Chris Malinchak

From the category long overdue posts (it's unfortunately a pretty big category for us), I'll finally write about Chris Malinchak today. Sometimes we feel like we write about Perseus or other French Express acts in every other post, but us never having written about this guy is evidence that we clearly don't write enough about this magnificent label. Mr Malinchak is arguably, together with Jonas Rathsman, label boss Leon's greatest finds.

Apart from being an immensely talanted producer, Chris is both productive, already having notched up a half-dozen releases on French Express, and versatile, ranging from nu-disco, French and filter house to the deep/garage/acid house of his latest EP "Ironbound". The whole release is oozing Trax Records from mid/late 80's (y'all should check out Phuture's classic "Spank Spank"), and "Razor 2.0" is a clear nod to Inner City's "Good Life".
