If you like dance music, you would have loved the music by DJ Charles Feelgood Friday night at Rich’s. Funky, Jazzy, House music. I used to have a picture of Charles wearing an Enjoymusic Enjoylife shirt. I need to find it.

Legendary for his role in the birth of the electronic music scene in the Baltimore/Washington DC area, Charles Feelgood has built a reputation as a DJ in the international dance community through his ingenious remix skills and a dynamic brand of funky disco,electro,techno and hard house.
“I used to stay up late listening to my dad play records and decided that was what I wanted to do,” says Feelgood. His first foray into the world of dance music was in the 80′s, throwing small scale parties under the name “House of Fields”. From Depeche Mode to Aretha Franklin dance mixes – the music was very eclectic at the parties and you can hear that range of genres in Charles’s sets today.
Constantly in demand all over the world for his ability to light up dance floors with his sets of funk, acid and electro drenched house, Feelgood has received numerous accolades in his fifteen-year career. These include being named Baltimore’s Best DJ several years, and being included in Bpm magazines top 100 Dj’s several years running.Playing gigs from as far away as Russia for the Audi Car Company to working the crowd at 2007′s Cochella Festival-Charles will be busy behind the decks for the rest of the 2008 year!
Feelgood notes “I definitely try and take the listeners on a musical journey – I like to start out slow and funky and push for a harder ending, a continuous rise”.
“I’m far from a purist,” he adds. “I incorporate many styles into a single set. I play everything from disco-influenced house to acapella tracks and tech house, and I especially love bootlegs and electro influenced tracks”.
The consummated dance floor rocker, Feelgood sums up his musical mission in one sentence: “I just want to do what the name implies, to make people have a good time and go home with a great feeling”.
