SINGAPORE - Local spinmeister Aldrin Quek embraces technology.
As one who has been at the forefront of Asia's dance music scene for the past decade and who travels the world to spin his sets, he would need more than a few gadgets while on tour.
The 42-year-old veteran club DJ told The New Paper: "Not only is playing live more convenient (with my gadgets), it's also faster and more precise.
"Over the years, I've progressed from vinyl (records) to CDs, and now a lot of my music is digitised."

This is Quek's most precious possession. It contains all his music - a whopping 182 GB worth, clocking in at over 53days of playing time.
He said: "It's amazing how all my music fits into something that's palm-sized.
"It accept both FireWire and USB 3.0 connections, so all my music is at my fingertips and ready to go at a moment's notice.
"I'll never know if my MacBook will crash - touch wood! - and it's great to have my music backed up and easily accessible."

The gleaming Apple laptop is Quek's weapon of bass destruction, boasting 8GB of 1333 MHz RAM.
He said: "I use the Time Machine backup utility, which is a breeze to use.
"The Faderfox also has its controls mapped to (music software) Traktor Pro on my MacBook, which is wonderful for syncing music.
"I use the Faderfox primarily for smaller places like house parties, because it's more compact and easier to fit in a corner."
