Anyone who went to this year's Winter Music Conference and saw the hordes of tanned girls wearing pretty much nothing except for the essential 'I'm in Miami Bitch' t-shirt will know the monumental bunk-up that Chuckie has had onto the world stage.
"From one year to the other, suddenly you're a big deal," he laughs, admitting it surprised even him. "It's really cool to give that kind of love to a DJ who is new in house music. It felt like a massive step up not just for me, but for Dutch music in general."
A self-styled ambassador for Holland's dance scene with his Dirty Dutch event, which this year held its first outdoor event with a line-up that included David Guetta and NERD, he's taken his hip-hop skilled DJ sets everywhere from "Azerbaijan to Brazil', learning which nations lap up which sound and even dropping a dubstep set at Notting Hill Carnival.
"I'm working on two albums, a dance album and a pop album," he says with typically relentless energy and vision. "It's been so hard to get into the studio, though, this year that their release has been put back to early next year."
In the meantime, though, he's keeping on keeping on, with imminent tours around Eastern Europe. "If you want to know everything I do," he adds, ever the promoter, "then follow me on Twitter."
