CHOOKY - THE JOURNEY CONTINUES.....
If there was a list DJ's had to complete Chooky's list would have ticks all over it! After being seduced into DJ'ing in the break-dance frenzy of the late Eighties, Chooky has been on the DJ roller-coaster ride ever since, putting his hand to everything from club nights to festivals.
Chooky currently hosts weekly internet shows for UK based house music station, Reelhouse TV (www.reelhouseTV.com) Sundays from 8 PM to 11 PM (EST) (11 AM to 2 PM standard UK time) and Wednesday nights from 7 PM to 9 PM (EST) playing mostly Australian house productions to a Global audience.
From club residencies to radio shows, co-ordinating, promoting and producing everything from hip-hop and dance parties through to festival dance marquee's, as well as producing and remixing his own take on dance music, Chooky has been empowering the local dance scene for over 25 years!
His musical base is deep & funky old-school house and broken beats with powerful bass lines, a hint of nostalgia and grating of mild cheese, but sets can stray anywhere from chill-out, nu-disco or Aussie hip-hop to Moombahton, dubstep or drum'n'bass in the process.
He has been playing local nightclubs, bars and dance parties since the early 90’s with a passion which has endured and evolved over the years.
For someone who hasn't strayed from his home town of Cairns, Chooky has managed to play along-side a pretty impressive list of A-list DJ's over the past decade, including internationals Roger Sanchez, Krafty Kuts, Dave Seaman, Axwell, Chris Fortier, Serge Santiago, Supafly Inc., Tocadisco, Carl Kennedy, Fort Knox 5, Superstyle Deluxe, Freq Nasty, Bodyrox, Hyper, Blim, Cut La Roc, Sharkey, Dave Lee (Slinky), Kai Tracid, Uberdruck and Kaylab as well as Aussie DJ’s Kid Kenobi, Phil K, John Course, Mr. Timothy, Grant Smillie, Ivan Gough, Jono Fernandez, Dirty South, Andy J, Christian Luke, Frazer Adnam, Dave Winnel, Mynx, Andy Van, Archie, John Ferris, Peewee Ferris, Matt Kitshon, Mark Dynamix, Danny Bonnici, Matt Nuggent, Ken Cloud, Nick Fish, Declan lee, Jen-E, Thief, Goodwill, Tim McGee, Alex Taylor, Bexta, Sean Quinn, Odyssey, Aniki, Dexter and many more.
