Chinese by race, Malaysian by nationality and German by name. I came to Melbourne in the mid 90’s and pretty much never went home. A first generation skateboarder from Malaysia who ended up traveling and competing around the world on in-line skates. Maybe a case of the wrong place at the right time?

The discovery of rave parties lead to the accumulation of music which turned into spinning records at underground parties for a few years. Not content on looking for regular gigs around town, I found 3 other like minded souls and we established the now retired Beats Working Crew. Specializing in breaks and building a resume filled with gigs at every major and minor breaks party in the state of Victoria, we threw almost 100 parties in 5 years and established a solid fan base as well as made lots of good friends.

These days I can be found at weekly residencies around town playing marathon sets of commercial party jams to Melbourne’s general populous. You can also find me at the odd techno//electro/breaks parties and also at annual gatherings like the Rainbow Serpent Festival. My love is for tech, but I tend to specialize in fun commercial stuff – blending the old with the new. I might not be your cup of tea, but I have learnt to please the majority. If you have to label the sound that I do, it would be called “POP WITH A TWIST”.

I also have a sickening love for the sneaker culture. Yes you read right. Some people obsess over cars or jewellery, I go nuts over sneakers. Have been for the last 20 years and I think I always will be. Working for Sneaker Freaker Magazine during the week does not help my cause.
