While working tirelessly to perfect his signature sound fueled by ambient soundscapes and house melodies, UK based DJ and producer Chris Watson makes a rousing return
“A Music Producer and DJ who brings to life a unique blend of house, electronic dance music, world sounds and ambient music.”
Chris Watson x WOTN NYC Exclusive Year-End Guest Mix 2019
Chris Watson started his journey back in 2014 with his debut release ‘Make The Crowd Go.’ The independently released track went viral, attracting over a million streams and downloads online with a mere £5 spent on promotion (which was a Facebook boost). Being only 16 at the time, over the years Chris’ sound has changed and matured. He spent the following years DJing clubs and festivals around the UK, travelling the world and attending university in London, all the while producing and writing music under a number of different aliases.
He returns in 2019 back under his real name and with his own unique brand of electronic music. With a deep and expressive sound, there are elements of house, ambient and world music in his releases. The EP ‘Real Life‘ is a statement against the growing epidemic of mental health issues caused by excessive social media and internet use. After seeing many of his friends affected by anxiety and depression that was worsened by social media, he felt the need to create uplifting music and spread happiness through his sound; as has always been his mission since his teenage years.
“After seeing many of my friends affected by anxiety and depression that was worsened by social media, I felt the need to create uplifting music and spread happiness through my sound; which has always been my mission since my teenage years”, said Watson.
With ‘Real Life’ providing a snapshot of some of what’s to come in the near future, 2020 and 2021 are set to be two very exciting years.
