DJ Chuck Chillout - Bio

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.  "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.
