Gaijin, is derived from a Japanese word meaning “foreigner” or “outsider”. The word is composed of gai (outside) and jin (person), so the word can be translated literally as outside (foreign) person.” It reflects the ways he feels as he stands out amongst others in the multifaceted Malaysian society. Despite being very much of a newcomer, he is well-versed in the local electronic music scene. His first exposure to electronic music was in 7-8 years ago in the legendary clubs namely Movement and Backroom. With international DJ’s rocking the clubs week in and week out he didn’t miss any chance he could to hits the clubs.
There he was exposed to the driving beats of maestros such as Carl Cox, Richie Hawtin, Technasia, Ken Ishii, Sven Vath, Danny Tenaglia, Frankie Knuckles and the legendary duo Sasha and John Digweed just to name a few. After moving on from there, he attended various other raves and club events. Some of the most memorable ones would be the Full Moon Party in Koh Pha Ngan, Zouk Out, Global Gathering, Speedzone and many more.
This left such a deep impact within himself that created his passion to explore deeper into the magical wonder of electronic music. Why you ask? It’s because he wasn’t content with just being on the dance floor feeling the thumping basslines and the pulsating beats… Now he wanted to experience the joy of playing in front of a crowd and make them move to the grooves he brings to floor. In his quest to entertain his audience to sounds ranging from Deep House, Tribal, Tech House to Techno, he spends endless hours daily to find the perfect tracks to entertain them and leave a lasting impact.
His influences are very eclectic and diverse to say the least ranging mainly from Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso, Booka Shade, Lutzenkirchen, Format: B, Shlomi Aber and Richie Hawtin. His ultimate dream would be to play in legendary clubs such as Cocoon (Germany), Watergate (Germany), Pacha (Ibiza), and Space (Ibiza) or in a massive rave such as Creamfields (UK), Exit (Serbia), or Coachella (US). Who says dreams can’t come true? Impossible is nothing man…Till then, see you on dance floor!
