Rick Kraft has exploded onto the Taiwan club scene with his selection of electro, house, dance, and hip-hop. Resident DJ at Club Muse, he is one of the few video DJs in Taiwan making his own video mashups. Rick's passion for music earned him spots internationally and has established a reputation for musical creativity that is not bound by genre.
This Vancouver native gathers his influences from 90's artists like Snap!, Bobby Brown, Culture Beat, Sir Mix-a-Lot, Reel 2 Real, and Digital Underground. He predicts artist's next hit singles, dropping the latest club bangers from Pitbull, Chris Brown, LMFAO, T-Pain and Far East Movement, and remix tracks from Jump Smokers, Chuckie and Afrojack. Rick predicts new trends, with euro-house inspired sets, and keeps crowds dancing with Lady Gaga, Beyonce and Katy Perry, while still versed in old school.
Rick emerged as an event DJ in '01, making mixtapes then compilation CDs. Playing events in Los Angeles and Japan, Rick became known in the early 2000s. His breakthrough came with Carnegie's; he installed the 4th Video DJ system in Taiwan, made all video media himself and was DJ 20+ hours every week. Rick's 2011 hard house mix CD landed him his residency at Club Muse. At clubs all over Taiwan, pool parties, Canada D'Eh, school events and charity galas at the Palais de Chine, Rick is the premier special event DJ.
