Chester DJ films latest music video on streets of the city

Get Up and Dance video includes footage of the Eastgate Clock and the Grosvenor Hotel

Chester DJ and musician Chris Beale has filmed his latest music video around the streets of Chester.

The Get Up & Dance video, which includes footage of the Eastgate Clock and the Grosvenor Hotel, was only released on YouTube on October 4 but already looks like it will hit 10,000 views in the first few days.

Chris, 29, who lives in Broughton gained national recognition for his music in 2014, when BBC Introducing supported his track Thinking Out Loud.

He's produced an album and several singles including Going My Own Way released on Immoral Records. The Vocal Bass House track reached and stayed at the top 15 charts on Beatport and Juno for three months over summer 2015.

DJ and musician Chris Beale

Chris now has a weekly residency at Rosies Nightclub where he plays every Thursday night. This gives him the opportunity to further develop as a musician and influence the Chester music culture on a major scale.

He also performs for the monthly Ministry of Sound tours in Chester and continues to reside at Mashup Events, for the ninth year.

Chris said: "Anyone who knows me will know that I live for Chester's music culture and am proud to have stuck by it when there was nothing five years ago. So to now be a key part of a new era, and our now vibrant music scene, is a dream come true.

"It just felt almost expected of me to do the video. As the track took two years to complete I really wanted to make a big impact. Within 24 hours of publishing the track/video, it is easy to see it was a brilliant idea. And has really put the city on the map too.

"I'd like to take the opportunity to thank Rosies for giving me the platform to influence Chester music on a major scale."

Chris Beale's film was made by Birch Michael of Birch FX. For further information visit: mashupchester.wixsite.com/chrisbealeportfolio
