All Music Guide:
Born in Chicago, though he has Detroit connections with Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson, Chez Damier's productions actually lean closer to the classic sound of New York garage. He began DJing and producing in the late '80s, mixing alongside Frankie Knuckles and May, and co-writing tracks for Inner City. A high-profile series of EPs for Balance during 1997 got him signed to the French label Distance that year, renewing Damier's name on the ever-growing garage scene.
