ABOUT

DJ / Radio Host / Record Collector

Having grown up in and around nightclubs (his father managing the legendary Wag Club and later The Metro Club) it is no coincidence that Chris Campbell caught the music bug at a very early age. Where as the Wag heavily influenced his musical tastes as a young kid it is at The Metro Club where he cut his teeth DJing, playing Indie Rock, Electro, New Wave, Funk and Soul. Fast forward 15+ years of DJing and Chris has several new projects including Pinoy Grooves… a blog, label and alias he also DJs as where he dives deep into the musical heritage of the Philippines (himself being of Filipino descent) and Indie 45s an archive of the tunes he used to play at the beginning of his career.

As Pinoy Grooves he has done events and curated playlists for Don Papa Rum (Casa Sugarlandia), Brixton Village Lates, Sarap Baon (Brixton), Sarap Restaurant (Mayfair), Camberwell Fair, The Adobros, Kusina and Ton Tons to name a few.

As well as having his own monthly show on Soho Radio London NYC + Culture he has also guested on Sonrisita’s Artform Radio for Worldwide FM, Vex Ruffin’s Manila Times on NTS Radio, Manila Community Radio, UNKNWN Manila podcast, Madera Verde on SOAS radio, Totally Wired Radio and is also a regular guest on Mono Loco Mixtape & The Night Jazz Flight on Soho Radio.
