DJCHAP is off to a good start. So far, he's earned the respect of one of his biggest musical influences, grown an online following from around the world, and just dropped an EP of fresh footwork tunes that has earned praise from influencers like XLR8R and Potholes in My Blog, among others. But he remains relatively unknown in his hometown. "I feel like my reach globally is much greater than it is in Denver," he says. Sometimes it's easier to get thousands of Soundcloud followers than steady local bookings.
