When the production work of a recording artist ends up in the record boxes and charts of DJs as widespread and as stylistically different as Carl Cox, Paul Van Dyk, Doc Martin, and Josh Wink, just to name a few, one should take notice. This has been the fate of productions by Greg Chin aka Stryke.

Born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica, Stryke began his music career at an early age. He started playing classical piano at the age of four. Moving to Miami, Florida (where he still resides) when he was ten, Stryke became heavily involved in early electronic pop. His love for Beethoven and Chopin were quickly joined by his new love for groups such as Depeche Mode and New Order. Buying his first synthesizer at age 12, Stryke quickly learned the ways of additive synthesis and began writing electronic songs with his trusty monophonic Roland SH-101 synth. He soon discovered house and techno from a mix tape given to him by his cousin, who was a DJ in New York. He was hooked.

At age 14, the young Stryke had already begun DJing to make money to buy more synth equipment. But after discovering this new underground dance music, he became as passionate about DJing as he was about making music. Says Stryke of the two, "Both production and DJing have really become one in the same for me. I really can't separate the two. The words musician, artist, and DJ, all have the same relevance to me."

Although his styles as a producer range anywhere from hard techno, smooth house, ambient, and progressive house, Stryke hates the barrier game. "I see it all as music. Every genre has music, which is good and bad. That's it. I hate the fact that people raise an eyebrow when I release a so-called progressive song, when they know me for techno. All that should matter is whether something is good or bad. Period."

Make no mistake however, all pigeonholing talk aside, when it comes to DJing, Stryke gets primal. He's considered to be one of the top DJs in electronic music today. His globetrotting schedule and growing legions of fans are proof positive of his ability to command dancefloors worldwide. His dexterity is proven time and time again. While DJing, Stryke utilizes three turntables, digital CD players, and live effects processing. The future looks extremely bright for Stryke. He's collaborated with artists such as Christian Smith and John Beltran. With releases on labels such as Hooj Choons, Guidance, Isophlux, Platform, Fluential, and many others, there seems to be no end in sight for this bright star. Add to this his new label, Substance Recordings, and his ultra rare techno imprint Signal Communications, Stryke is quickly becoming the hardest working man in electronic music. Listen...Communicate...Understand.
