Wei-Shen is fast becoming one of Australia’s most respected house DJs having developed a cult following and seduced crowds throughout Asia. On top of having played at packed Full Moon parties on the frenetic beaches of Ko-Pha-Ngan and exclusive underground parties in Asia, he has also graced the decks at some of Asia’s most renowned clubbing venues. To name a few, Zouk (Kuala Lumpur), Dragon-i (Hong Kong), Q Bar (Bangkok), La Fabrique (Tokyo), Mint Club (Shanghai), Fabrique (Shanghai), Centro 360 (Singapore), Twelve SI (Kuala Lumpur), Embassy (Manila), Luna (Kuala Lumpur), KM8 (Singapore) and Mint Bar (Koh Samui).
Back in his beloved hometown of Melbourne, Wei-Shen’s stature continues to blossom as he holds weekly residencies at Famous, Ourtime, The Saint, Veludos and Robarta. On top of commanding the dance floors of some of our most notorious events such as Two Tribes, Gods Kitchen, We Love and Ministry of Sound, Wei-Shen has showcased his talents at some of Australia’s finest clubbing establishments including Kink (Sydney), Sounds on Sundays (Sydney) and Sapphire (Perth). Wei-Shen often hosts guest shows on the dedicated dance radio station Kiss FM, and broadcasts a fortnightly radio show on www.ssradiouk.com and www.pulseradio.net both of which are regarded as Europe’s and Australasia’s premier house music online radio stations with a combined audience in the millions.
Wei-Shen is renowned for his interactive style and never fails to deliver an infectious performance. Resisting the popular trend towards electronica, Wei-Shen plays his unique brand of belearic house music as his sets infuse afrocentric percussion, Latin rhythms, a dash of electro, dirty disco and a huge dose of funk. This must be recipe for success as he has supported international giants including Frankie Knuckles, Boris Dlugosh, Lee Cabrera, David Guetta, DJ Disciple, Full Intention, Sandy Rivera and DJ Gregory amongst many others. On top of having DJed at various Melbourne Fashion Week and Spring Racing Carnival events since 2002, he has played at some ultra-sexy private parties including for Paris Hilton, Jackie Chan and Elite Model Management and for fashion houses such as Karl Langerfeld, Gucci, Agnis B and Alannah Hill. Most recently, he was invited to DJ at the official 2006 Commonwealth Games after-parties.
Wei-Shen has also added music production to his repertoire. Joined by long time friend Maarcos, they had instant success with their first release being a remix of Inaya Day’s “Nasty Girl” (Vinyl Pusher Records) which landed at #1 on the Australian Aria Club Charts and received international acclaim. With the inclusion of a third member Atridge, these boys are now producing under the moniker “Those Usual Suspects” and recently remixed The Similou “All This Love” for Ministry of Sound which sat at #1 of the Australian Club Charts for 5 weeks running and was included in Ministry of Sound’s “Housexy” 2006 Compilation mixed by Alan Thompson. They are also currently working relentlessly on a number of solo releases and remixes. Watch this space.
