Lab’ complation in April 09.
November see’s forthcoming material on Luna Records as well as the landmark 50th release on Einmalens, with remixes to look forward to from Bearweasel, Justin Drake and Pezner- 2010 looks set to be a very busy year for Chris Lattner.
