Debbie broke out of the bedroom when she was invited as Asia’s first participant to the Red Bull Music Academy in Seattle 2005. From disco to tech house and the decades of music in between, Debbie is continuously adding new sounds as she evolves as a DJ. Her sets traverse from deep to jackin, tech, acid, soul and more, mixing sounds both old and new to represent her current place in time.
Since 2004, Debbie has played in cities such as Melbourne, Seattle (Club Contour), Berlin (Golden Gate), Amsterdam (RBMA Pop-up Radio at ADE’11), South Korea (7th World DJ Festival), Manila (NYE’05), Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur, opening for house maestros such as Osunlade, Gene Farris and Master H. In Singapore, she has played in venues such as Velvet Underground, Zouk, Ministry of Sound (Pure), The Vault and Blu Jazz.
She currently holds a weekly residency at Da Paolo Bistrobar as well as a bi-monthly guest mix on Lush 99.5FM. Debbie is also co-owner of record label and events organisation Midnight Shift, plus co-founder of the FFF Girl DJ Bootcamp – an annual all-female DJ school that began in 2008.
Singapore’s true female techno warrior has a DJ career spanning more than a decade. From her legendary driving techno sets during the heat of the local scene in the 90s at venues such as Area 22, Liquid Room and Sessions @ Zouk, AF’s sound has advanced to a bridging edge. She showcases a knowledge and respect for the depth of electronic music in all its complexity, not one to be waylaid by trend.
Reading like a United Nations rollcall, AF’s list of tours include: Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Japan, Australia, India, Mexico, USA, Holland, Austria, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Croatia, UK and Poland. Of which, Germany and in particular its electronic music mecca, Berlin, stands out as being her place of residency for 3 prominent career years from 2001-2004. With Berlin as her launch pad, AF performed at world-famous gatherings and clubs including Tresor (Berlin), Awakenings Festival (Amsterdam), Future Shock Party (Croatia) and Love Parade parties (Berlin).
From intimate club environments to 10,000-strong festivals, AF has stretched her sound across bodies and nations more than she could ever imagine.
