Internationally acclaimed DJ/producer, Chuckie has returned with another genre-bending crossover single, “Skydive” ft. Maiday, which was first premiered by Danny Howard/BBC Radio 1. The King of Dirty Dutch himself has a knack for creating huge electro house anthems with his signature Dirty Dutch style. With his recent EDM/Hip-Hop fusion ‘Makin Papers’ ft. Lupe Fiasco, Too $hort, and Snow Tha Product, Chuckie showed his ability to master a huge crossover hit, and with this bold pop-infused dance floor anthem, once again assures Chuckie’s unrivalled ability to blend styles in innovative ways. Switching between the euphoric synth progressions and smooth vocal delivery that mark the intro and a pounding, elastic Dirty Dutch drop, “Skydive” offers both emotion and energy, delivering musicality and dance floor impact in equal measures.
The single will also be backed by a diverse trio of remixes from Decibel, Roska and Vato Gonzalez. First up, Radio 1-championed bass music producer Decibel rewires the original melodies around a low-slung trap beat full of buzzing energy. UK house lynchpin Roska strips the track right back, playfully reworking the vocal melodies over a shuffling drum line and plunging bass that bring out the soulful elements of the original, while Dutch DJ/producer Vato Gonzalez delivers a storming dirty house version.
Coming off of a stellar year for the multi-award winning and internationally applauded DJ/producer Chuckie – dropping a slew of new music, collaborating with Slash, launching his Dirty Dutch Radio show and playing at some of the biggest clubs and festivals in the world, such as EDC, Tomorrowland, and the first Electric Festival in Aruba, amongst numerous other accolades. On October 16th Chuckie will be launching international dance summit ADE with a Dirty Dutch party at the world-renowned Paradiso Club, taking the helm for a special 5-hour set at the intimate venue. Looking forward, he will also be re-commencing his residency at the world-renowned Marquee nightclub in Las Vegas, as well as embarking upon another as yet unannounced residency.
