Chris Kionke - Vorsprung Durch Techno

Kick Radios original resident pet german (his own words!) has been delivering the latest promos, freshest tunes, dopest classics and other, strangely beloved "weird german shite" from all across the electronic four-to-the-floor playground for almost 7 years, ranging from gentle to brutal material and basically everything in between. And he certainly aint afraid of the microfone, too!

Chris started DJing for himself at a local club back in 1997-
heavily influenced by the so-called "Sound of Frankfurt" in all of its facettes.
Soon enough hooked by the more "pure" and "techy" approach to dance music, CK discovered DJs and producers like Chris Liebing, Johannes Heil, Anthony Rother from Germany or Adam Beyer from Sweden, alongside the likes of Speedy J. and Umek among countless others- in what was "...really an eye opening experience", as he recalls.

Chris is a versatile DJ nowadays who can push music across the board keeping it fun, versatile, groovy and gritty through out.
This can be varied from chunky jackin house right through the numerous forms and shapes techno makes from minimal to tribal, from slow to beefy material and from overwhelmingly melodic tuneage to the classic House that Jack once built!

Chris can be heard live on air every week on Kick Radio, not only showing off his favourite tunes of the week but also featuring guest DJs and label specials from all over the globe (by the way, you can follow the realtime live playlist feed for every show right here). After years of gaining experience, Chris has finally entered the world of music production just recently and it is easy to assume that there will be quite a few surprises unleashed in the future- collaborating with his partner Adam Schock not only in the studio, but also supervising the label  "Tanz-Kultur Audio" .
