CHRIS COLBURN  (Rohmaterial/H-Productions/8 Sided Dice/Driving Forces Recordings/Decoy Records)
Since 1993, techno has been Chris’ passion. After debuting in Brighton, UK, he played sets at various locations in Britain before finally beginning to produce tracks in 2005, teaming up with Huw Jones in Wales to produce 2 EP’s on Huw’s Native Collective print. Chris returned to the studio a couple of years later, having moved back to his hometown, Southampton. His first solo work, Stone Town EP was the first of 6 solo releases on Alan Fitzpatrick’s 8 Sided Dice label between 2010 and 2012, with the most recent ESD outing, Destiny EP, included Cari Lekebusch on remix duties. Chris also delivered a few remixes during this time and during 2012, released solo tracks on two more labels, GSR and Decoy Records. Now based in Berlin, he has started his own label, Rohmaterial. The 4-tracker launch for this new project, Stick Or Twist EP, was released in March 2013. The EP received great support from DVS1, Cari Lekebusch, Alan Fitzpatrick, Rebekah and many more.  Tracks from Chris’ Dilemmas EP, have also been regularly played throughout 2013 by the likes of Ben Sims, DVS1, Richie Hawtin, Len Faki, Drumcell and Slam. Over the last year, Chris has enjoyed working many of the clubs around Germany, as well as visits to Hungary, Russia, Belgium and UK.
