After 10 years of playing for the people at some of Europe's finest clubs, DJ Chris Garcia now brings his unique style and sound to the United States.
Living in Las Vegas and travelling the world, Garcia has spun in France, Germany, Spain and North Africa. His first singles, "Party Started" and "Devil Expression," are dance floor favorites, and Garica’s sound can be heard at Vegas nightclubs such as Risque, House of Blues and of course, the legendary after hours at Drais'.
But Garcia’s career stretches back long before the innovative DJ moved to Vegas, all the way across the Atlantic to France…
Born in Arles, France, Garcia began DJing around 15 years ago, quickly making an impression spinning vocal house and hard electro. In 2000 Garcia founded a group of DJs called S7 Diffusion, which played large student parties, and soon Garcia had been booked as a resident in one of the most famous lounges of Avignon, France called Red Zone. Thanks to his success at Red Zone, Garcia began to play one-off events in clubs from Paris to Barcelona to Djerba, even scoring a residency at Toco Loco, one of the most famous clubs in Béziers, France.
Over the next few years Garcia continued to craft a reputation as a premier European house DJ. He even brought his talents to the classroom, teaching his technique to young people in a national DJ school.
In 2004 Garcia decided to leave France for Vegas. In his new hometown, Garcia joined 702DJ.com and began to play private parties, where his French house music style was welcomed with eager ears. Over the course of the next two years, Garcia cemented his Vegas reputation, playing residencies at Risque, Drais’, Tryst and Tao and earning invites to the Miami Winter Music Conference. Today, Chris Garcia is a well-respected name in local nightlife, and the 33-year old DJ has played along side some of the most important figures in electronic music – DJ Dan, Judge Jules, Erick Morillo and Bob Sinclair. From 3400 at Jet to Confession at Tabu, Garcia is bringing house music to Vegas crowds, one night at a time.
