When it comes to change, you either get on board or get left behind. No one knows this more than MING. Flipping the script is second nature to this New Yorker. In a city with an ever-changing soundscape, MING remains versatile and adept – essentially a way of life for the producer, songwriter, remixer, DJ, and musician.
In the mid-90s, he was one-half of the pioneering electronic duo MING+FS. Playing guitar, bass, keyboard, and turntables, MING toured the world and gave international audiences an introduction to the American electronic music scene, opening up for acts such as Sting, RUN-DMC, and Moby while rocking huge festivals including Coachella, Jam Cruise, and Jazz Fest. Only the fewest musicians find success in the music business, let alone the ten-year run that MING+FS achieved, but that was only part one in MING’s extraordinary career.
Over the last decade, MING has sharpened his studio skills, taking a break from touring life to focus on production. He remixed singles for a star-studded lineup including Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Ellie Goulding, and Black Eyed Peas. His original tracks climbed the charts, scoring four Top 40 remixes on Beatport. Collaborations on singles like “Disintegration” from Le Castle Vania for deadmau5’s Mau5trap label and “King Kong” for Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records staked claim on dancefloors worldwide. MING also received a Grammy nomination in 2014 for the remix of Crossfingers’ “Falling Out” (featuring Danny Losito).
His singles, “Paralyzed” and “Honestly,” on Sony Brazil, have jointly racked up 2.5M Spotify plays. MING’s latest dance floor hit, “Underground Sound,” has been riding the Beatport tech house charts for a remarkable six-week run. With the dancefloor in the crosshairs, MING is back on stage playing shows with EDX, Croatia Squad, and more through his Crustnation/Hornblower Cruises NYC residency. In 2019, this veteran DJ is hitting the clubs and dancefloor with relentless vigor and a release schedule that rivals DJs half his age.
