Biography

There are several groups/artists named (The) Chosen Few.

1: An american group comprised of Cold Showda, Charles “Chop” Cooper and Unjust.

2: Dutch DJ Chosen Few.

The youth of François Prijt is turbulent. He grew up in the South East of Amsterdam some call it the ghetto of Amsterdam and in the year 1984 he makes knowledge with electro music and graffiti which blew over from America.
This kind of music and the graffiti was very important for the rest of his music career.

After his parents bought a Commodore 64 for him, he began making music. After a while he bought a Amiga 500 inspired through what others with this device can produce, he was fully surrendered in the music. In the beginning, this was mainly hip hop and breakbeat and drum & bass.
In 1989, he bought his Technics SL1200 turn tables, and after two months of practice he had the art of the mixing in his hands.

At the end of 1991 François began playing hardcore, and became a resident DJ in a small club on the Amsterdam red light district. On this he builds up a large multitude fans, and from that moment it goes fast.

In 1993 together with DJ Dano and The Prophet he got his first booking outside of Holland to Austria, the bookings streamed in.

Hardcore and Gabber freaks globally pay homage to the name chosen few playing events such as Mayday in Berlin, 7 times at Mayhem and Enchanted in Australia, thunderdome 1994 at Utrecht and 15 years of thunderdome 2008
