MNML SSGS co-founder; currently exploring the edges of techno music in Tokyo.
Chris SSG is best known as the co-founder of the now defunct MNML SSGS blog, recognized as a leading source of critical insight on electronic music. In recent years, he has moved from the online world into the Tokyo techno scene. He is the organizer of a series of MNML SSGS events, and is a resident at the semi-regular Sound Garden chill out parties. As a DJ, Chris SSG eschews standard dancefloor music, instead focusing on a range of sounds from ambient, experimental, kosmische through to more abstract forms of techno. He has DJ’d at many major Tokyo clubs, including Unit, Air, Dommune, Galaxy, and SuperDeluxe, as well as at the FREEDOMMUNE and Rural festivals. His podcast for the New York based ‘Mysteries of the Deep’ series was included in Clubbing Spain’s top 10 mixes of 2014, and his podcast for Rob Booth’s ‘Electronic Exploration’ series was included in That Special Record’s ‘best of 2015’. Chris SSG commenced 2016 by playing in the Elektroakustischer Salon as part of Berghain’s Silvester party.
