Kerri 'Kaoz' Chandler (born 28 September[1]), is an electronic music producer and DJ concerning Deep house and Future house music.

Kerri's influences go back to New Jersey growing up in a family of jazz musicians. His father was a DJ and provided Kerri with a background in the origins of soul, disco and the New York Underground Sound. Accompanying his father to gigs, Kerri began playing records at the Rally Racquet Club in East Orange, New Jersey at the age of thirteen.
