MING VONG’S BIOGRAPHY aka CHOSEN aka Ming One
Ming was born on the 12th October 1980 in Melbourne and fell in love with Electronic Music @ the tender age of 14.
In the suburb of Prahran (1996), Ming became a 12” vinyl junkie, shopping at DMC records and Octave records.
During 1998 (Last year of Secondary school) Ming completed the DMC DJ Introductory course under the tutelage of Phil K – whom introduced Ming to the sounds of New School Breakbeat and encouraged him to drop tracks with vocals (e.g. Francesco Farfa – Touch).
A record by Frankie Bones scared Ming away from DMC records (which was predominantly a House music specialist) so Ming began shopping at Hardware records and was introduced to the sounds of Techno – “and a new force was born”.
Ming started partying at raves and clubs, and after seeing Jeff Mills 12.12.1998 – life changed (Slacker – Psychout Thing).
At Welcome 2000 (NYE 1999) Ming was christened as the ‘Chosen One’ by CJ Bolland – “You are Techno, You are Techno…”
Production commenced in 2004 after Ming completed his Bachelor of Science degree – purchasing expensive toys from Awave, EBay and Store DJ. Another accomplishment was studying ‘Entertainment Operations’ at William Angliss (2009) – which led to organizing a few parties with mates…
His highlight gig was at Slide nightclub for Euphony on 04.09.2014 (San Francisco – USA), Ming’s first International gig – you can check it out here:
Back to production in full effect – Ming’s debut release (Melbourne EP was snapped up by Modern Soul Records – Milan, Italy) in January 2015!
With Clan Analogue – Ming has stood the test of time and has been nominated as Treasurer. He has been featured on two Clan compilation EPs: Analogue Redux and Mobile Strategies!
But unfortunately Ming cannot see the foreseeable future – but would love to perform overseas as a representative – travelling the world globally DJing and playing Live… Let’s hope Ming’s Addiction EP (2021) goes viral…
