Chloe Harris Biography

Real name / Chlo Harris

Moniker(s) / Raica

Like all the best DJ’s Chloe’s primary interest is sharing great music. This has taken her from working in Seattle record shops as a child to featuring in some of the worlds best record boxes as an adult.

After working in records shops from age 14 she moved to record shop / radio station in 2000 and started her first radio show ‘Further’. This early opportunity to showcase her diverse sound to thousands of international listeners made her hungry for more, so in 2002 she started B-sides’ on Proton Radio with license for a more experimental approach. This has led to prestigious guests such as Ellen Allien, Marco Carola, and Lusine as well as allowing Chloe to explore every inch of her vast record collection.

Her shows must have caught the ear of John Digweed because in 2004 he asked her to showcase on his internationally syndicated Kiss FM Transitions program. As her worldwide profile started to rise Chloe played from LA to Warsaw, San Francisco to Budapest, fitting in her debut at John’s Bedrock 6th Birthday in between. Most of 2005 was spent flitting between Europe and North America with highlights including another Bedrock London gig and the opportunity to play techno at Detroit’s legendary club, The Works.

In 2006 Ministry Of Sound took her on the Baltic Sea Tour headlining clubs in Lithuania, Latvia, and Finland. In the summer John Digweed requested her warm up services for the first transtions tour of the US. As her reputation for trippy deep and groovy warm up sets spread Jimmy Van M had her open his nights from Seattle to Mexico City, the success of which led to another two Mexico trips that year.

In 2007 her profile went up another notch after her production work caught the attention of Dubfire, Hernan Cattaneo, James Zabiela, as well as John Digweed and Jimmy Van M. She remixed Petter, Pole Folder, Sam Ball, as well as releasing her 12″ debut single ‘Skooch’ on Mashtronic Records, featuring a highly acclaimed Oliver Lieb remix. Chloe rounded out the year with the 3rd Transitions Tour and slots at two of the worlds biggest dance festivals, Global Gathering in the UK, and V-Fest in Vancouver, as well as flying back to play in Kosovo, Cyprus, and Lithuania.

In 2008 Chloe hopes to find more ways to share music by starting her own Further record label, and fitting in as much studio time in between doing as many gigs and radio shows as possible.
