Chris Cox record producer, remixer, DJ, mix engineer, and multi-instrumentalist – is one of the most talented and successful dance music artists in the United States. With a regular rotation of sold-out international DJ performances and studio productions that yield nothing but chart-topping hits, Chris Cox is a symbol of the superstar power in dance music today.

There are few who have done more for dance music and the DJ industry than Chris Cox.  With a discography of more than 600 productions, remixes, mix compilations, and a string of 45 #1 Billboard Dance Club Hits, this Nevada native has left a permanent mark. Certainly more than any other producer, Chris Cox is defined by his stand-out remixes that have made him a global phenomenon.

Chris begins 2013 with a #1 Billboard hit original with “Oh Mama Hey,” a collaboration featuring the vocals of house music legend Crystal Waters. This is the first in a series of original productions and songs destined to become dance floor staples much like his genre defining remixes.Cox Logo 2012 square

Rising to prominence in the late 90’s as one-half of the remix/production duo Thunderpuss, Chris Cox has mixed tribal-tipped rhythms into the potent vocals of artists like Madonna, Whitney Houston, Jennifer Lopez, Mary J. Blige, Enrique Iglesias, Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, Shakira, Janet Jackson, and the Pet Shop Boys.

In 2004 Cox received a Best Dance Recording GRAMMY Nomination for his co-production of the Cher song “Love One Another.” He was also a two-time IDMA Award winner in 2000 and 2002 for “Remixer of the Year,” and the recipient of the IDMA Award for “Best Underground 12” Dance Record For The Year 2001”.

As a solo artist, Cox continues to create mind-blowing mixes for superstar artists like Rhianna, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Janet Jackson, Kelly Osbourne, Celine Dion, and vocal legend Shirley Bassey. In 2008 Cox produced and remixed the #1 Billboard Electronic Album “Hannah Montana 2 Non-Stop Dance Party” for Disney sensation Hannah Montana.

Out of the studio, Chris Cox is a world-class DJ who has logged over 3 million miles headlining parties, festivals and residencies performing his signature celebratory, bigger-than-life sets in nightlife capitals such as Paris, Rio de Janeiro, Miami, Prague, London, Las Vegas, New York City, Mexico City, Montreal, Chicago, and Atlanta.

As a musical entertainer in the role of the DJ, Cox adapts a unique and personal musical journey for every venue, crowd, and night. The drums are incredibly important and incredibly varied. From primal tribal-rhythms to rattling militant-stompers, these beats provide the backbone of his boundary-breaking and chance-taking mixes. His musical vision is translated to the dance floor via a format of spectacular live programming, Chris Cox productions, and subliminally sexy arrangements that surpass expectations and surprise even the most seasoned dance music lover.

Chris’ dedication to delivering an unforgettable night is indisputable. He knows when and how to play the funk out of a record, how to summon the soul from a crowd, and how to provide the attitude and magic they desire, crave, and deserve!
