Uber-talented Dutch DJ/producer Cliff Coenraad visits the show this month! Both under his own name and through a matrix of pseudonyms, monikers and collaborative handles, Cliff has twisted and re-imagined the trance genre into his own, fresh off-world sound and in doing so he’s drawn a raft of support from the planet dance’s biggest DJs.
About Cliff Coenraad:
Cliff Coenraad is a key member of the Dutch ‘Trance Generation 2.0’ collective – a highly individual producer amongst a tightly knit and forward-thinking contingent. Behind the decks, Coenraad has proved time and time again his spinning acumen, descending from the clouds to enthrall clubs & festivals. Digital Society, Luminosity Beach Festival, Germany’s Love Parade and Trance Energy are just a few of the gigs and events that have experienced his six-sense tune selection and wildstyle mixing abilities.
Chuckie, the King of Dirty Dutch, brings Amsterdam’s daring, sophisticated and sexy style back to Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas for another year starting January 13. His exclusive 2012 residency promises to deliver all new custom visual programming and performers.
Named one of “The Dance Music Producers of the Moment” by Rolling Stone, Chuckie recently released the ‘Dirty Dutch Blackout’ compilation featuring his new hit “What Happens in Vegas.” “With great inspiration comes great music and the place that inspired me most last year is really Las Vegas.” Chuckie says of the track. “Vegas is now officially ‘housed’.” Indeed, Chuckie’s residency last year saw him command Marquee’s 40-foot LED DJ booth and state-of-the-art Funktion One sound system to bring in a packed house every month.
Having risen to fame with chart successes such as “Let The Bass Kick” and “Aftershock,” Chuckie’s career has continued to develop. He is a global phenomenon who never fails to win over legions of fans with his upfront approach to making and playing music. Taking dance and urban music by storm in Europe, The United States, South America and beyond, he is spreading the Chuckie flavor with his explosive beats, surprise FXs and adulated climaxes. 2011 also saw Chuckie join the BBC Radio 1 team to present his ‘In New DJs We Trust’ show, spinning to a world-wide audience and showing off his undoubted talent behind the decks. As his stock continues to rise and rise, it seems the era of Chuckie domination is only just beginning.
