Describe yourself as an producer artist what is your style?
I love to create deep, atmospheric, melodic sounds – especially densely layered soundscapes..

Which part of world are you from and what’s the best thing about it?
I am from Omsk, Russia. It is Siberia. We have an interesting climate, up to +40c in summer and down to -40c in winter. I love the people who live here because they are very kind for living in such severe place, many people here have such a strong spirit.

Chris Mac has done many a mix for us over the years. with his last mix Midnight Scores getting a 1000 downloads in one day, we still know very little about the man. So I decided to ask him what’s happening.
