Chino here refers to multiple artists. 1. Combining versatility with style and determination defines the energetic finesse of Chino. This DJ/producer from Miami, FL has already made great strides amongst the drum and bass circuit in his relatively short time behind the boards.
Chinos influences date back to early childhood having started musical training at age five and moving from piano and guitar on to violin, viola, and cello. As a teenager he discovered his parents collection of Latin folk music and took on his mothers love of old disco, funk, and soul. In 1998 Chino discovered drum and bass and hasnt looked back since. LTJ Bukems Atlantis wet his palette towards drum and bass textures and he cites Ed Rush and Opticals classic Wormhole LP as the icing on the cake.
He soon took on DJing and shortly after began his foray into production. Chino landed his first release, Temple of the Sun, on New Identity Recordings and this tune went on to grace drum and bass icon Fabios weekly broadcast on the BBCs Radio 1 station. Since then he has also released on labels such as Avalanche and Renegade and has a slew of forthcoming releases on Gasm, New Identity, Intrinsic and Renegade Recordings. As Chino turns his sights on the future look for more top notch production running the gamut from head-nod inducing smoothed-out-soul to dance floor mayhem and sound system menaces.Make Chino Playlist
