7. DJ Victor Trixter aka Victor Chan
Here’s a very meaningful excerpt MalaysianStudent.com editorial team found from his personal website: http://www.iamvictorchan.com
“I am defined by being who I am, and not what the world expects of one who churns out snazzy music at fancy clubs. Music is very much a part of my life and is a passionate journey involving the many milestones of my existence.
This richness is combined, spiced up and translated into hi-energy yet delightful vibes to provide excitement and complement the ambiance fitting of hip clubs worthy of their existence. But my spinning environment does not dictate my living preferences; for I abstain from smokes, booze and lead a very healthy life – I choose not to be a consequence of my environment, but rather the master of my destiny.”
