New York’s famed underground dance music curators, Resolute are in the Green Room on July 4th with Chez Damier and Chris Korda. Chez Damier has devoted his life to dance music. After starting out in Chicago, he set up fabled Detroit nightclub the Music Institute with Derrick May and Alton Miller, looked after the business affairs and studio output of Kevin Saunderson’s KMS label, and helped countless producers get a start in the game. On top of that, he has an impressive discography of his own with Prescription (records) , and his work with Ron Trent encapsulates a golden era of house.
He is joined in the Green Room with New York based Perlon recording artist Chris Korda, the transgender, vegan leader of the Church of Euthanasia, a Massachusetts-based organization that advocates halting the overpopulation of the Earth with its four pillars. His sets are highly original, comprising of his own productions.

Already a legendary figure in electronic music, Chez Damier has played close witness to many of the pivotal moments in the history of house and techno. Jointly responsible with studio partner Ron Trent for both Prescription Records - widely recognised as one of the greatest house labels of all time - and ‘The Morning Factory’ - one of the most ethereal jams ever to rock a room - Chez Damier is a true deep house pioneer. More than that, the Chicago DJ has played pivotal roles in the development of KMS, The Music Institute and The Bellville Three, hallowed pieces of musical history that prove his contribution to dance music over the years.
As an artist Chez Damier represents a unique blend; he is as impetuous and daring as now as in 1989 and being able to qualify this with his own unique heritage makes his releases and DJ performances doubly formidable. Today his sets are entirely unique, not just because of the experience and knowledge he can call upon. After something of a hiatus, a series of releases for the German label Mojuba signalled that he was on his way back to show the young pretenders the way and nowadays he has taken the torch of Prescription by launching Balance Alliance as a home for some of the most forward thinking and talented producers he deems fit to join him on the imprint. Studio partnerships with Parisian Ben Vedren has reignited the production flame under several alias, and so now he is back making his best work once more. A regular around the world from DC10 in Ibiza to Smart Bar Chicago and many more, Chez Damier is a modern house hero.
Chris Korda is an internationally renowned multimedia artist, whose work spans nearly thirty years and includes electronic music, digital and video art, performance and conceptual art, and culture jamming. Dubbed “The Bob Dylan of Climate Change” by Groove Magazine, Korda has released music on labels such as Perlon, Mental Groove, and International DJ Gigolo, in a wide range of styles including electro, house, techno, ambient, jazz, and neo-classical.
Born and raised in the canyons of midtown Manhattan, Korda witnessed overpopulation and environmental collapse from an early age. In 1992, Korda founded the Church of Euthanasia, an anti-natalist religion that obliges its members to take a lifetime vow of non-procreation. The Church’s enigmatic slogan “Save the Planet, Kill Yourself” became ubiquitous on bumper stickers and T-shirts, spawning countless knock-offs. Korda expanded “Save the Planet, Kill Yourself” into a techno hit that was backed by DJ Hell, and was subsequently remixed by Danny Tenaglia and played worldwide by Carl Cox. In 1997, Korda and other Church members appeared on an episode of the Jerry Springer show titled “I Want to Join a Suicide Cult.” In 2001, Korda released an infamous music video titled “I Like to Watch” that mixed news footage of the 9/11 attacks with sports and pornography. By 2003, a mix of outrageous provocation and official censorship had propelled Korda to “enfant terrible” status in the art world.
