Born and raised in Singapore. DJ and producer Jean Reiki was a vinyl-collector who stumbled upon Hard Hops and Nu-Skool Breaks at the tail-end of the 90s. Her style of DJing gradually developed, resulting in a wide gamut of musical genres in her sets, and cemented her a place at London’s Point Blank’s Top Female DJs and Ones To Watch for 2012.
To date, Reiki has a quarterly mixshow residency on Lush 99.5 FM radio. She is also one-third of DatDatDat, running ad hoc nights welcoming an array of guests to crank up a heady mix of party vibes. Music curation aside, her compositions and remixes gained notable attention with her work featured in far corners of the world, from Nick Luscombe’s Late Junction playlist on BBC Radio 3, Shiso Room on FutureMusicFM, Copenhagen’s The Lake radio, Berlin’s Not Your Girlfriend show on BLM.FM, Hyper Juice show on Japan’s Block FM, Stateside’s Gizmodo and San Jose Museum of Art, producers showcase on Malaysia’s Midnight Oil to local film trailer, ‘Trash Heaven’. Other works have garnered her the 3rd spot at the Creative Destruction Contest organised by the Peranakan Museum Singapore, and nominations for the ‘Best Genre Bender’ category at the Asia music awards, VIMA.
Always exploring new terrain, she has collaborated with ethnic instrumentalists SA to herald improvisation over one another’s material in Sonic Sessions Vol.1, a live performance streaming to an online audience via Stageit platform. 2016 also sees her releasing binaural beats + 3D nature and ambient music hybrid for Brainwave Entertainment fans and a Soundart EP entitled ‘Whimsy’.
