About Chase the Compass

Co-owned by two music journalists with a passion for underground talent, Chase The Compass is a blog, events and management collective based in London. Born out of humble origins and only in its second year, Charlotte Cijffers [Digital/News Editor, DJ Mag] and Jamie Ferguson [Daily Mirror] have grown their beloved brand into a family operation, helped out by editor and producer extraordinaire, Declan McGlynn [Holmes Price, Point Blank, Resident Advisor] and DJ/radio host Frank McWeeny [French Toast, DJ Mag Radio].

When they’re not crafting words for their website, the CTC team are busy hosting disco and house-drenched parties in the UK capital and beyond, from New York to Sydney via Barcelona and Dublin. London residencies include the Queen Of Hoxton and The Magic Roundabout in Shoreditch, plus sporadic dates at XOYO, Brixton Jamm, Night Tales, Nomad, Forge & Co and more. Jamie Ferguson heads up CTC’s management and events wing with Young Franco [Kitsune, Of Leisure] and French Toast currently on the books, as well as an ongoing collaboration with boutique travel operators, Beats Travel, aptly titled Chase The Beat.

Chase The Compass is also backed up by a strong and loyal wing of freelance writers, bloggers, managers, DJs, bookers, friends, producers, promoters and party-goers, who devote their time and expertise to the CTC vision. If you’d like to get involved with any aspect of CTC’s world, simply say hi:
