DJ Big Kid


Asian DJ star & Producer Big Kid has cemented his international DJ status with massive gigs not just throughout the Asian continent in cities like Taipei, Beijing, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Shanghai, Guangzhou and his native Singapore but also worldwide playing to eager audiences in cities like San Francisco, Honolulu, Sydney, Zurich and Los Angeles. He has achieved the rare accomplishment of being one of a small handful of Asian DJs who have successfully crossed over into the American circuit event arena.

In 2014, Big Kid made the move to Los Angeles to capitalize on gigging opportunities. He has since spun for Gay Massive 1Life Music Festival as part of a stellar line up of the world’s best DJs. He is also a staple in the LA circuit scene, for the award winning afterhours party, Reflex, Primetime & Momentum parties and for DJ Paulo’s Tribal Bitch party for NYE 2015. He is also a regular fixture in San Francisco having headlined at, Chaos, Underworld, Shangrila & most recently Evolution. Parties outside of California, include Jungle and Xion Afterhours in Atlanta, Fly nightclub in Toronto, GayGlow (Nvrland) in Chicago, and others.
Big Kid is known for his "Big Room Big Party" sound, banging out skillful sets that blend hard-hitting and sexy tribal and tech house. He has been called "one of the hottest names on the global circuit" by CircuitCadence.com. Singapore's I-S Magazine crowned him "one of the biggest names in the local party circuit", and San Francisco's Gloss Magazine described Big Kid as an "extraordinary deejay producer [that] has painted Asia deep red with his unique house music and deejay styling."

Industry heavyweights such as DJ Paulo has also endorsed this talented star saying, "Big Kid is a DJ you WANT to hear". LA's DJ Alexander also adds, "Big Kid needs no introduction as his work is great and he's a built a name for himself!"

In 2015, Big Kid’s Official Remixes for JimiJames “DropDatBitch” (No. 39 on Billboard Dance Club Songs) and Sonomad feat. January Thompson “Beautiful People” (Prismtone Records) (Most Added Billboard Dance Club Play Songs) were very well received. Most recently, his remix for British breakout star, Philip George, peaked at No. 4 on Billboard Dance Club Play Songs and No. 10 on Shazam US Dance Chart for the worldwide dance smash, “Wish You Were Mine” (Motown Records).
