Chris Mindel/Disco Aliens/Christopher Mindel


Read the Chris Mindel/Disco Aliens/Christopher Mindel Interview below and share it on social media.


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


My name is Chris Mindel. I am DJ and Music Producer. I make and play various types of House and Techno. I can play and produce solo as Chris Mindel or under our group name Disco Aliens. I am from the United States. Born and Raised in Louisville Kentucky, I am now based out of Los Angeles California. You can find some of my sets and original music at https://soundcloud.com/chris-mindel-elektrolyte


How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


My tastes have definitely changed and evolved over the years. When I first found dance music, I was an open book, absorbing all the information I could. I liked breaks, drum and bass, hard house, mainly because that was what I was exposed to in the scene. But I initially gravitated towards trance, which is what I eventually played when I first started to DJ. A few years down the road and we started going to Miami for WMC and Ultra every year as this was my first experience in dance music on a large global scale. My tastes for trance remained strong but I also started following electro house and Miami bass. It was also in Miami where I first found house music, though it would take a few more years to become my favorite. Years of traveling all over the midwest for music events, I was eventually led to Detroit. I knew Chicago was a big deal with it's origins of house music, but I had no idea what was up with techno or Detroit. It was like I had graduated to the next level and would never be the same. House and Techno would forever be ingrained into my soul. Eventually I realized Kentucky wasn't the best place to pursue dance music, so I moved myself all the way to the other side of country to Los Angeles even though I had never even been to California. The time was right and I was called to the west coast. My sense of house and techno took a refined shift once I found the LA underground as well as the burning man desert culture.
