Without computers or digital sync, Cox dazzles audiences, often using 3 or 4 Decks and creating live remixes, bootlegs, and buildups.

Later, Cox helped create top-selling label Interhit Records, recipients of the first dance music Grammy. Then came his genre-defining work under the hit-making moniker Thunderpuss.

Chris has performed at major events including Lollapalooza, Coachella, White Party, Black & Blue, Rio Carnival, and the Grammys. His national radio show on SiriusXM is a long-time fan favorite.
