Dj PaperChase, was born Chase Cradit, in Las Vegas, Nevada on October 31st 1985. With his first days of life he was already rocking in his bassonette to the beat, as he is the grandson of the famous Las Vegas big band conductor and jazz musician Rod Cradit, who performed all over Las Vegas and Hollywood during their golden years. Chase’s early exposure to the smooth jazz sound along with his percussion training he received as boy helped develop the smooth, rhythmic, and vivatious style he has now become known for playing on the decks.
Dj PaperChase has become known for his consistency in performing well at any venue, and is sure to turn any party into a memorable affair. Chase has been mentored by some of the best Dj’s in the industry, having taught him all about building suspense and creating dramatic bass drops through the use of sound effects. Chase enjoys all genres of music and uses ideas from many of them in his remixes and sets.
