Chris’ commercial music career started when he got his first synth at the age of 21. Within a couple of months he had secured his first record deal. Within a year Chris had had several original tracks and remixes released under his main alias at the time – Redd Square. The first Redd Square single was championed by BBC Radio 1 and was playlisted as their ‘Record of the Week’. This lead to being asked to do a Redd Square remix of Ferry Corsten’s “Whatever” on Tsunami Records. The track was a big club success and was supported by Judge Jules and Dave Pearce, giving the record an unprecedented 3 months of consecutive weekly spins on BBC Radio 1.
Chris Dececio then turned his hand to house music and created the Bellatrax project. The first Bellatrax single “I Can’t Help Myself” featuring Sophia May was remixed by Laidback Luke, Sunfreakz, and Henry John Morgan, and soon became an international hit with support from DJs including Pete Tong & Judge Jules on BBC Radio 1, Tom Novy, Eddie Thoneick, Michael Grey, Graham Gold, XM Radio, Kiss FM, Hed Kandi, Radio 538 Holland etc. The track was licensed by Nervous Records and took US radio by storm and held the No.1 spot of the Billboard Dance Airplay Chart for 3 consecutive weeks. Bellatrax was the second most played dance artist in the US in 2008. The single also featured on prestigious compilations such as Ministry of Sound’s Clubbers Guide 2008, Ministry Sessions, Ministry’s Summer 2008, and Hed Kandi’s World Series amongst others. The follow-up single featuring Tina Cousins “Can’t Hold Back” had great support in clubland and radio, including over 3 months of plays on both Kiss FM & Radio 538 Holland.
Since the success of the Bellatrax’ singles, Chris’ production skills have been in high demand with remixes for the likes of Ultra Records, Strictly Rhythm, Nervous, Island Records, Hed Kandi, Universal, Island, Parlophone, Armada, and both Dannii and Kylie Minogue! 7 Bellatrax productions have gone top 20 in the UK Upfront Club chart, including the Kylie remix which reached no.1 in both the UK and US Billboard Club Chart.
