    Yellatee spent loads of his teen period on hiphop music. Born in the super innocent county of Nantou, Taiwan, there wasn’t any rap music or culture there apart from record shops. His first album that blew him away was Old school rap 3 mixed by DJ Grandmaster Flash. The raw texture of the beats makes him spend years to find Technics Turntables and vintage grooves. In 2012, he moved to London to study, and got inspired by multi-cultural music there. Since then, his DJ genre has been altered to various styles, and embraces all kinds of genres whether its new or old.

    DJ @llen

    @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.
