Eugene’s passion for dance and electronica music was borne in London England, whilst studying Fine Art at the Central St Martins School of Art & Design. It was during this period that Eugene developed his turntable skills, after being exposed to the numerous underground sounds of dub, speed garage, hardcore house, techno and drum & bass in a variety of locations in and around London, ranging from small clubs to super clubs. Having resided in London for over eight (8) years from 1989 – 1997, Eugene was fortunate enough to experience the growth & fracturing of the UK dance scene, first hand. With the initial birth of the pirate radio stations in London and the underground railway parties, right through to the current super clubs and one-off events, it was clear that Eugene was captivated by the whole concept of the dance and club culture. It was not long before artists such as The Orb, Mr.C, Carl Cox, Richie Hawtin, Grooverider, Sasha, LTJ Bukem and Andy Weatherall became major influences for Eugene’s musical palette. Returning to Malaysia after obtaining his Bachelor of Arts degree, Eugene formed Tempo Events Sdn Bhd with like-minded and top local DJ’s who felt the need to create a dance scene right here in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He has since been committed to contributing his efforts as a DJ, promoter and event organiser with Tempo, showcasing cutting-edge DJ’s, artists and events. In June 2002, Tempo created a Malaysian dance brand, REGENERATETM. Now coming Into Its 4th year, Regenerate has proved to be a tremendous hit, attracting thousands of loyal followers. Not only Is Regenerate a showcase for local and International artistes, It serves as a viable platform from which up-and-coming DJ’s can gain recognition. Needless to say he has since played virtually every Regenerate. Eugene’s involvement in the organising of numerous warehouse and outdoor parties, including the creation and conceptualization of Movement (2000-2001) and Carbon Club (2001-2002) over the past six (6) years, has tremendously helped shape our current local dance scene, which now boasts international status. While continuously evolving as a DJ, Eugene’s mixing style is a smooth and seamless effort, often riding the line between funky & electro house / techno and deep house. Skewed towards the more underground artists and labels, Eugene indulges in funky and uplifting grooves, with synthesised and percussive sounds, working the effects / FX to create his own unique vibe. A keen interest and talent in break beats & drum & bass also sees Eugene play exclusive one-off parties that cater to the niche of breaks headz in Kuala Lumpur. Arguably Malaysia’s first proper drum & bass DJ. Eugene’s most notable drum & bass sets was at the KLue Urbanscapes Arts festival in 2003, where the crowd was body surfing to his tunes. Despite being a club/outdoor DJ, Eugene was called onto play for exclusive fashion events like MIFA (Palace of the Golden Horses), CNN Fashion (Avenue K), Seed Shows & ‘BELLE’ Launch Party (Atmosphere). Currently, he is in discussion with Louis Vuitton to DJ for their summer shows 2007 both locally & regionally. His most memorable sets include playing alongside; “Renaissance World Tour” feat. Timo Mass, Plastikman’s Live Tour 2001, Future KUL feat. Freq Nasty, DJ Courtney, DJ G -Flame, Osmosis feat. Jun Kitamura, Regenerate Red Countdown feat. Josh Wink. The highlight for 2004 would definitely be playing alongside DJ’s; Timo Maas, Fergie (BBC Radio 1) & Ashley Casselle at the Regenerate Red Zone party, which had a turn out of over 6000 people. Other Regenerate Red Zone event’s Include the Sepang Go-Kart circuit, which attracted 8000 clubbers. The Carls UV tour has seen Eugene playing gigs In KL, taking his sounds further afield to JB & Penang. Another notable accomplishment for this KL DJ, was a mention in the Global Clubbing Issue of ‘Muzik’ magazine in July 2000, for ‘Best Resident DJ’ (alongside Ben Katana & Gabriel) and ‘Best Club’ (Movement Club) in Kuala Lumpur.
