ABOUT ME : Born by his mother. Chad is one of Vancouvers original house divas…..ummmm …..DJ’s for a long time. He’s been around the block and then some appearing in venues locally over the years gaining him recognition of having a sexy house sound playing deep,vocal,tech to tribal you can say his beat is always fresh never frozen.
::self taught, Quest ventured to New York in ’89’ where he got his hands on his first set of technics 1200 turntables. (yes he played vinyl back in the day)
Influenced by the underground house sound : tracks like Can you Party/ Royal house, Bango/Todd Terry, Move your Body/ Frankie Knuckles and You used to hold me/Ralphi Rosario to name a few, fueled his passion of becoming a DJ. His first gig was in ’91’ @ The twilight zone night club where he played to an empty room but he got to hear his music loud!! After that he gained stardom becoming resident at some legendary houses in Vancouver: Church on Sundays at Graceland, The original World after hours, Shaggy Horse, The Odyssey, Celebrities, Mars, the original Gay Ski week and a whole lotta after-hour ravin underground parties across the city.
In the height of acid house, technotronic, drum and bass : Quest stayed true to the vinyl days of house, it wasn’t until the latter he switched up the beat putting his turntables to rest (but not forgotten) and started in the cd digital age if spinning.
Continuing his Quest for sound , he partnered with Martini and the famous TROUBLE T Dance became an annual Pride event which still reins as a must do every pride, now in its 11th year with Big Roger events. In the midst of Vancouvers no where to go phase Quest began the Saturday night ritual at Club 560 an epic night of sight and sound playing along some true legends Frankie Knuckles,Peter Rauhoffer, Lee Harris & Paulo,
now truly missed as one of the best dance clubs to bless our city.
Currently one of 1181’s original resident dj’s since the bar first opened he holds residency @ Rhythm Room Fridays.
