A few short years after breaking through, on the back of a series
of huge house tracks, Dutchman Chris Stussy is now a growing
part of the global underground scene. Always leading the way
and heading into new musical territory, he has built on early
successes with a steady stream of essential new releases with
each one bringing something fresh to the dance floor via
influential labels like Djebali and Phil Weeks’s Robsoul.
Inspired by the likes of Kerri Chandler, raw Chicago grooves and
well-schooled in the classics, Stussy uses this knowledge to
head into the future and perfect his own take on the genre, while
drawing on disco and the jazz of his youth to lend his music its
extra special and standout sense of character.
All of this understanding also colours his work in the DJ booth of
key clubs and festivals around the world. From Awakenings to
the mainstage of Welcome to the Future, via Watergate in Berlin,
Rex Club in Paris and Mysteryland with Carl Cox and Jamie
Jones, plus various other gigs round the UK, Ibiza and Hungary.
He can seamlessly switch up his sound to suit the moment and
is as comfortable on the scene’s huge mainstages as he is in
intimate and personal clubs.
As a remixer, Stussy has reworked the likes of Mark Farina and
Michel De Hey, and after recent EPs like the ‘Boogie Trippin EP’
and ‘Nightdriver EP’ on Robsoul, and djebali Presents Chris
Stussy, he is about to unleash a wealth of exciting new material.
It includes a vinyl only EP on his regular home label PIV limited,
as well as a new collaborative effort with the Djebali label boss
and two new EPs for DJ Steaw’s Rutilance Recordings and
House Puff. As such, Stussy is continually finding fascinating
new corners to explore within the House scene, and continues to
showcase this in the studio as well as in the most important DJ
booths around the world.
