you mean the compressed files that are smile in file size, low in audio quality that sound terrible over a clubs sound system.
Yeah heard of them, I think they play in some sort of pod like structure?[/quote]
I meant no slight by my earlier question at all. Though I’m more than a bit surprised that a number of my fellow Canadians are coming over to Taiwan to DJ. I’m from Toronto and I’ve worked most of the bigger clubs (Guvernment, Fluid, Meow, Inside, This is London, Red, Shock, 108, Atlantis, Papparrazi and Polazzo) in the uptown and downtown core as a doorman from 1997 to 2004 before I got to Taiwan.
I have to say, unfortunately, that I’m a tad embarrassed that there are so many Canadian DJs in Taiwan who I know, without a doubt, are lack luster. I’m no hater but I call’em like I hear’em.
I worked for a club as a go between that had ‘Friday Boys’ dancing for bored house wives in Taiwan at an area called The Zone. There was one dude, from Poland, who was the finest amateur DJ that I’ve ever heard - incredible style - unique - hard hittin - happy. We’d let him play between his dance sessions and after the club had closed. Amazing house/trance/break beat DJ. He’s now in London working as an orderly and is still starving to break into the scene as a top notch DJ. Go figure? He worked parties back in Krakow (sp?) and other festivals yet It’s too damned bad that he didn’t have the connections to work Luxy or other establishments. He was well worth it. Well worth it…
There’s like what? 5 to 6 guys in Taiwan, Taipei City trying to live it up and moon light as a DJ after teaching kindie? sigh…I wish them well and I hope they get better. If only the locals knew. Goes to show you that you can be mediocre and still make some coin from Asia.
Good luck and all the best!
