Many people know Chuck as the longtime label manager and artist for Dubfire & Sharam's Deep Dish and Yoshitoshi Recordings. Indeed, in 1998 he met Ali “Dubfire” Shirazinia and Sharam Tayebi and was immediately hired to run some of the dance world's top labels, but he is equally strong as a producer and live performer.
His first remix was released on Yoshitoshi in 1999 and next thing he knew he was opening for Deep Dish at the infamous London underground institution “The End" (R.I.P.). In 2001 his re-rub of Chris Braan's Ananda Project “Falling For You” (for Nite Grooves/King Street) came out and was picked up by Doc Martin in 2005 for his “Mix The Vibe: Doc Martin - Sublevel Maneuvers” compilation. Chuck often rocked Baltimore MD’s Fever and joined local legends Scott Henry and Charles Feelgood for their finale. He was no stranger to the faithful at Washington, DC super-club Buzz, where he became a much beloved regular.
In 2002, after leaving Yoshitoshi, Chuck devoted his attention to the studio in Washington, DC and with music and event production partner Luis Baro (from XM Radio), he helped to create a series of events entitled “All About.” Notably, Jay J Hernandez, Brett Johnson, Demarkus Lewis, Lavish Habits (live), Lance Desardi, Justin Long as well as Louie Vega and The Elements of Life (live) lent their sounds!
In 2005 Chuck relocated to Chicago where he ran the boutique distributor GrooveSource controlling the digital catalogs of several of today's top artists and labels. He has also partnered in the legendary Ferox Records with Russ Gabriel and Melodika Recordings with Fabrice Lig and currently runs his own label Prosthetic Pressings along side partner Sean Sanders. Recent work has seen Chuck remix Chicago luminaries Paul Johnson on Dust Traxx and DJ Pierre on his Afro Acid imprint, he has just completed work on Harrison Crump's upcoming album and continues to produce away with full releases on some of today's top techno labels like Perc Trax.
In January of 2010 Chuck relocated back to Washington, DC where he has set up his own company - 2 Cratez Music - and continues to produce as The System Beater with several releases and remixes forthcoming on Prosthetic Pressings and several other labels.
