We caught up with Manchester-based DJ and rising talent, DJ Chaise. If you don’t already know, get to know. She has already established herself, as one of the ones to watch, making big moves with her unmistakable mixes of of old-school R&B with up-and-coming talent.
DJ Chaise has a flair for discovering new artists, often incorporating them into her own sets. She has played at countless clubs across the UK and worked with big names including Headie One, Darkoo, Unknown T, & House of Pharaohs. Oh and did we mention, she taught herself to DJ in her bedroom? Not too shabby.
If you wanna catch more of DJ Chaise, you can catch her radio show on Unity Radio every other Sunday.
How have you been keeping yourself busy in the latest lockdown?
I’ve been trying to keep myself busy by doing mix’s for radio stations and trying to get that summer body ready
What’s your favourite ever night out as a DJ or attendee?
That’s a really hard question but I would have to say when I DJ’d in London for the very first time. It was a day party then another set after that so it was a very litty day if you know what I mean.
You’ve worked with some AMAZING talent over the years, who else would you like to check off the list and why?
I would love to work with Drake I love his energy when he performs. In the UK I would love to work with someone close to home like Meekz! He’s definitely changing the game. Rubi rose would be a really good artist to work with too.
What was the moment you realised that you could turn DJing into more than just a hobby?
When I got my first club set in Manchester that’s when I thought if other people believe that I can do it then I should believe in myself. DJ’ing is a very male dominated space and a lot of people didn’t believe I could make it as a DJ, so I also wanted to prove them wrong
What aspect of live DJing have you missed the most in 2020?
Definitely the the crowd reaction. The feeling I get off of people reacting from my sets can never be replaced.

What’s your dream festival or club stage to play?
My dream festival would be Coachella. It’s one of the biggest festivals ever so it’s always been at the top of the list for me.
What were your favourite albums as a teenager?
Two of my favourites was Ne-Yo miss independent album and Mary J Blige What’s the 411.
What’s been your proudest career highlight?
Definitely having one of my mixes played on BBC Radio 1 & 1xtra! As child I’ve always dreamed of been on 1xtra so that was huge for me.

What’s on the agenda for 2021?
I would say a lot more of my mixes being aired on national radio this year. I’m trying to get into producing some watch this space & i’m just looking forward to any other opportunities I get.
