A little bit about me
Kris – Soundman & DJ
Sound engineer and system technician, over twenty years experience working within the music industry. He worked with major artists mixing FOH before going on to form Aztec Sound.
My name is kris, I have been a vegetarian since my teenage years, now eating organic only diet. My understanding in nutritional values stems from my time as a Chef in fine dining, being passionate about healthy eating as well, is why all our food is all good quality, organic and vegan food made to high standards.
I am an environmental campaigner with strong beliefs in the use of renewable and natural energy, human and animal rights activist. I genuinely believe in the power of natural healing (Meditation, Nutrition: Mercola (links) vitamin d (links)) and alternative medicines (rife machine -link-, Earthing -link-)I would consider myself a herbal medicine practitioner, having healed myself from cancer.
Having playing the guitar since I was a teenager I can see and understand the value of music and sound. I am still to this day making music. I have had the privilege of experiencing many scenes, swept along in the 90’s free party scene, reclaim the streets protest, London squat parties and teknivals in Europe. My music experience is vast, ranging from working in music production in top London’s venues (See CV) (Millennium dome, etc) to gigging and touring with the top artists (Aphex Twin, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Shen Yun).
