Producing records since 2002, releasing internationally since 2006, Irishman Chymera has carefully honed his melodic brand of techno and house over the years and found support from a wide range of DJs and fans in the process
Producing electronic music since 2002, Irishman Chymera first started gaining wider recognition in 2006. His track “Midnight at the Aquarium”, sitting neatly at the juxtaposition of house and techno, forcefully announced his arrival on the international scene. He followed this up with several key tracks on heavyweight labels like Ovum, Delsin and NRK and further solidified his intensely personal brand of melodic techno and house.
Adept at performing his own music, he’s honed his playing style over the years to the point where he can rock any stage, big or small, reinterpreting his favourite tracks for the audience and utilising various pieces of hardware in addition to his trusty Ableton setup. His energetic sets have brought him to almost every continent and some of the finest clubs and festivals in the world such as Panorama Bar, Today’s Art Festival, Womb, Output, Nachtdigital, Rex Club and more.
As well as releasing his introspective album “Death By Misadventure” on Connaisseur, notable tracks like his house hit “Curl” on Dirt Crew Recordings and emotional techno epic “Pump” on Cocoon, have found their way into the hearts of many DJ’s and fans around the world. It’s no wonder that he’s been personally approached to remix tracks by Moby, Funk D’Void, Alex Niggemann and Hunter/Game among others.
To this day he’s stayed true to himself, combining his love of Detroit techno and Chicago house into a thoroughly individual and distinctive mix. 2016 will see fresh EP’s on both Ovum and Cocoon, as well as a brand new ambient album under his alias Merrin Karras.
