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.
Since her first club appearance in Phuture (Zouk) and her debut promo mixset entitled Equlibrium 001: Dawn of Breaks, she has moved beyond the club circuit, reaching the heights of a quarterly mix show residency on the now defunct national radio, Lush 99.5 FM and private not-for- profit underground free party series, Under The Bridge.
Music curation aside, her compositions and remixes gained notable attention with her work featured in far corners of the world, from Vietnam’s Doing It The Pho Girls Mix, Nick Luscombe’s Late Junction playlist on BBC Radio 3, The Shiso Room on FutureMusic FM, Southampton’s Beyond Control on on Voice FM 103.9, 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.
Other production work has garnered her the 3rd spot at the Creative Destruction Contest organised by the Peranakan Museum, commissioned music work for Brilliant Corners : Bukit Merah Diaries, Chinese Poetry recitations at The Art House and nominations for the ‘Best Genre Bender’ category at the Asia music awards, VIMA.
With the pandemic transforming the scale of live events, she is no stranger to the DIY ethos of live-streaming. Under the Moon Lounge umbrella, she curated tunes, visuals and hosted chatroom for her followers during the height of lockdown. Always exploring new terrains, she has played at Ecstatic Dance events, where she collaborated with brain food hippies to infuse free form movement and healing in a judgment-free space. As a techno shamen, her soundscape meditation eventsare sonically designed to enliven the senses while calming the soul of the attendees.
Jean is a Singaporean Workshop leader for Hi-Viz Satellites 2022.
