Biography

In Chicago - 2001. Indie label On Ten Records started is run of critically acclaimed & street underground hip hop discs with “On Ten Runnit”, following up with Chris Casino’s first solo release “Go 2 Hell or Some Other Big City” in 04’. The summer of 06’ brought the heat with “Volume Ten” & it’s “Blunts & B-sides” companion disc. During that time, Casino produced several indie film scores along with music for commercials ranging from the local midwest to MTV & DVD magazines “Gypsy Style” & “Vixxxen”.

2008. Chris Casino definitely has his hands full - not only is he writing, producing & mixing his latest projects “Boom!Box” & “The Legendary Slick Chris”, but he is also producing Hip Hop releases from On Ten Records artists Novacane, Agile, & the songstress Zerrin. He’s also working on various film & video game scores & commercials. Not to mention keeping fresh & exclusive instrumentals for sale online.

“My music is potent hip hop...edgy, melodic & bass filled beats mixed with real but funny & thought-provoking songs about lives in these days & times. I usually compose my tracks first, then I write my songs. The subjects are inspired by the beats - but - the beat isn’t the star of the song, neither are the lyrics - both have to be equally as Hot! I try to make sure that when you listen to my music, that the song, score or whatever is going to pull that raw emotion out of you whether it’s laughing & playing around - having a good time, sadness, or inciting angry madness, & that my lyrics are accurate & honest. Plus I get the job done when I’m in the studio.”

“Go check out & listen to the 5 discs & other projects I’ve produced right here at www.chriscasinomusic.com - It’s Production...& Rawness with the Pen...it’s Entertainment for the world wherever you are from or at. My music is like a (real - not fake) Air Jordan: so many different ones you like - styles & colors. I try to stay giving a bit of something everybody can bump & enjoy - that is - if you wanna bump & enjoy!”
