Chace’s sound is trademarked by a melodic orchestral bounce, throbbing bassline and his recognisable restrained vocals, as he brings together elements of UK garage with a polished r’n’b shine. With buzz building around his music, he soon started landing gigs in Shanghai. And after a chance encounter with the younger brother of DJ Jerry, from the Dutch trio The Partysquad, Chace teamed up with Yellow Claw’s Barong Family imprint early last year to drop his four-track ‘Destination’ EP.
The Dutch crew took him to Tomorrowland last summer where he became the first Chinese DJ to play the Belgian festival. As well as picking up support from tastemakers like Pete Tong, Zane Lowe and Diplo, he’s also managed to win over his parents. “I brought them to one of the festivals I was playing last year and they finally got to witness what the music scene is all about,” he says. They’ve now joined the ranks of the many tipping Chace to make it big.
