Chris Roeder, known as CHRIS138. was born and raised in Southern California and made his way up to the PNW in 2015. He first grew a love for trance music listening to Tiesto’s “Elements of Life” album, and since then, his passion has grown from listening to mixing.
Over time, his music taste has diversified and he now mixes anything from Trance, to Melodic House, to Hardstyle, to even Dubstep on occasion. The 138 in his name stands for 138 beats per minute commonly found in trance, as his trance sets contain emotion and energy flowing throughout the mix.
One of his favorite parts about being an artist is interacting with the crowd and conversing with fans. As an avid concert-goer and participant within the electronic dance music scene, he understands and appreciates the fan side and welcomes anyone who wishes to learn more about the music he plays.
Chris strives to grow as an artist and learn more in the industry, providing music and most importantly, happiness, to others.
