Chris Dodds

Back in the UK after an extended stint with Oksigen FM, the no.1 dance station in Bosnia, Chris Dodds brings his own brand of progressive and uplifting trance back home. Recent UK appearances alongside worldwide superstars such as Taucher, Azzido da Bass and UK legend Rob Tissera have only enhanced the buzz already circulating around this exciting and talented young dj. Chris was part of the hugely successful Slinky club tour of Bosnia featured in October's Mixmag, and filmed for Channel 4. Chris, along with Daniel Bailey and Tim Lyall delivered the full UK club experience to Bosnia, giving Eastern Europe a taste of how it's done in England, with Chris's energetic and dynamic performances lifting the roof at every venue.

Although a closely guarded secret in the UK so far, Chris continues to host the `Eclectic mix', for Oksigen FM, the top rated dance show in Bosnia with listening figures of 50,000 plus, and his reputation as an exciting and creative dj, is spreading fast. Chris has been mixing his style of uplifting trance for over six years now, and his sets are evidence of his ability to mix the old with the new.
2001 has been an exciting year for Chris, the highlights including playing to crowds of over 10,000 while live on-air in a three-hour broadcast to 55,000 listeners at the Futura 2001 festival in Sarajevo in July, working alongside UK heavyweights on the Slinky tour, and his recent explosive UK debut for Slinky at Freedom in London.
2002 is going to be even bigger and better for Chris, a second tour of Bosnia is already planned, and with interest from the UKs premier clubs increasing, Chris is surely going to be in big demand in the coming year.

Get ready for something completely diferent. A slice of UK clubland is
headed for Bosnia. Glass Half Full, the people who brought you Slinky
Intercontinental back in September 2001 have returned with the weekend to end all weekends. Get some sleep now, because you're in for three sleepless nights in a row, if you can take the pace. It all starts at the Music Hall in Banja Luka on Saturday 6th April, before moving on to rock Night Planet FT in Novi Travnik, and the nights will draw to a euphoric climax on Monday with a finale at KC Sportski Sentar in Bugojno.

The three venues will be transformed with a chest-thumping sound system, and trance-inducing visuals courtesy of UK club promoters Club Class. These guys from Maidstone, England, have been putting on parties and filling dancefloors for over five years, so expect nothing less than that authentic British vibe. Don't forget to look out for the robotic frontman of UK rave gods Altern8, who had hits like Evapor8, as he brings a whole new meaning to the word 'stiltwalking'.


Providing the soundtrack to this full frontal assault on the senses are some of UK's finest DJs, most of whom will be fresh off the plane from the Miami Winter Music Conference (check their tans people!). Tom North, the brains behind Glass Half Full and original London party boy has warmed up for Dace Angel, Goldie, Seb Fontaine, Breeder, Graham Gold and countless others.

Tomislav and Nic Fanciulli are residents at Club Class itself. Their
back-to-back DJ sets are the stuff of legend, and progressive uplifting
grooves are their trademark sound. You might remember Tomislav from his last visit to Banja Luka supporting Boy George. Last but not least of course it's Oksigen's very own wonderboy Chris Dodds, who's quickly rising through the ranks with a string of domestic dates and a recent successfull Glass Half Full CD crammed with the hard trance German sound we've all come to expect from him.

So there you have it. All that's left to you is to get your ticket (upfront
in advance from Oksigen FM), grab your glowsticks and stylish clobber and get down there on the night. Dress to impress; world famous clubbing magazine Mixmag came to the Slinky gig in September, and another big UK magazine is set to make the trip out this year. There'll be the usual press and TV camera action so keep smiling.

If that wasn't enough there'll be free CDs and more surprise giveaways on the night. This is an opportunity not to be missed. You may not be able to afford to sample UK clubbing, but Glass Half Full, Oksigen and Club Class are bringing it to you. So enjoy, and see you down the front!
