Ming Vong aka DJ Chosen hails from Melbourne – Australia’s Mecca of Electronic Music. He was introduced to the Underground Local sounds in 1994 by his Year 8 Camp Leader “Andrew Dawson” in the suburb of Prahran. In 1996, Ming became a Vinyl Junkie at DMC, Hardware and Octave Records.
During the final year at High School (1998), Ming completed the DMC DJ Course, under the guidance of Ivan Gough and Phil K, and began partying at nightclubs and raves, scoring his first pair of Technics SL-1200 MK2s and a 2-channel mixer. On Saturday the 13th December in 1998, Ming’s life changed forever after witnessing his favourite Techno DJ “Jeff Mills” in action. He was christened as ‘The Chosen One” by CJ Bolland at a 1999 NYE party called ‘Welcome 2000”.
After Ming completed his Bachelor of Science degree in 2004, he became an electronic music producer, collecting a vast array of software and hardware to build his studio. In 2009 he completed “Entertainment Operations” at William Angliss, purchased his first pair of Pioneer CDJ-1000 MK3s and embraced the Digital Download revolution.
A typical DJ Chosen set is kind of a mixed bag, ranging from Deep House, Minimal, Nu-Skool Breakbeat, Electro, Techno, Uplifting Trance to Psychedelic Trance. Recently he has been DJing digitally using Traktor software, dj controllers, effects units and a sampler to spice things up.
Currently his focus is to assemble a live act, crack into the US market on his trip to San Francisco and to revive the Renaissance clubbing brand in the UK.
