1. C64 is the artist name of Canadian breakcore/D&B DJ Chris Minifie. Known for his hard hitting sets filled with complex drum work, wild mixing skills and creativity, c64 has emerged as one of the most unique breakcore dj`s, often blending the full spectrum of breakcore / jungle / DnB along with other genres and styles into his sets. His range of styles is evident with the range of artists he has performed alongside with, including Amon Tobin, Luke Vibert, Shitmat, Knifehandchop, Jason Forrest, Plaid, Breakage, Klute, Blame, Panacea and Enduser.
Having toured in support of Knifehandchop (USA 2002), a European tour backing Venetian Snares (May 2005), as well as individual European and Japan tours in 2006 and 2007, including his first performance in Russia (July 2007), c64 has firmly entrenched his mark on the international scene. In addition to this, c64 has performed at such well known international events as the Wasted Festival in Berlin, Elevate Festival in Austria, Bangface and Technicality in London, Kamikaze Warfare in Rennes, North by Northeast in Toronto, DEMF in Detroit and Murder Channel in Tokyo.
On top of a busy dj schedule, c64 also operates two distinctly different record labels, Dross:tik Records and Make:Shift Records. Dross:tik, formed in 2002, is a label focused around the evolving sounds of breakcore and experimental electronics, while Make:shift Records, started in 2003, delves deep into the sounds of left-field DnB and downtempo / breakbeat. Both labels work on a similar format, with vinyl releases geared towards dj oriented music, while the CD releases tend to focus on artist concept albums that reach outside the scope of conventional breakcore and DnB.
2. C64 is the Jack Stanley's solo project, which draw inspiration from Commodore 64 and Old School games.
