I've been travelling on my own for the past 23 years to many different countries in search of places to play Techno to the masses and i often find great Obstacles like no venues or venues controlled only by their own locals who are controlling their own dj line ups and events. Its just so prejudice, so embarrassing to discover that the world of electronic music covers this aspect in terms of holding their market only to their own kind.

To give things a bit more light, i'll go straight right into my own Country - Singapore.
Singapore is a money making port. The majority of people who came to Singapore during the British Occupation was the Chinese. The Malays where the real Inhabitants of this tiny Island way before the British Colonized. The Malays however did nothing to protect their land which was actually one together with Malaysia.
When the British left after 1823, Singapore had 4 Races. Chinese being the majority. Singapore’s modern history began in the early nineteenth century, when Stamford Raffles, a British administrator based in Java, chose to develop the island as a trading post for the East India Company. It was one of three cities which later formed a wealthy British colony known as the Straits Settlements (the others were Melaka—which is not far from Kuala Lumpur—and Penang, an island just off Malaysia’s north-west coast). Singapore’s colonial governors encouraged workers to migrate from Britain’s colonies in South Asia; they also welcomed ethnic-Chinese traders and laborers who moved from mainland China and from across South-East Asia, and who eventually formed the island’s largest single ethnic group Singapore joined the federation in 1963, which from then on was called Malaysia. But the arrangement was short-lived. Singaporean politicians chafed at provisions written into Malaysia’s constitution which granted the federation’s ethnic-Malay majority special privileges. Malaysian leaders, for their part, felt that Singapore’s predominantly Chinese populace threatened their country’s Malay heritage, and feared the new state would suck wealth from the mainland. These tensions probably contributed to race riots in Singapore in 1964, which left dozens dead. In August 1965 Malaysia’s parliament voted to expel Singapore from the federation. It was with tears, not joy, that Mr Lee announced the island’s independence.
Despite its unusual birth—and perhaps because of it—Singapore has become enormously successful. By investing in its port, now one of the world’s busiest, the government capitalised on Singapore’s strategic location at the entrance to the Strait of Malacca. To make up for its lack of other natural resources, the country opened its doors to foreign businesses, which brought skills and riches (today about 30% of Singapore’s 5.5m inhabitants are on temporary work permits).

So As For Me, Being a Dj to Play Techno is so difficult because the majority of people (Chinese) Opened up night clubs playing tunes of top 40's, Euro Trash Techno and Trance and EDM. If you didn't play what they wanted, you would not get a gig.
For the love of non commercial electronic music i ventured out to the first Country - England; London and i had not one place i was given a chance to perform. I stayed in London for 1 year and then left with my first rejection as a foreigner looked upon as a Indian, a Pakistani or some guy from Punjab. No one actually even wanted to take the time to get to know me, listen to my cds or mini disc of my dj demo sets. I gave out 100s and not one call or email came back. When i had left London to head back to Singapore because i was still under the military reservist rule, i had received an email saying that i was not accepted because England had more Djs looking for gig work then any other type of occupation. Schools in England had more students wanting to be djs more than anything else.

With this situation, i decided to move back in Singapore to startup and setup my own events and parties. Unfortunately, i had only friends turning up and me losing nearly $25,000 in over a year period of trying to cultivate a techno tech house underground electronic music scene.

I decided to venture out and find me that place, that country that sapce where i can be happy, be able to perform and have a free form expression without pride or prejudice, without racism or judgmental behaviours from any of the locals. The Second Place; Thailand- Koh Samui. I tried my best to get into clubs and bars to show them my profile, website and handing out demo cds. The island was beautiful, the people where strange. The concept of music policy in the island was the same throughout anywhere in asia - radio pop and euro trash. I was thrown into prison as a setup just to rob me of my money and my valuable self I had acquired during the 1 year I lived in Koh Phangan. I was sent to 3 years in Prison and banned for life to Thailand all for the sake of music.

I left to Australia in 2003 Aug and was doing ok in the start but after that I was robbed there twice. 
Lost all my DJ Gear. Was treated with full racism.The Aussies are 98% Racists with Asians. Left that down under land and moved on to China.
Was doing well for the first 6 months then was setup by another DJ from Belgium to attack me, rob me and kick me out of my DJ work for The sake of Jealousy that I was getting paid more than him.

HongKong was like Singapore very hard to find a good spot to play good Tunes and get paid.

Moved on to Germany - Stuttgart, Frankfurt, Munich, Swinefurt, Ludizburg, Nunnenburg and played only Once at Buddha Bar ; Racism is everywhere present especially when
u look
indian with a Brown Skin.

Next Stop Was Ibiza played once at the Bora Bora Beach Club. 
Didnt have a stable Job to maintain the high expenses in Ibiza and left.
Next Stop Vancouver played once at a trashy Bar with a few friends and that was that.
America played once and not a chance given to at any good venues. The closest I played was in Art Basel Wynwood.
Currently I am in Cambodia and have been here for 6 months.4 months in Sihnaoukville and 2 months in Koh Rong Djing but Unfortunately Sihanoukville has no more tourism .Otres is gone. Finito. Koh Rong is a dead Island with very few tourism.

I’m looking for Fundings to open up my own Miniature Club/Bar with your kind Donations. The amount I’m looking to Raise is $100,000.
All those who have donated a substantial amount will be allocated a substantial share in the business. Free mixes and videos will be also given out.
Please Hear my Voice and give generously.
Thank you for your Kind Support!
