Chris Hill (DJ)


Chris Hill (DJ)

Chris Hill is a British disc jockey. He worked at the club Lacy Lady in Ilford, as well as at the Goldmine Canvey Island.[1] He was the head of the 'Soul Mafia' in London and the South East of England into the early 1980s. In 1975 he released a "break-in" novelty record, in the style of Dickie Goodman, called "Renta Santa", which became a hit single in the UK during the Christmas season. The record peaked at #10 on the UK Singles Chart in December of that year.[2] The following year, he released "Bionic Santa", cut in a similar style; this record also peaked at #10 in December 1976.[2] Both tracks, which included snippets of other hits of the time, were released by Philips Records.[3]

Hill remains a DJ and runs the Lacy Lady in Ilford, as well as having involvement in the Caister Soul Weekenders.
