Jia Wang aka Master Wong (MW) was born and raised on the Pacific Island of GUAM. It is an Island where Electronic Dance Music (EDM) had no presence nor influence during his early years growing up as a kid. Despite his late entry in to the scene, MW has made it his goal in life to push the Sound of House & EDM back to the Pacific region where Dance Music Culture is not widely accepted compared to the rest of the World (For more details go to www.facebook.com/electricislandfestival). Currently MW is the only House DJ from GUAM with consistent gigs in the Mainland U.S. representing that Island vibe and laid-back culture wherever he goes.
