Chris SSG is best known as the co-founder of the now defunct MNML SSGS blog, 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 is the organizer of a series of MNML SSGS events, and is a resident at 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. He has DJ’d at many major Tokyo clubs, including Unit, Air, Dommune, Galaxy, and SuperDeluxe, as well as at the FREEDOMMUNE and Rural festivals. His podcast for the New York based ‘Mysteries of the Deep’ series was included in Clubbing Spain’s top 10 mixes of 2014, and his podcast for Rob Booth’s ‘Electronic Exploration’ series was included in That Special Record’s ‘best of 2015’. Chris SSG commenced 2016 by playing in the Elektroakustischer Salon as part of Berghain’s Silvester party.

Chris SSGと言えば、鋭い洞察力で的確な音楽批評を発信していた今は亡きMNML SSGSブログの創始者の一人だったことが一番良く知られているかもしれませんが、近年はオンライン上から東京のテクノシーンに活動の場を移し、MNML SSGSのイベントのオーガナイザー、非定期的に開催されているチルアウトパーティーSound Gardenのレジデントを務めています。ダンスミュージックという枠に囚われず、アンビエント、エクスペリメンタル、コスミックなサウンドをアブストラクトなテクノと織り交ぜながらDJ活動をし、Unit、Air、Dommune、Galaxy、SuperDeluxeなどの東京有名クラブの他に、FREEDOMMUNEやRuralなどのフェスにも出演。Chris SSGのニューヨークを拠点とする「Mysteries of the Deep」ミックスはClubbingSpainの2014年トップ10ミックスにも選ばれました。ブログとしてのMNML SSGSこそ廃止されてはいるものの、いつまでもMNML SSGSの美意識を、力強く刺激的な音楽を通して貫いています。
