THIS Bank Holiday Sunday the Pulse Venue in Letterkenny welcomes a DJ who has taken dance and urban music by storm in Europe, The United States, and South America and beyond.
Having risen to fame with chart successes such as Let The Bass Kick and Aftershock, DJ Chuckie is a global phenomenon who never fails to win over legions of fans with his upfront approach to making and playing music. Although Amsterdam based, this truly international DJ and producer works tirelessly to fit everything into his hectic schedule.
Born in South America’s Surinam as Clyde Sergio Narain, Chuckie later moved to The Netherlands where his passion for hip-hop and electronic music grew and eventually manifested itself in his decision to become a DJ and producer.
His own Dirty Dutch club concept has evolved over the years from a solid urban event for 6,000 people into a massive house music night for 30,000 people and now even consistently sells out Amsterdam’s RAI stadium in record time.
After winning MOBO awards in both 2004 and 2005, Chuckie has proven to be a prolific hit maker in the studio too with a steady back catalogue of highly successful singles and remixes ever since. 2009’s Let The Bass Kick became the anthem of that summer and eventually went on to reach no.9 in the UK singles chart, catapulting him into the global consciousness.
For his latest remixes, Chuckie has brought his no nonsense approach to The Saturdays’ Notorious and Eric Morillo’s Stronger.
Having landed a multi album artist deal with Atlantic Records in the USA, Chuckie has spent the latter part of 2010 and on into 2011 working on his own material in the studio alongside megastars such as of TPain, Tinie Tempah, Kesha, Alexis Jordan, P Diddy, 50 Cent, Lil Jon, and Akon.
