Kerri 'Kaoz' Chandler, a house music legend since the early '90s, is bringing his electrifying sets of soulful, authentic, positive house music to Cyprus Avenue on 6 September.

Having grown up in New Jersey in a family of jazz musicians, he has unsurprisingly inherited both an instinctive inclination towards creating addictive beats and a passion for the musical origins of soul, disco and the New York underground sound. Having started spinning records in a local club at the tender age of 13, he has evolved to establish himself as an undisputable DJ and producer.

Over the years, Kerri has built up a repertoire of irresistable beats that have made him one of the most respected house producers across the globe. This is largely due to him remaining true to his roots throughout his musical journey and his unique ability to blend tradition with innovation in fascinating new ways.

He is affectionately known as the 'Stevie Wonder of house music', having consistently laid down timeless albums brimming with intoxicating beats, pulling inspiration from multiple genres.

Another element to Kerri’s style is how he injects spirit into the dance floor by playing live sets, remixing tracks on the spot whenever he can through his army of equipment - some of which he handcrafted himself in order to bring his cutting-edge imaginations to life.

Kerri Chandler plays Cyprus Avenue on 6 September. Admission is €22.50. See Cyprus Avenue’s Facebook page for more details.
