The TropicLab collective was conceptualized over a rum cocktail on a beach somewhere in Singapore sometime in early 2013, born from the love of house music, good vibes and the desire to create something unique for good friends of James and Haan. Today, through experience and time that bond that drives their energetic sets is more apparent than ever.
The musical direction of the collective has always been house focussed, and the combined individual styles of the two cover anything from early Progressive thru Techno. The friendship that is the backbone of TropicLab translates into a 2 DJ
performance that is fun, technical and spritied: back to back fast mixing energetic sets
TropicLab have enjoyed residencies at top underground clubs such as Kilo and Kyo in Singapore, and continue to play exclusive gigs extensively in Asia. The collective also have European dates lined up for 2017.
Drawing influences from years of crate digging and following artists like Maceo Plex, Redshape and KiNK, the duo are also currently working on their own track productions which regularly feature in their sets.
Born and raised in Singapore, music has always played a huge part in Erwin’s Life. He picked up learning the drums in 2003 and was playing shows with his band all over Singapore. Over the years, things took an evolving turn when he started having the love for House and Techno. Realising his passion for DJ-ing in 2012, he started playing at private house parties and at small bars. Following his love for underground electronic music and being ready to tackle the big leagues, he joined the Bitrates Asia Team on their expedition in 2014.
Having the gift to infuse cross-genre spinning styles and techniques, he is daring and bold in his music selection and a definite crowd pleaser. Overseas, he has made his mark in Koh Phangan, Thailand, also known as the home of the Original Full Moon Party acquiring a residency at SandCastle Beach Club and Peace&Love bar. He has since been travelling in and out of Singapore performing shows alongside many international industry heavyweights all over South East Asia, and will be travelling Europe playing shows in Summer 2017. Erwin has also graced the decks of renowned clubs such as Avalon Singapore, Canvas Singapore, Millian Singapore, Zouk KL and also at one of the biggest festivals in Thailand, The Jungle Experience Festival. In the recent months he has also started exploring the deep abyss of the production world.
