BIOGRAPHYCristian Argese, in art Chris Raynor was born in Turin in 1981 and as he was growing up his passion for music grew, affirming itself fully at the age of 13.
His best friend who was a few years older than Chris helped him to find out about the EDM scene (Electronic Dance Music - the alternative dance music scene, which was then composed of techno, mediterranean, progressive; and trance to a lesser extent) and as a result of this, with time Chris began to mix for himself.
Fascinated by the possibility of being able to express himself through music, Chris began his musical journey in 2000, becoming the resident DJ in a relatively famous Techno Club in Turin just a year later.
From 2003 onwards, Chris began to play in various clubs in Italy, such as:
2004/2005 Winter season “Privé Afrodite” @ Club Due (Cigliano-Vercelli)
2004/2005 Le Saline (Oristano- Sardinia) (as guest)
2005/2006 winter season with staff Remida @ “Ultimo Impero” (Cuneo)
2006 Summer “Privé Monella” @ Privilege (Airasca-Turin)
2007 “Trance Lovers” @ Studio 15 (Noventa di Piave-Venice) (as guest)
The need to find new impulses, for the sake of a continuous evolution, gave life to the foundation of a new movement at the beginning of 2007 called T.T.M. - "Turin Trance Movement" which created TRANCE in PROGRESS parties (where Chris is resident DJ) with the goal to represent all the fervent people who, like the founders themselves, are constantly following the path of Trance sonorities.
