CHRIS VAUX (Punchfunk, Icon Ibiza)
Chris needs very little introduction to the Pompey massive as he runs the biggest Tech House night in the city and has done so for many years! Punchfunk & Punchfunk Records have become not just a national brand but an international brand and has seen Chris DJ all over europe from Ibiza to Amsterdam and then some! He has also DJ'ed alongside some of the biggest and best names in House & Techno, including SLAM, Josh Wink, Mauro Picotto, Eric Prydz, Nic Fanciulli, Jo Mills, Fergie, Tim Sheridan, Lottie, Sander Kleinenberg and so many more! His productions are also very tidy and His track “Aim for the head” was supported by the likes of Steve Lawler, Danny Howells and by the Trophy Twins on their Radio 1 show. It reached No1 in several charts including North America’s Nocturnal Magazine and has earned Chris great respect.
His production style is tough, groove driven, electronic techno straddled house music with licks of acid.
STU BRYAN (Indigo, Science)
Stu is another that needs little introduction in this city! His night Indigo continues to pull in the masses and his collaboration with former Infectious resident Rich Thomas has seen new night Science take off big time! He is also a regular at punchfunk and has played all over the country including at the legendary Ministry Of Sound in London.
