Chrissy’s journey started in Spain at one of her favorite events ‘Vocal Booth Weekender’. Unbeknown to her she was entered into a DJ competition and won it! This was the start of great things and Chrissy was approached by Fresh Sweet and Sexy House Music promotions. They were a fantastic crew to be part of which comprised a team of DJs mainly playing across the Midlands and North of the UK.

Things went from strength to strength and she then teamed up with Anna Cee. The duo were known as ‘Elevation’ and they played the main beachfront bars in Brighton and absolutely smashed it every weekend to a loyal crowd.

Chrissy has played in many places around the world including Tobago, Cyprus, Ibiza and Spain but her latest and probably most notable DJ’ing achievement is having the honor of being resident DJ at both SHE and at Queens. In Chrissy’s own words ”I’m so blessed and honored that my journey has come this far and I’m really looking forward to all my future events”

The reaction to her DJ sets is something to be admired. Keep a keen eye on this lady to witness her passion and love of DJ’ing the best house tunes out there.


James’ musical journey began in the mid 90’s. Partying at the best clubs across London including; The Cross, Bagleys, Turnmills, the infamous Satellite @ The Coliseum, Chunnel, and Sunnyside Up at SW1 to name a few, James got the DJ’ing bug through the amazing dance and house tunes of the 90s era.

An opportunity arose to DJ in Mallorca, so without any hesitation, James jumped on a plane and ended up DJ’ing at various bars and clubs on the circuit, eventually staying for 3 consecutive seasons. James then followed the sun further South with a 2 year residency in Gran Canaria at the premier Spanish nightclub Space.

Once back in London James held a 5 year residency at Barcadia in Kingston, as well as regularly playing at Pacha, Ministry of Sound and Egg for some of the biggest house nights in the early 2000’s. Alongside the gigs James performed for two of Londons most popular pirate radio stations twice a week.

Fast forward to 2022 and after 10 years being a dad, James, with a load more tunes (and a few more grey hairs), now plays across the UK for SHE, Oh So Sexy and various other nights across as well as Soul Fusion in Cyprus and Paphos Beats in Portugal.

The journey continues with the ‘Chrissy and James’ project and this year the addition of Release Radio 2022. Exciting times
