House Music is Child's Play to Suriname's DJ Chuckie

Remember when you heard someone talking about the growing ubiquity of making music, and how tomorrow’s hottest sound is not coming from New York or London, but is probably being created as we speak by some kid in Suriname?

That kid’s name is DJ Chuckie. Chuckie found his way onto the global airwaves from South America’s tiniest nation. Growing up, he caught the mixing bug and took his chosen format to a level beyond anyone from his home country in recent memory.

Chuckie found his way into the Hague’s DJ scene in the early 90s and made enough of a sound in the Netherlands to end up as a featured act at the massive Sensation party. If there’s a DJ in the world deserving of an intensely ornate, winged DJ booth, it’s Chuckie. His renditions of other house DJs’ tracks have gotten him in the mix all over the place, including sessions by David Guetta. Most recently, he teamed up with French DJ Gregori Klosman on a remix of “Mutfakta.”

We haven’t had the pleasure of seeing Chuckie live, but if you happen to be along his path through the world, be sure to check him out. I mean, look how much fun he’s having in this footage from this year’s Electric Zoo festival.
