Based in Vancouver, Canada’s Kevin Shiu has been at the forefront of club culture since the early ’90’s. His magic touch, keen foresight and suave mannerisms have propelled him into headliner status at clubs around the world. His signature style ranges from deep tech house through driving progressive house and remains true to the underground sound that first inspired him: a deep, moody sound with pounding percussion and a mighty hypnotic groove.
In recent years, Kevin’s career has started to spark on a global scale – both John Digweed and Tiesto have been quoted mentioning Kevin as one of their favorite opening DJ’s, and Kevin has played alongside almost every major DJ in the world.
Kevin’s former club night and residency at Focus in Vancouver propelled the night to become one of the top club nights in the city, his guests including Desyn Masiello, Luke Fair, Jimmy Van M, Chris Fortier, Paulo Mojo and Phil K. His 5 hr Journey sets are legendary and eagerly anticipated by his fans. Kevin’s talent for playing the right tracks at the right time is paying off as John Digweed, Sasha and Tiesto all request for Kevin to open for them whenever they are in Vancouver. Plus Kevin toured with the man himself, Sasha, in Asia.
Kevin’s studio works with partner John Morgan (Powerplant) have been supported by top names in the industry. Kevin’s talent is never ending. His enthusiasm and fervor thrives for good quality electronic dance music. He instills a high standard of quality and professionalism. It is his positive influence on others and his reputation as a genuine and diligent visionary that has helped put himself on the map.
if that^^ sound like a usual dj bio,
This is what I wrote-
I am a big fan of music, I spend a lot of time looking it and have been doing it for a long time. I love playing music for myself and for others.
My sound keeps changing but the feeling remains the same (always trying to tell a good story and try to give different experiences).
People always ask what kind of music I play . My answer is always good electronic music.
I have a big range of sounds, depending on where I play (small room will be good deep house to tech house, big room I play big room sound) I like to play for many hours, the longer the set time the better, for me playing 10 hours is no problem.
I love playing opening sets as it sets the tone for the night.
I also have made over 300 sets . They are always a bit different,
some deep,some housey and some full on deep techno, many are on my website for download I also have a monthly show at Friskyradio…..please tune in!
My sets are always live mixed, hope you enjoy them.
See you soon…
