When it comes to her sound, Charis is all about diversity. She seamlessly weaves together elements of deep minimalism and soulful liquid drum and bass, drawing inspiration from the likes of Monrroe, Netsky, Halogenix, and Pola & Bryson. Each track she creates is a reflection of her unique perspective and boundless creativity.

Beyond the music, Charis is deeply rooted in the electronic music community. Whether she’s igniting dance floors with her infectious energy behind the decks or collaborating with fellow artists in the studio, she’s all about building connections and spreading positivity.
