Chuckie is a DJ, producer, and label owner who has played a large part in bridging the gap between dance music and hip-hop. A scene veteran with over 20 years of experience behind the decks, he was recognized in 2012 as one of The World’s Greatest DJs by Forbes, and in the studio, he has produced high-octane, hard-hitting beats for superstar MCs including 50 Cent, P. Diddy, Lil Jon, Akon, Lupe Fiasco, and Too $hort.

Born in Suriname and now based in Aruba, he is also responsible for the latter’s electronic music boom in recent years. In 2012, he founded the Aruban edition of Amsterdam Dance Event and has helped staged other various music festivals on the Caribbean island, all of which promote tourism.

A testament to his crossover potential and versatile production skills, he has collaborated with radio stars such as Sean Paul, Trinidad James, Flo Rida, T-Pain, and Damian Marley.He won the award for Best Urban DJ in 2004, and the next year, he retained the title while adding a new one to his list of accomplishments: Best Club DJ.
