@LLEN was playing electronic dance music in Taipei even before there was a bona fide dance scene. Rightfully tagged “Godfather” of electronic dance music in this city via his “Tekno Invasion” radio show (1993), his “Hyper Hyper” club nights at Underground (1994), and his “Finally...the Party”—Taiwan's first-ever outdoor rave (1995), his impact is indisputable. Even his afternoon “Sunday Sessions” at Opium Den (1998), were the first weekly Drum 'n' Bass parties in this city. He has also written articles for magazines, published books, released albums of dance music mixes, founded a group dedicated to organizing rave parties, and worked as a radio host and an MTV program producer. @llen has been invited to DJ at events like Street Parade in Zurich and Rio Parade in Brazil in front of hundreds of thousands of people. He rubs shoulders with the global dance music elite, but keeps his sights and his sound firmly routed to the underground.
