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 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”.
Production commenced in 2004 after Ming completed his Bachelor of Science degree – purchasing expensive toys from Awave, EBay and Store DJ. Another accomplishment was studying ‘Entertainment Operations’ at William Angliss (2009) – which led to organising a few parties with mates…
His highlight gig was at Slide nightclub for Euphony on 04.09.2014 (San Francisco – USA), Ming’s first International gig – you can check it out here: https://youtu.be/JzYCgoU8ocg
Back to production in full effect – Ming’s debut release (Melbourne EP was snapped up by Modern Soul Records – Milan, Italy) in January 2015.
A record by Frankie Bones scared Ming away from DMC records (which was predominantly a House music specialist) so Ming began shopping at Hardware records and was introduced to the sounds of Techno – “and a new force was born”.
