There is no genre or particular style of music that is totally banned from Winkskillz’s collection. While perfecting his skills as a DJ he’s learned that quality is the deciding factor, and bringing in the unexpected elements that can create a truly unique sound. It’s this kind of eclectic attitude (and of course raw talent) that has got Winkskillz to where he is today, one of Malaysia’s up and coming DJs with both a local, and international following.
His style of music is a diverse mix of underground house, deep/funky/electro house, electronica, progressive and trance, and if you like to kick back, you will not be disappointed by his sophisticated brand of soulful feel. Winkskillz’smusical journey started back in the 90’s disco era. It was while listening to disco, funk, and soul that his all consuming passion was ignited, and he discovered DJs from Ministry Of Sound and Various Artist, geniuses that remain his icons to this day. With the introduction of funky/progressive house/trance in the 90’s he found himself on a different vibe. Entranced by group DJs from Ministry Of Sound, he began to expand his musical horizons. But it was in the 90’s that his real trip began.
Based in the Malaysia (from Northern to be precise) he had the privilege of being friends with an elite underground party DJ set, and he was able to listen, watch and learn from the masters. In the spring of ’96 DJ Winkskillz became a name when he organized his major dance party in various discotheque. It was here that the boundaries of euro/tech house music were exploded by the magic of Various Artist/DJs. Returning to Penang in 2000 (with a whole lot of experience and even more enthusiasm) Winkskillz realized the need for a serious underground movement that could keep the party people happy without infringing on the rigid restrictions imposed by the local clubs. (Ask any of the Penang Island/Mainlane clubbers and you’ll get a gleeful response that the scene has never been quite the same.)
Aside from keeping the locals firmly on the dance floors, Winkskillz has shared his skills with audiences further abroad. Side of inference himself was done Audio Engineering at Penang Hits Recording Studio (http://wwww.hitsrecording.com.my). In year 2006 he had his first gigs at Star Cruise the largest Anniversary in Penang, Malaysia. Not surprisingly he gave them what they needed, and was immediately asked back to perform another gig in May 2007 call Electro Essence.
DJ Winkskillz it’s not just the highest international standards, and superb taste and flair that he brings to a room that makes him an excellent choice for any dancefloor, it’s once again the simple fact that there are no limits as to what he will do to create thegreater musical experience.
