Collecting records and spinning the black wax since the 80's, Chris has been part of the dance scene in one way or another for a long time. An avid Italo House & Old Skool Techno fan, plus a collector of the old Boogie & Electrofunk Jams - an obsession of Chris' that so far has been incurable, a real vinyl addiction.
Vinyl junkie through & through, raised up on pobs and music on continual play at his old mans numerous public houses, it was inevitable that Biskit would one day end up playing his cherished sounds out to the masses.
In the early part of the 90's and up until this present day, Biskit was, and still is renowned for his passion for the House sound of Italy & his vast knowledge and collection of 88-94 Italo House & Techno tracks, that many collectors would look at with pleasure & admiration.
Since the 90's Biskit has been found playing at numerous events and establishments, entertaining people with either the Old Skool House & Techno sound, or the Funky Disco Beats.
At one time in Chris’ life, he presented and played as a weekly FM Radio DJ at 102.8 Chorley FM, presenting several different shows over the years, the most popular being the 'Original' Old Skool show, (alongside Steve RH) - and 'Lil Love', which featured mainly Funky, Tech & Prog House Sounds.
Still obsessed with vinyl, Biskit can either be found deep in a pile of wax, or rotating the black matter on a platter to anybody who still enjoys dancing to proper music!

1988 Italo Disco cover version of the 1979 Canadian Disco classic by Domenic Troiano "We All Need Love". 'Troiano ‎– We All Need Love' is in my opinion the best of the two, especially with the wicked keyboard playing and the Domenic Troiano vocal. This ... See full review

Italo House producers in the early 90s had a real knack for clever combos, and D-Rails "Bring It On Down" is another fine example. In fact if it wasn't for the inclusion of the killer keyboard melody from the 1975 Philly sound instrumental "K-jee" by ... See full review

Nice track from 1999. I bought this on its release due to the cheeky sample that rules the track throughout. 'For Real' samples the Italo hit "Take Me To The Top" by Advance from 1982 to good effect.

Novecento is a cover of Kareen Bay. This is a 1993 repress, using the original plates of Kareen Bay - Come To Me (1989 Italy Out Bank Records). Both Novecento & Kareen Bays music are produced by the same people if I remember rightly.
