Real Name:
Nicholas Bracegirdle
Profile:
Chicane is the most famous alias for British songwriter and producer Nick Bracegirdle. He first attracted attention along with Leo Elstob as the duo, Disco Citizens, with the UK Top 40 hit "Right Here Right Now" in 1995. They continued to work together as Disco Citizens and remixed their own track "Offshore", which had been released under their Chicane guise as their second release Offshore Ep #1. Whereas the original version of "Offshore" was an ambient track, the more dance floor friendly remix by Disco Citizens gave them huge commercial success and entered the UK Singles Chart at number 14 in December, 1996.

Elstob later departed but Bracegirdle continued as a solo artist and later enlisted Clannad's Maire Brennan for a remake of their 1982 hit "Theme From Harry's Game" under the title "Saltwater", which reached the UK Top 10 and became an international hit. In March, 2000, "Don't Give Up" featuring Bryan Adams, finally gave Bracegirdle a number 1 hit in his native country. To date, Chicane has scored 11 UK Top 40 singles with five of those being with featured artists.
