Chappo - December 2008 Mix
Fri 30th Jan, 2009 ITM-FM 1535 viewsin
It’s been a whirlwind rise through the DJ ranks of Brisbane for Chappo, aka Brett Chapman. He only caught the DJ bug when he starting harassing his good friend and deep house whizz-kid Ben Smith for tips on the tricks of the trade in mid 2006, yet in the ensuing 24 months has put some impressive notches on his gigging belt.
It¬’s hardly surprising that Chappo has been handed opportunities in the DJ Booth for some of the crews he once admired from afar, firstly with a surprise guest slot supporting Jamie Stevens at the Logic and Sidechain crews’ After Party for the massive Boat Party at Uber in November 2007, and also scoring a opening slot at A Night With…Kasey Taylor at Barsoma early in 2008.
Not that these were Chappo’s first steps into the limelight – in fact his first gig proper (following a stack of well-received Open Decks appearances) was in support of Argentinean progressive house guru Ricky Ryan, a gig that Chappo actually engineered under the Theory branding. A follow-up event at Barsoma also pulled punters in, as did a couple of Sunday sessions at Fringe Bar starring interstate guests Matt Rowan and Keltec.
But in 2008 Chappo has found a permanent home as part of the Samsara Music crew, a collective dedicated to bringing the finest in progressive, deep and tech house sounds and more recently disco to venues around Brisbane.
