Chaos Control is the co-creation of downtempo electronica producer Roger Groendkye (Mister Chill'R) and multimedia artist Brennan Murphey (Planewalker).

Mister Chill’R is one of downtempo electronica’s most unusual personalities, releasing his debut album “Alien Unfolding” at the age of 68. He has since taken up performing at clubs in his hometown of Portland, Oregon, making a serious impression on crowds one-half to one-third his age. Any comments on his post-retirement choice of direction are generally answered with his signature mottos, “it’s never too late to have a happy childhood” and “I’ll act my age in my next life!” His music “jumps out of the speakers with a desire to be heard, but is chilled out at the same time," says Computer Music Magazine.

Planewalker, at 31, is an artist of many mediums and a seasoned performer, with seven album releases under various aliases which range in style from hip-hop to psytrance. Armed with a computer, a pair of guitars, a projector, and his voice, he brings both live instrumentation and video elements to the group’s performances. His psychedelic influence on the sound is evident in the brain-tickling effects and intricate rhythms that meander in and out through Mister Chill’R’s steady beats. As a Planewalker fan says, “it turns my brain into a gyroscope!"

The unlikely pair began their journey as teacher and student, with Roger taking Brennan’s music production course at Portland’s Spun Academy in 2007. The relationship evolved into a lasting musical partnership. Brennan explains, “When I met Roger, I had no idea how far this would go. In three years it went from teaching him how to use an EQ to performing next to him on stage.”

In a unique blend of nature, technology, and magic, the music of Chaos Control achieves a balance between extremes, opening up the new fusion between bass music and acoustic, natural instruments.
