Some might know Dean Chalkley as one of the top photographers in the country, but being immersed in soulful music and growing up in the Thames Delta town of Southend-on-Sea meant a very natural progression for him to also express himself in a musical sense. Dean plays exciting uptempo original vinyl, fusing Rhythm & Blues, Northern Soul, and a range of other genres that focus very much on the dancefloor.
Since a teenager Dean has played for many clubs and festivals as well as staging his own highly respected club nights, most notably Shake! at the Boogaloo and Black Cat at the Silver Bullet. Dean has joined forces with Eddie Piller from Acid Jazz and The Smoking Guns Djs to present the current smash, Soul Box at Old Street Records and continues to guest spot across the UK and Europe..
