Chris Rich

Chris has been working with electronic music since 2005, and has been stuck on psychedelic music since an early age.

In 2007 he started DJing Psytrance and began playing at nights around the South West of England.

Feeling like there was a lack of the type of sound he wanted, and on a mission to find sounds to move dancefloors, fields and forests alike, Chris decided to begin moulding and warping his own Psychedelic trance music at the start of 2008.

In 2011 Chris signed to Bom Shanka Music, and brings a blend of uplifting psy, with a dark, wobbly edge...

Echo-Mathmatikal

Introducing new Shanka superstar Sense Datum's debut EP 'Echo-Mathmatikal'. Already famous for his amazing Hi-Tek with Loose Connection and his superb bass music Eurythmy, Kris has now spread his ample load of talent into the Psy-Trance gap.
It's a stunning mix of Hi-Tek-esque squiggles and deep proggy forest sounds, all on a Shanka soundscape. It really is music for the future; deeply psychedelic, hugely moving and more intelligent than Steven Hawking... check it out or miss out!

Mixed and mastered by Al Shanka at New Shanka Studios.
