Raised on a diverse sonic diet, Jeff Hinson (aka Bite-Size Buddha) has carried this broad love of musical styles and forms from his native NYC to a variety of spaces across China - from backwater bars to huge festivals and Beijing's best performance venues.
Winning the award for Best Beijing Based DJ in 2013 (City Weekend), it has been Bite-Size Buddha's versatility and dynamic performance aesthetic that has led to his success, in party, lounge and commercial settings. He remains sought after for festivals and events, while holding down residencies at the freshest underground venues in Beijing - Migas and Haze.
Additionally, his professionalism and ability to fuse genres have allowed him to play with a wide range of heavyweight DJs (Derrick Carter, Boys Noize, Quantic, Felix Da Housecat, Derrick May, Jesse Rose, Steve Aoki, Oliver $, Adrian Sherwood, Peter Hook, Tittsworth, Zombie Disco Squad, The Magician, Round Table Knights, Aeroplane, Mike Simonetti), as well as keeping him in demand for a variety of corporate events (Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, Land Rover, etc.), fashion events (Versace, Estée Lauder, Izzue, Michael Kors, among others), sporting events (Red Bull, Nike, NBA, Adidas, Skullcandy) and parties/music festivals (Beyonce's official Beijing after-party, both The Beijinger 2011 Restaurant and Bar & Club Awards, Intro Electronic Music Festival 2011 & 2013, Modern Sky Music Festival 2011, Strawberry Music Festival 2012 and 2013).
Jeff is also a founding member and the head of Funk Fever, a group formed in early 2009, dedicated to bringing quality Funk, Soul, Disco and Classic Hip Hop to Beijing and China. Their monthly parties continue to lay the foundation for solid musical diversity in the capital city, hosting huge crowds and garnering them City Weekend's Award for Best Promoter of 2012 and 2013.
