Chew Fu is a New York based electronic record producer, remixer and DJ, born in the Netherlands.

He is best known for his official refixes for pop artists including Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Timbaland, Mariah Carey, Far East Movement and Robyn and his distinctive style of production which features a fusion of electro house and hip hop music.

Instead of using the term remix, Chew Fu coined the term "refix" [1] because he says that his "remixes are like a completely new productions." [2] When DJ-ing Chew Fu only plays his own original productions and refixes.[1]

On where his name came from, "My crew came up with it when I was producing tracks for Bad Boy Records to describe my production process and style. Chew Fu is the sound made during and after I’ve consumed a track and spit out a hot refix." [3]

Early life[edit]

Kardolus grew up in Almere, Netherlands. He graduated with honors from the saxophone at the Utrecht Conservatory with Piet Noordijk. He is a classically trained jazz musician who holds a Masters Degree in Music.[4]

With Helmus and The Mindminders he played in 2001 at the North Sea Jazz Festival.

He moved to Brooklyn in 2001 to get a start in music. He spread his music for free on weblogs. Chew Fu got his start in the industry working for Diddy[1] and Quincy Jones's record label Qwest.[4] as well as utilizing a worldwide network of dance music bloggers.

Chew Fu began "producing hip hop with house music back in 2005, because he wanted to play it in the clubs but no-one was making it."[5] He switched to house music until it caught on in 2010 when he began to produce remixes for Lady Gaga, Timbaland, and Rihanna.
