  • One of Asia's biggest DJ export to date, Aldrin has been championing his genre-bending sounds through his signature ONE nights at Zouk in Singapore, and guest spots all over the globe, including Pacha, Space & DC10 in Ibiza, Turnmills and The Cross in..
    One of Asia’s internationally prominent DJ, Aldrin has been at the forefront of Asia’s dance music scene, flying the Singapore flag throughout the four corners of the world, garnering acclaim at every stop from press, punters and fellow DJs alike. Over the last two decades, he has been a musical ambassador to the infamous Zouk Club in Singapore – while running his very own digital label – OneWithMusic, amidst a barrage of remixes and releases on other international labels. Aldrin’s global profile is bolstered by the reputation he commands on home turf, clinching the Best DJ vote again at the I-S Magazine Readers' Choice Awards 2013, and cited by British dance music magazine Muzik as “One of the world’s finest residents”. Having played a crucial role in building up the vibrant dance scene in Singapore, Aldrin continues to pack out his headline night “ONE with Aldrin” with faithful fans. Prior to this, Aldrin’s plaudit list was already nothing short of impressive, starting the millennium as the only Asian to be featured as DJ of the Month and being named “a contender for Best New DJ” in UK’s Dance Magazine Muzik. Following that, he became the first Asian DJ to appear on the cover of Muzik, with credit for mixing the magazine’s “most on-form” covermount CD. Thereafter, Aldrin was invited to do a 2-hour guest mix for Pete Tong’s world-renowned Essential Mix radio show, making him the only South East Asian to be featured on the show. All these, along with superstar DJ Danny Tenaglia singling him out as his Future DJ Hero in DJ Mag’s Top 100 poll, has propelled Aldrin onto the international platform. Consistently thrilling crowds of thousands with his flawless, versatile sets, Aldrin has taken his sound all over Asia, Europe, and North America, to top clubs such as Pacha in Ibiza, London’s Ministry Of Sound, Ceilo i n New York, Tokyo's Womb, and Seoul's Ellui. Aldrin was also nominated as “Best New Comer” for the Ibiza DJ Awards in 2004, while Muzik Magazine referred him as Asia’s NUMBER ONE DJ to catch in Ibiza, where he continues his presence every summer. In the studio, Aldrin’s productions a n d r e m i x e s have not gone unnoticed. Releases on international imprints like Renaissance, Great Stuff, Ware , Baroque, System Recordings, and his own OneWithMusic imprint, have all received rave reviews, and were charted and playlisted by topdogs like Carl Cox, John Digweed, Pete Tong, Paul Oakenfold, Laurent Garnier, Trentemoller, Stacey Pullen, to name but a few. Not one to rest on his laurels, Aldrin has also dabbled in Theatre, performing a 2-night sold- out concert with local heroes the T'ang Quartet, and was also commissioned to be the Music Arranger for Singapore's National Day Parade (NDP2013). Refusing to follow the mainstream commercial herd, 2014 saw Aldrin continuing his quest to maintain some quality music in the Singapore club scene via his “ONE with Aldrin” brand, favouring a Deep House/ Tech House/ Techno playlist. Apart from relaunching his ONE night at the current hot spot Kyo, the 2nd half of 2014 also saw him play headline sets at Koh Phangan's Jungle Experience, Full Steam Ahead at Singapore's Tanjong Beach Club, the Freq'ender Festival, and the massive ZoukOut. Concurrently, Aldrin has also been championing a Nu Disco/ Indie Dance soundtrack through his much sought-after sets on local radio Lush 99.5FM, and via the Singapore Island Culture Club (SICC) parties at Kyo , the DISCO:VERY nights at Zouk's Velvet Underground, plus various intimate venues around the region.
