Bio / Previous Work history:

Charlie Chan is a DJ’s DJ. Since learning his craft from the young age of 13, time, patience and natural ability have seen him continue to develop into one of the most promising up and coming DJ’s of today. A seasoned turntablist and talented party rocker, Chan began his rise to the top under the alias of n.Cision and today remains the embodiment of the versatile DJ. Building upon foundations in the battle scene, notably a Top 8 finish in the 2008 IDA Australian Finals and placings in Victorian DMC Finals in 2006, 2007 and 2008, he has progressed, innovated and torn down the wall dividing scratch nerd and all-out party monster!

Mashing together the sounds of rave house, disco, electro house, tech, bass and dubstep all laced with a touch of turntable flair, he always destroys the party for the punters, whilst letting the heads know what’s up.

Making his club debut at age seventeen at renowned monthly Melbourne night, Favela Rock, he has continued to smash dance floors across the Melbourne club scene, with spots at Ding Dong Lounge and First Floor as well as a weekly residency with the Hangtime crew at Eurotrash. More recently since visiting the west coast, Charlie has landed an interstate residency at highly regarded Friday night madhouse Dorcia at The Library in Perth as well as sets at Mother/Father at Republic and with emerging supercrew – Tie The Noose.

Beyond the discotheque, Chan has showcased his versatility and musical prowess at Push Over Festival and Our Backyard as well as launch events for homies Acclaim Magazine and Sneaker Freaker. Recent years have also seen him playing alongside some of Australias’s finest, including the Dublin Aunts, Mu-Gen, Mat Cant, Jus Haus, Oohee, Opulent DJ’s, X n Hell and many more, not to mention support sets for internationally acclaimed artists, Yolanda Be Cool, DCUP, Trumpdisco and The Aston Shuffle.

With his move from hip-hop in 2008 to more electronic influenced sounds, so too came an alias change, moving away from the confines of his previous alias of n.Cision, Charlie Chan has now spawned as a new artist entirely, taking with him the experience and technical ability which brought him such success previously and adding to it a deep passion for electronic music and a newfound sense of direction in his music.

His most recent endeavours include the mixtape series, “Midnight Murder”, a three part series encompassing what Charlie Chan is all about; massive synths, chest shattering basslines and hard hitting riddims. Beyond the conceptions of being only a “DJ”, Charlie is also finding his feet in the world of production and remixing, with a number of remixes currently underway as well as original productions.

2011 is the year for Charlie Chan. Be prepared, the takeover has begun.
