Mark Chadwick, better known by his stage name, Chad Jackson, is an English DJ, remixer and record producer. He is best known for his hit single "Hear the Drummer (Get Wicked)", but he also created member only mixes for the Disco Mix Club (DMC).
He won the DMC World Championships competition in 1987. His career started in 1990, with his debut single "Freedom to Party (Construction Mix)", which failed to chart. However, his second single "Hear the Drummer (Get Wicked)", which consisted of samples, was a hit, peaking at number 1 on the UK Dance Chart and number 3 on the UK Singles Chart. It was based on "900 Number" by the 45 King, which has also been the theme music for BBC Radio 1's dance music show The Big Beat.
Jackson now teaches music production skills at Academy of Contemporary Music. Since July 2012, he has been co-hosting an electronic music radio show on Kane FM, with his long-time friend and musical accomplice, Professor Stretch.
