Since starting his journey into the world of electronic music UK based (Newcastle) VERV AKA Chris Hodgson has developed his style by visiting different cities around Europe to see his favourite artists play, each time gaining inspiration that would carve out the path he so wishes to follow.
Chris Hodgson’s inspiration mostly came from artist and live performer Richie Hawtin and his ENTER brand along with all the amazing artists that play for him, all mind-blowing in their own right. This form of music just optimises the fundamental electronic sound he so loves today. Other musicians he takes much inspiration from include Stiv Hey, Fabio Florido, Dubfire, Paco Osuna, Julian Jeweil, Marco Carola, Rafa Siles, Rosper, Ben Klock, Marcel Dettmann, Fer BR, Carlo Ruetz and Carlo Lio to name just a few.
Chris has played at some of his home city’s biggest nights and he now looks forward to reaching out to the wider music community. Having built up a catalog of his own music he has some up coming releases on top labels including Airtaxi and Egothermia along with remixes and EP’s due out on fledgling labels with whom he looks forward to growing with artistically.
At 27 Chris Hodgson has the world at his feet and an endless sky of opportunity ahead. 2017 is going to be a good year for Chris as his sound finally ventures out after years of perfecting his trade.
