Chris Ward is the co-­founder and long time resident of Boston’s original and longest running dubstep night BASSIC Boston. He has over 10 years of experience organizing music events and getting behind a set of turntables.

As a kid he grew up on a steady diet of metal/hardcore, hip­-hop, and his parents’ collection from the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s.

His love for music had him to making mixtapes on his parents cassette decks when he only in middle school. But, Chris’ interest in DJing didn’t come about till high school after attending some local events where he heard deejays spinning jungle. His desire for knowledge mixed with a little bit of OCD led him to start collecting records and watch his favorite deejays to learn as much as he could whenever possible. His passion for music, like his record collection spans far and wide from jazz to experimental and everything in between. Chris has opened for numerous artists, and has played at countless venues throughout the New England area. As a performer whether cutting and blending hip­hop to mixing dubstep or jungle on 3 decks Chris is obsessed with finding the perfect mix.
