Theo ‘DJ Chamber’ Cox is a man on the move. Since his August SparkJam interview he’s launched his Worldwide Remix Tour, a series of remixes representing dance music from all over (listen below), published a thoughtful and productive article on Taiwan’s Electronic Dance Music scene, booked more sets in The Philippines and he’s on the bill for Spunite’s MASAGO (馬沙溝音樂派對) beach dance massive this weekend in Tainan. All this while holding down his residency at Brickyard in Kaohsiung, kill it Chamber!

Taiwan’s Electronic Music Scene

Everything stated within this article is simply my opinion. Whether you agree or disagree, I am very interested to read your opinions in the comments.
In the three years since I first began touring in Taiwan, I have seen many positive changes in the direction the electronic music scene is taking. Slowly but surely, more and more events are choosing to play broader styles of music. A healthy music scene is one where any taste or style can be catered for. The array of live bands in the country seems comparitively much broader and more eclectic, but it feels as though the DJ scene is a little further behind.
從我三年前第一次在台灣巡迴演出到現在,我看見在電子音樂方面有非常多的進步. 雖然緩慢但是卻是很確定的就是,有越來越多派對的音樂選擇已經越來越廣泛. 所有音樂都可以被接受的音樂環境是健康的. 而樂團的取向相對來說,他們的音樂創作已經越來越大膽並獨具風格,但是DJ的部分腳步就相對的慢了點.
