Specialist Electronic / Dance / Pop - Writer / Producer / Mix Engineer. PMA Mark Award Winner for Best Dance/Electronic Track, US Billboard #1 Dance Airplay Single, BBC Radio 1 Record Of The Week, 10 UK Club Chart & US Billboard Club & Airplay Chart Top 10s, 8 x US & UK Production Music Award Nominations, MTV Playlisted

I'm a specialist electronic music Writer, Producer & Mix Engineer based in the creative hub of Bristol, UK. I've recently won an award at the Production Music Awards in the US for Best Dance/Electronica track of the year. I've also had 7 additional award nominations in the sync music field. I've had a US Billboard No.1 Dance Airplay single under the artist name Bellatrax and I've had releases with: EMI / Sony/ATV, Universal Music, Island Records, Parlophone, Ultra USA, Kontor Records Germany, Warner Chappell, BMG, Armada Holland, 3Beat, Positiva, Nervous USA, Time Records Italy, Hed Kandi, Ministry Of Sound, Circus Records + many more!

When it comes to producing and mixing records I consider myself to be a perfectionist and I take my time to get the track sounding the best it can. When working on other people's records I pay the same attention to detail and treat them as though they were my own. My goal is to make my clients happy and I believe in creating good long term relationships.

  1. Review by Josh C.

    We used Chris to Mix and Master a track for us. He knocked it out of the park, was quick, and clearly cared about giving us a track we would enjoy. If you are wondering who to work with, it should be Chris.

    Chris is a brilliant producer and has been a pleasure to work with. He communicated what he wanted for the track clearly and therefore made the process very smooth. I would definitely work with him again!

    Chris is a professional, he knows what you are looking for and how to do it. He’s friendly and creative. I trust him 100% and so should you!!

  16. Review by Irene L.

    Chris made a great job. He was clear, precise and fast at finishing the mastering. He also sent me feedback and some very useful tips about the track. I would work with him again.

  17. Review by Victoria Beaumont

    Chris is an incredible producer through and through! I've been toplining a number of tracks for him for Universal and BMG. His understanding and attention to vocal production alone is top notch! Whenever I send him my vocals, his mixes always elevate and enhance what I've created and it's so satisfying to hear once done. His music production and composition is super high quality and his arrangements and understanding of how a good song ebbs and flows is perfect. It's a joy to work with Chris and he's real quick at communication too! Awesome guy & I look forward to working with him again!

    Chris genuinely helped take my productions and music brand to the next level. I am a skilled writer and composer, but he helped enhance my sound design and brought his own mixing capabilities to help me create globally recognized dance tracks. My work is now supported by Armin Van Buuren and other top DJ's.. I will surely use him again for future material ! #JakeTerra

    I have worked with Chris multiple times over the last 8 years and always found his work to have been of the highest standard. As a mix and mastering engineer, he is second to none and has worked on several high profile projects for us. Alistair (Whoa Promo)

    Have been working with Chris for the past 2 years now for mixing and mastering. Always works super fast, and is easy to work with. On top of that, I can always count on Chris as being the last round of production and mixing advice before finishing a track. Highly recommend working with Chris for any type of project!
