When it comes to change, you either get on board or get left behind. No one knows this more than MING. Flipping the script is second nature to this New Yorker. In a city with an ever-changing soundscape, MING remains versatile and adept: essentially a way of life for the producer, songwriter, remixer, DJ, and musician. In the mid-90s, he was one-half of the pioneering electronic duo MING+FS. Playing guitar, bass, keyboard, and turntables, MING toured the world and gave international audiences an introduction to electronic music, opening up for acts like Sting, RUN-DMC, and Moby. Over the last decade, MING has pulled the studio more into focus, while still keeping a hand in the touring life. He remixed singles for a star-studded lineup including Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Ellie Goulding, and Black Eyed Peas. His original tracks climbed the charts, scoring four Top 40 trap remixes on Beatport. Collaborations on singles like “Disintegration” from Le Castle Vania for deadmau5’s Mau5trap label and “King Kong” for Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records staked claim on dancefloors worldwide. MING received a Grammy nomination in 2014 for the remix of Crossfingers’ “Falling Out” (featuring Danny Losito). MING continues to break through in 2017: His globally syndicated weekly radio show, MING Presents Warmth, can be heard on Dash Radio, the Main Stage channel of dl.fm, and on Music Choice, America’s premier music and video on demand provider. His recent single, “Paralyzed,” with Andy Bianchini on Sony Brazil, quickly racked up 450k Spotify plays. He has two follow up singles on Sony slated for this fall. “Don’t Let Go” feat. Tiger Darrow (9/15) and “Honestly” feat. Bear Redell (10/6), a collaboration with Francis Davila.
