DJ Kajan Chow is already rocking the decks for more than ten years now, but at the tender age of ten, he already tried to play a CD on a turntable. Over the years as DJ Saturn, this talent changed into precise, innovative DJ skills. As teenager, Kajan developed his deejay craft by watching DMC championships, while learning from his early performances in local bars and disco's.
In 2010, his remixes were found back on Suntree Records (Amsterdam), with two well-received remixes. Now available on Bounce House Recordings, the release of 'End of Season' is his first original work with strong touches of deep house.
The house bug entered the ears around 1999. One could say his repetoire is based on house music with strong signatures from New York, Chicago and Berlin: his deejay sets are fueled with contagious deep house grooves, jazz rhythms and disco/funk influenced tech house. At the same time, he could easily perform lounge, down- and midtempo electronic music. An unique strength of Kajan in the recent years, is his ability to work fluently with live-artists and musicians.
From the beginning, his attempt was to create a strong vision in his sets. Kajan was voted Â´Best DJÂ´ during the Amsterdam Student Festival (2006) and also won Hooikoorts (2005), while he performed as finalist in the Diepstraten Dance Award (2004). During this time (2000 -2005), he was a regular guest for Asian parties throughout the Netherlands, Belgium and the UK.
Inevitably Kajan Chow has been encouraged and motivated by icons from the industry. Internationally, his talents took him to famous places and events, including Ministry of Sound and Pacha (London), Shiva Lounge (Shanghai), Culture Club and Stereo Sushi (Belgium), Miami Winter Music Conference (US), Nabu / Shock (Bulgaria) and Amsterdam Dance Event.
Touring throughout the Netherlands in the past decade, has built him an extensive record of service; playing festivals like Groove to Chill / Scheldepop.. Tearing up established clubs such as Catwalk, Ekko, Melkweg, Nighttown, Now & Wow, Mezz, Monza, Ms. Stubnitz, Sugarfactory, Supperclub, and Powerzone, to name a few.. Setting the right atmosphere in restaurants including Pure C, Parc, Rain, Zussen.. And bringing the right vibes to the beach, Eigenwijs at Karavaan, Natural High at Caroussel/Puur, Moio Beach, Nu Even Deephouse at Beachhouse, Groove to Chill Summer Sessions,.. and many more upper- and underground nights for Bumpin' Chicago, Jazz-A-Delic, Soulfully Yours, Moodclub, Rebelbass vs Full Spectrum..
