Chrissy is also a well-regarded voice on dance music history—he ran the popular “My Year of Mixtapes” and “My Year of Edits” blogs, where he posted an original genre-focused DJ mixes and disco re-edits every week for a year. He also conducted interviews and wrote liner notes for the recent “Hardcore Traxx: Dance Mania Records 1986-1997′′ compilation for Strut Records, and is a go-to historical source for numerous dance music journalists.
In his previous incarnation as Chrissy Murderbot, he helped introduce the world to footwork music through his DJ gigs and releases on Planet Mu, Hyperboloid, and others. He organized the first international tour of footwork dancers, and ran the acclaimed juke/ footwork label Loose Squares.
Chrissy's latest project is a new sister label to The Nite Owl Diner called Cool Ranch, which releases limited, hand-stamped runs of jacking, disco-inspired Chicago house.
