The legendary Chuck Chillout began his illustrious career on 98.7 Kiss-FM in 1982. Chuck Chillout was one of the first D.J.s to become world renown include Run-DMC, LL Cool J, Salt-N-Pepa and Slick Rick. “Hip-hop was fun and energetic during this time. Hip-hop was just growing so there was a lot of creativity and great liver performances”, says Chuck about the hip-hop community in 1982. “Run-DMC and Whodini were some of the best live performances during this time.”
After leaving 98.7 Kiss FM, Chuck broke new waves at 107.5 WBLS FM for two years. In 1992, Chuck became a VJ for the top rated hip-hop video show in New York City, Video Music Box. Chuck blazed new trails in 1995 by becoming one of the first D.J.’s to play hip-hop music in Japan. Hip-hop artists like Busta Rhymes, A Tribe Called Quest and Run DMC became know in Japan as a result. “Hip-hop was very popular in Japan”, says Chuck, “The people there knew the history of the artist I was playing as well as mine. Japanese people were totally into the culture.”
In 1996, Chuck helped break current superstar DMX by being one of the first DJ’s to play his debut smash hit, “Get At Me Dog.” “I knew this record was going to be a smash because it was different from what was being played on the radio:’ Chuck says about DMX. “ The beat was hot and delivery was different.”
Chuck established Full Blast Promotions in 1999. Full Blast Promotions is New Jersey’s premier record pool. “I established Full Blast Promotions in New Jersey because there was a need for a premier record pool in New Jersey”, Chuck says regarding Full Blast. “D.J.’S in New Jersey were hungry for a company such as Full Blast to step up and take over. Full Blast will continue to grow in the new millennium.”
Chuck’s affiliation with old and new school Hip-Hop and R&B has helped him land the title of one of today’s most sought after DJ’s. Most recently his participation in the Essence Music Festival & Cruise has escalated his career to new heights.
DJ Clark Kent Twitter : @djclarkkent Instagram : @djclarkkent Born in the Republic of Panama, Central America, DJ Clark Kent is proud of his heritage and equally as proud to be a die hard Brooklynite. This super producer and turntable superstar has earned the respect of the ever growing, ever changing music industry. Clark has traveled the world as a DJ playing club's, arenas & corporate events. He has produced music for Jay-Z, The Notorious B.I.G., Jr. Mafia, Rakim, Mariah Carey, Rick Ross & many more. Worked at the following record companies, Epic, Atlantic, East West, Columbia, Motown, Rocafella & DDMG. He has been a consultant for Nike, Where's he designed over 40 projects, as well as, helped with the concept of Nike's NYC flagship store, 21 Mercer NSW. Clark's ability to connect the boardroom and the "cool" of the streets makes him a valuable asset within pop culture. Last November, recently, Clark was commissioned to Host the new Wale "FOLARIN" mixture (Released 12/24/12). Currently he is the host of the Complex media group web series "Quickstrike" & is handling A&R duties on the new Scarface album project.
For years he’s been able to tour in parts of the country other artists were afraid to touch. Unafraid to try out new markets, anyone not into hip-hop before surely was after his show. This revolutionary talent began on the turntable, which ultimately gained him the status of a hip-hop phenomenon; however, Kid is a multi-faceted talent using his craft to create new trends in music that shatter the limitations so often placed on hip-hop artists. From his innovative style, to his second-to-none knack for choosing just the right crowd-pleasing sound, to his unparalleled mixtapes, Kid exemplifies the spirit of the entrepreneurial-minded musician.
Born David Anthony Love in the Bronx, New York, Kid Capri was born creatively ambitious, scaling his family’s old Zenith stereo system in an attempt to scratch records before he was even ten years old. Kid first inched his way onto the hip-hop scene with the grass-roots approach of club gigs and creating mixtapes. Kid is, in fact, the Prime Minister of mixtapes, as he saw their profit potential early in his career. He managed to turn a small business venture into a $2,000 a night underground empire! Once others caught on to the economic benefits of mixtapes, they soon followed in Kid’s footsteps and thus began the Kid Capri bandwagon.
Currently, there are no other DJs on Earth more recognizable to both hip-hop followers and the general public, largely due to Kid’s media sense. His face first became a part of the cultural landscape on the wildly popular Russell Simmons Def Comedy Jam where he gave much of the world its first taste of live-performance hip-hop, as the first ever to perform live on TV as a DJ. From that, Kid became the most heavily demanded entertainment personality by many of the industry’s most respected and successful performers. Kid has toured extensively with multi-platinum artists such as Sean “P. Diddy” Combs, L.L. Cool J, Busta Rhymes, Foxy Brown, NAS, Lil’ Kim, Mase, Jay-Z, Usher, R-Kelly, Mary J. Blige, Dru Hill, Ginuwine and Aaliyah.
Beyond Kid’s renown as a show-stopping performer sits another side of him: the meticulous studio-scientist working behind the scenes to lend that extra wisdom to some of Hip Hop’s hottest-turned-classic records. He revels in the challenge of the ever-changing nature that defines the world of rap music. Prime examples of Kid’s versatility are his production credits. He has produced music for power players like Madonna, Jay-Z, Heavy D, and 50 Cent. His studio precision and artistry have made him a Grammy-award winning producer.
Kid continues to expand on his formula for success. He recently produced and co-directed Loaded Lux’s Lionz Den, a film that focuses on the gritty, no holds barred lyrical battle between some of today’s most promising rappers. The battleground consists of a live audience including numerous Hip-Hop heavyweights and is set at BlackStar Video in Harlem. Loaded was a part of the 2010 Urban World Film Festival in New York City.
Kid has also been featured as lead judge on Smirnoff’s “Master of the Mix”, the hit BET reality TV competition in search of the country’s hottest DJ. On the heels of the success of Season 1, Kid, along with host Just Blaze and fellow judges Amber Rose and Vikter Duplaix, has just wrapped shooting Season 2 of “Master of the Mix”, which premiered November 5th, 2011.
In March 2012 Kid was commissioned to remix “Masterpiece”, an exclusive track featured on the special Smirnoff Nightlife Edition of Madonna’s album, MDNA. He joined her for the album release party in Miami as a part of Winter Music Conference, and the album was released on March 26, 2012.
In the fall of 2012, Master of the Mix made a bold move from BET to VH1. Season 3 is slated to begin filming in Miami in January 2013 and will premiere at
Kid has far exceeded the expectations of his peers, critics and fans. His love for and careful nurturing of his immense talents has enabled him to represent hip-hop with class, individuality and intensity unmatched in the music industry. The impact Kid Capri has had, and will continue to have, is immeasurable. With cameos and features in many of today’s urban music videos there is a steadily increasing demand by many of the industry’s top performers for Kids guidance and expertise. Along with continuously taping HBO’s critically acclaimed Def Comedy Jam series, Kid is steadily touring, selling out shows and balancing his heavy production schedule.
