Mixed Live @ Neumos Seattle

Bio

Since 1996 at the age of 19, I've been DJ'ing Electronic Dance Music genres such as House, Trance, and Progressive.  My technical influences were inspired from listening and watching some of the best DJs throughout North America from the early 90's to the late.  My musical and vibe influences were inspired from my previous visits as a patron to the best nightclubs in Amsterdam, Nijmegen, Utrecht, Rotterdam, Brussels, Rome, Milan, Nice, Paris, and even Roppongi back in the early 2000's.  In 2008, I had the pleasure of visiting one of Europe’s hottest beach party destinations, Mykonos.  I also frequently visit Seoul, a city where it is not too hard to find DJ Mag's Top 100 DJs on their Asia tour.  In 2012, I finally started producing and releasing my own tracks.  Thus today, I am inspired to produce and mix tracks that are of the Global Dance sound because Electronic Dance Music spans beyond countries and differences and brings everyone together!

Love you all, love each other!

Tiger Logo

I used to be a pastor's son...  But my practice of Mindfulness has brought me back to Buddhism and Korea's sacred animal, the tiger. 

See Korean mythology origin story via the bear and tiger and tigers in Korean culture.


My given Korean name, Sang-Do is also of Buddhist origin meaning "Duality Way" which literally translates as Sang (Duality) Do (Way).


Thus, my cosmos tiger with 3rd presence eye logo is my spirit animal.  A reminder for me to always remain present to see the world the way it truly is, be grateful of what it is, and to be mindful of something greater than the temporary material world presented by the ego.


The Earth and everything about it, all once came from star dust...  So cut through the noise of the ego be it yours or others to reconnect with the universe.  To reconnect with it's nourishing divine light that is rightfully yours and for every living being.  


What if someone said to you, there is nothing wrong with you.  You did nothing wrong.  You are special.  Thank you for being YOU.  Just be.  Be free, right now.  Through music.  With me.
