Kris bought his first set of turntables in 1993. He took a bunch of MIDI courses in 1994-95. Moon Bass started in 1996 as a show on KUGS, ran for 3 years, and is the origin of Kris “Moon”. He then moved to Seattle and worked at Guitar Center for a couple years, amassing gear for the “Ghetto Den”, his first studio. Kris helped run a club night called Focus/Blur in 1999, where the Division List was created as a sign up sheet at the front door. Zion’s Gate Records hired him in 2000, where he stayed for 5 years as a buyer, bringing in many of the tunes that were played at the techno night Robotrash, where he was a resident for 2 years. He helped pioneer the Laptop Battle concept in 2003 along with Fourthcity, and held the first ever National Battle in 2004. The Decibel Festival had it’s first year in 2004, he was the Educational Director for 3 years, and the Production Manager in 2007, and continue to volunteer. In 2005 Red Bull Music Academy chose Seattle as it’s location, and he was employed as the local liaison for the participants. In 2006 Kris started the first Ableton User Group in Seattle, and won the Battle of the Mega Mixes with a set that included 17 records in 10 minutes. During this entire period, 1999-2008, he played Top 40 at the Ballroom in Fremont every weekend…a man’s got to pay the bills! In 2008 he moved to Missoula, Montana, where he is currently buying for Earcandy Records and residing at the Badlander on Saturdays. 2009 saw the launch of this page, which features the mixes from the return of Moon Bass. The Division List continues to be a steady source of info for the electronic music community in Seattle, and the Laptop Battle is in it’s tenth year.
