Music is one of the greatest passions in Christian Merkis life. At a very young age the raw talent of this Swiss native is quickly revealed and he goes on to study the secrets of classical music education. At around 16 years of age, Chris discovers the electronic beat and starts exploring the digital art of music. Soon he begins buying vinyl records and embarks on a mixing journey as dj. In no time he gets noticed by promoters and plays in the biggest national clubs and spectacular festivals attended by thousands of people.
His professional attitude & enthusiasm generated the understanding for the vast depths of electronic music. Early experiment with music software’s like Cubase, finally gives him the ultimate freedom to express his complex mind thoughts into waves of sound. In This is just the beginning of his tale: In fall 2006 Christian joins Swiss label FrakaSound records and within one year of hard work in his underground studio, he completes his epic album in “Search of Water”, which stirs a tidal wave and marking his breakthrough in the global trance scene. Putting a lot of sweat and detail in every section of his composition, he unleashes a selection of steady building up progressive full-on music paired with cutting edge technical skills. He storms the charts with topping action and successfully installs himself amongst the most acclaimed names such as Freq and Liquid Soul. Some album tracks have been remixed by the likes of Klopfgeister, Inner State, Zyce & Flegma and more to come...
Midimal has an impressive chain of releases on labels like Neurobiotic, BlueTunes, Synergetic, Daam, Yellow Sunshine Explosions, Room 31, Moonloop.
