Chymera, IE - Biography

Chymera hails originally from Cork, Ireland and after spending time in Dublin, Costa Rica and Barcelona is currently based in Berlin, Germany. Throughout his teenage years he was heavily immersed in various forms of guitar based music. Around the turn of the century his ear was drawn towards sounds of a more electronic nature and he quickly started collecting records and learning how to DJ.

In 2002 he made his first steps into production and over the following years gradually honed his skills. His productions often fit comfortably in between house and techno, and range from deeper cuts to epic, big-room tracks, all with a keen sense of melody which has become a trademark of his productions. He had his first international releases in late 2006 which brought him to the attention of the wider world.

Since then he has released on various diverse and respected labels such as Delsin, Ovum, NRK, Cocoon, Figure, Komplex De Deep and Connaisseur who released his 2012 album “Death By Misadventure” which showcased a more introspective side: “Infusing chillout, classical, and dance, Death By Misadventure is an impassioned undertaking that pays off in spades.. …for folks who enjoy music with depth and vision” –

Equally comfortable DJing or performing live he plays regularly in many of the world’s top clubs throughout Asia, Australia, America and all over Europe.
