Co-founder of the now defunct MNML SSGS blog, Chris SSG is recognized as a leading source of critical insight on electronic music. In recent years, he has moved from the online world into the Tokyo techno scene. He has co-organized a series of MNML SSGS events, as well as the semi-regular Sound Garden chill out parties.

As a DJ, Chris SSG eschews standard dancefloor music, instead focusing on a range of sounds from ambient, experimental, kosmische through to more abstract forms of techno.

Lately he has been focusing on ‘drone and bass’ sets that seek powerful responses from the audience without lapsing into standard 4/4 beats. He has performed at many well-known establishments in Tokyo and the surrounding areas including Unit, Air, Dommune, Galaxy, and SuperDeluxe, as well as the FREEDOMMUNE and Rural festivals.

His podcast for New York based ‘Mysteries of the Deep’ series was included in Clubbing Spain’s top 10 mixes of 2014. Through his DJing, Chris SSG continues to advance the distinctive MNML SSGS aesthetic by presenting unique, powerful music that challenges and stimulates the listener.
