Ultra Korea Underground Stage Korean headliner, previous head DJ at Ellui (the largest club in Asia) and Mute; and currently resident DJ at Club Vurt.
Originally from Seoul, Korea, is recently best known as the founder of Korea’s first techno label 'ECI Korea' who had a successful international debut at Miami WMC 2010 as Korea’s best electronic musician and is fast becoming known in Asian techno/tech house circles as one of top producers and DJs to watch.
Unjin has been exposing the new domestic and international talents to the world through his label ECI Korea and taking part in laying a foundation in Korean techno culture as a key role. Also he has been touring the world including Ministry of Sound in UK, Zouk in Singapore, Womb and Air in Japan, Sullivan Room in New York, Spybar in Chicago, Time in Manila℅ Pop in Germany, Champs Libres in France, Ultra Japan, Ultra Korea, Global Gathering Korea, World DJ Festival and involved in various parties and festivals in Korea.
Also Unjin is well known as his abstract ambient live performance project Rainjacket. Released the first Rainjacket full length album in 2001 under Sinusoidal Records in Vancouver, Canada which was introduced by CBC Brave New Wave as British Columbia’s best electronica album in 2001. As Rainjacket, he performed live at CITR 101.9 fm in Vancouver as a regular guest artist, also collaborated with Lab[AU] Belgium new media group and also performed for Sonar in Korea in
Unjin's reputation for pushing the musical boundaries of Seoul's relatively young underground music scene began back in 1995 as one of the first Korean underground indie musicians. Ever
since he has been developing his unique sound with deep and bouncy rhythm layered with abstract and atmospheric synths. Today, he is surely one of the most independent, versatile, and
inspiring DJs in Korea.
Al Burro – Bio
The Burro is equally at home toiling in industrial warehouses as he is lazing in ambient fields. A firm believer in variations on a common theme: It's about the mood not the genre.
You can usually find the Burro at Korner in Taipei doing what he likes doing.
Al Burro (London) first got interested in electronica back in 1994 when he first heard Jeff Mills’ Transmission 1. Drawn to the futuristic soundscape, he and a friend bought their first set of belt-driven decks back in 1995 and this began a longstanding affair with techno.
After annoying the neighbours for a couple of years, they decided to branch out and start annoying people at private parties and smaller venues, and annoy them they did. But, with practice and time came a more well-rounded sound; after which, he took a 5-year sabbatical from DJing and took his turn on the dance floors around the world.
When next Al stopped travelling long enough to make owning musical equipment logistically possible, Al discovered a more mature sound.
The Detroit Soul and Motown roots remained, but added to this was a drive for a more worldly sound and an appreciation of other forms of music including jazz, hip hop, swing, house and too many more to mention. Al cites as some of his influences: Gilles Peterson, Ninja Tunes, Mr Scruff, DJ Food, Jurassic 5, Radiohead, Jeff Mills, Dave Clarke, Derrick May, UR and the list goes on.
