Chris Philip, a.k.a. DJ Zilos, developed a passion for music at a very young age. He grew up experimenting with a variety of different instruments and eventually discovered an affinity for the drums and percussive instruments. While majoring in music at college, Chris studied with Jeremy Wall from the Grammy Award winning band Spyro Gyra, who introduced him to a whole new level of recording and musical theory. Chris soon discovered a love for the art of DJ'ing and his talent for spinning heavy beats found an appreciative audience at various nightclubs across the greater New York area.
Chris Philip's ability to produce a natural steady groove also led to his being in demand by several up and coming bands across New York State. In his time off from rehearsal he found himself in recording studios laying down tracks, developing his unique sound and dabbling in the art of remixing.
DJ Zilos can currently be found in the studio working on various projects for both major and indie labels. He is always pushing the envelope, experimenting with fresh new sounds and techniques in order to remain on the cutting edge of the music industry. Chris' considerable talents have enhanced his growing remix discography including artists such as Chris "The Greek" Panaghi, Sophia Cruz, Candi Lynn, Diamond Boy Luis, Order Of Sound, PK Project as well as countless others.
"When I hear dance music, the feeling I get is unexplainable," Chris enthuses. "Artists like David Guetta and Tiesto have inspired me to create and spread dance music across the world."
You can find DJ Zilos dazzling the crowds in nightclubs across the country as well as being heard on the popular Amathus Mix syndicated Radio Show. This young DJ/Producer/Remixer continues spinning to the beat of his own drum, with a hypnotic style that is the future of dance music.
