Chad discovered underground music in a big way when he was just 12 years old listening to House tapes from the likes of a Guy Called Gerald and singers including Keith Thompson. His passion quickly progressed with the explosion of the Hardcore/Acid Rave scene which in turn pushed Chad into buying his own vinyl. A few years later the rapidly growing 4x4 garage enticed Chad to become a full blown DJ, thus his first pair of Technic 1210 turntables were purchased, and now it was his turn to break into the difficult world of DJing.
Years on, Chad has held regular slots on radio and played international gigs in London, Newcastle and Abu Dhabi over the last years; these have included Pacha and Hed Kandi. Chad also managed a bar/club in his local town which had been at the forefront of the local Garage and now House scene.
Based in Abu Dhabi where he has spent the last six years and currently holds a residency at Catch based at the Nation Riviera Beach Club (meet him there Monday - Thursday from 10pm), plus regular pool parties as 'Immaculate Touch'.
Chad won Ahlan Magazine's 'Best in Abu Dhabi' DJ award 2011/12.
