DJ BETH YEN

Beth Yen – a Sydney resident whose musical roots lie in the tough, underground Northern England scenes of Manchester and Leeds. Instructed by the incredible musical heritage of the area like the immortalised-on-film Factory Records juggernaut, to the scene-shaping early electronica of 808 State and A Guy Called Gerald, as well us unique indie artists as beloved as Lamb and Mr Scruff, Beth Yen knows good music.

Beth was playing records, real vinyl records, long before the CDJ revolution and the stench of the grossly overpaid, vacuous celebrity DJ wafted over the dance music industry – Beth played those records in clubs, bars and lounge rooms anytime she had the chance. After landing in Sydney in 2008 she was invited onto the decks at all the best parties: from underground tech house bunkers with finely tuned PAs, to exclusive harbour cruise events, to the most glamorous of the city’s main rooms, playing the precursor records to that big vocal EDM sound that holds the entire United States captive right now. You’ve caught Beth’s sets at her incredibly long- running residency at Oxford Street’s infamous Colombian Hotel, the Mardi Gras after-party playing to crowds in excess of 25 000, the palace of inner city opulence- The Ivy and of course Sydney’s off again, on again Hed Kandi series of events.

You’ve heard Beth dropping cuts in Ibiza, at superclubs like Pacha and Space. Just this year Beth widened her lens and jetted into South East Asia to rock the booths of clubs like Palladium in Manila, Lucky 13 in Singapore and The Sky Garden in Bali. Beth has shared line-ups with the biggest dance music names in the world including Carl Cox, Mark Ronson, Avicii and Victorian heroes Dirty South. Her corporate client list is peppered with names like Hermes and Palazzo Versace.

What you need NOT do is mistake Beth Yen for one of the current crop of high heeled, celebrity dating, press play on my pre-mixed set, pouting impersonators... Beth Yen is a REAL DJ. And she’s got the skills to get the most fickle, heard-it-all- before crowds moving, just try her.
