He's also earned a GRAMMY nomination and has performed at the 2010 Winter Olympics and on the MTV Video Music Awards.

Chuckie - The internationally known DJ was named one of "The Dance Music Producers of the Moment" by Rolling Stone. Even though Chuckie is based in Amsterdam, he was said to be inspired by the city of lights during last year's residency, which resulted in his famous track about Las Vegas.

Vanity at Hard Rock
