ROOTS
Aldrin is the most internationally prominent Asian DJ who hails from Singapore. His musical career actually started when he was 14 when he began fiddling with the music equipment his brother stored at their home, learning by himself how to play the turntables. His professional DJ career began in 1996, five years after he flew around the world as a flight attendant for Singapore Airlines. It was one lucky night when his friend got him a desirable slot to play at Zouk in Singapore, leading him to land on a job offer right after the set.

WHERE YOU MIGHT HAVE HEARD HIM

Aldrin was the only Asian to be featured as DJ of the Month, dubbed as ‘a contender for best new DJ’ on UK’s Muzik magazine in 2000. In 2002, he became the first Asian DJ to be on the cover of Muzik, with credit for mixing the magazine’s ‘most on-form CD’. He was also referred to as ‘Asia’s #1 DJ to catch in Ibiza’ by the same magazine, and was also nominated for Best New Comer on Ibiza DJ Awards in 2004. Aldrin had been the musical ambassador of Singapore’s Zouk for over a decade, but left the infamous club in 2007 to focus on his music production. He now runs his own One with Music digital label which he started back in 2008. Additionally, he has also spread his vibes, playing at gigs all over Asia, Europe and North America, as well as at distinguished clubs including London’s Ministry of Sound, Ibiza’s Pacha, New York’s Ceilo, Tokyo’s Womb and Seoul’s Ellui.
NOTABLE TRACKS
His releases on international imprints have all received rave reviews, and were charted by big guns like Carl Cox, John Digweed, Pete Tong, Paul Oakenfold, Laurent Garnier, Trentemoller and Stacey Pullen. His debut production titled “Lettitla’s Dream” was featured by Digweed on his Kiss 100 FM show. His remix on Electrico’s “Love in New Wave” was championed by Pete Tong, receiving a high airplay on his BBC Radio 1 show.
WHY SEE HIM
Aldrin has consistently thrilled crowds of thousands with his flawless, genre bending sets. See how he pumps that crowd at Jenja on May 21.
