Chadwick was always meant to be a DJ. In the early eighties he could be found recording hours of music from the radio on his tape deck. He would then “remix” the songs onto another tape deck carefully extending the breaks by pausing, replaying and recording the parts to create new versions. The explosion of break dancing and hip hop in the early eighties brought DJ battles to the Friday and Saturday night radio shows in his home of Richmond, VA. Amazed at the sound of extend mixes, scratching and tape edits being used, he began buying 12” singles and started to try and figure out how the DJs were making the mixes he was hearing. A concert tour called the “Fresh Fest” in 1983 put him in the arena with Run-DMC, the Fat Boys and Whodini, but it was a set by Grand Master Flash that made it all click. The song was Chic-Good Times and hearing it cut up, juggled and reworked live on 3 turntables presented the world of DJing as an art to the aspiring DJ.

Chadwick moved to Washington, DC, a city he had traveled to often for clubs and parties in the early nineties. He regularly went out, absorbing the city’s sound and history, but he withdrew from DJing in public. A chance evening led him to FLASH, a new nightclub soon to open. The opportunity to DJ again on a fully customized sound system was presented and couldn’t be turned down. Chadwick can now be found DJing as a FLASH resident with guest DJs from around the world.
