Michael Ng is a locally bred DJ, focusing on deep, progressive and melodic techno. His first exposure to dance music came in 2007 when he heard Underworld's classic "Born Slippy" blasted from his friend's car. And that's where his passion and journey into underground electronic music began.
After a brief encounter with breakbeat, his taste switched to electro house and later expanded to progressive DJs like John Digweed and Guy J. Michael developed his DJing skills by digesting the podcasts from Digweed, Hernan Cattaneo, and other up and coming DJs as far as South America, like Marcelo Vasami. He learned and practiced after absorbing the vast amount of popular and lesser known live sets and recordings.
His other major influence came from Ernest Lo, a veteran DJ and producer in Hong Kong. His skills in programming and advanced DJ techniques matured under the guidance of Ernest with great results.
In 2011, he felt ready to share his passion with the crowd, and began his presence in the underground club scene in Hong Kong. You can find Michael dropping hypnotic sonic grooves in places like Basement, Love Da Cafe, oma and so on. In May 2014, he was invited by the Macau Dance Music Association to do a guest spot in the "Affection 004" club night in Macau. He also contributed a podcast to the "Frisky Love China" show by Frisky Radio. These are testaments to Michael’s ever rising popularity.
Meanwhile, he has established a Hong Kong DJ collective named “Groove Delight” with Ernest and Robbie Chan. Their aims, apart from promoting fresh new talents to the thriving local scene, are also to channel the most beautiful grooves to the hearts and feet of clubbers, and to help the dance community grow healthily.
