Born and raised in Paramaribo in South America DJ Chuckie’s mixing skills and general charisma have made him a crowd favorite during live performances. Chuckie’s music is definitely something you can dance to and he sticks to the more house style as opposed to the harder dubstep.

Now selling out shows and gaining a worldwide fan base, Chuckie is someone who is still continuing to rise in the EDM genre.
