DJ Wèi Wáng 味王
味王Wèi Wáng means “king of taste.” It’s also the brand name of a MSG that can be found on the racks of 7/11s in Taiwan.
DJ Wèi Wáng is a writer/DJ/noise artist/event organizer based in Taipei. She started DJing in the early 2000s and transitioned into noise in 2018. She is behind the label politicalNOIZE, which seeks to use electronic music to give voice to the oppressed, and has released an album under that label titled No. 40, Section 2, Daguan Rd under the alias PCkid. She is also the brainchild of the series event NOIZE DJ Mahōjin, a sound system jam in which two pairs of amps are placed against each other; one controlled by a DJ and the other controlled by a noise artist. She is also founder and editor of the Chinese/English bilingual party literature zine I Had a Dream Last Night, which focuses on stories that happened in parties in Taiwan. As a writer, she has written for publications such as Subconscious Restaurant and Entering Tone on the noise and art scene in Taipei. Her own noise involves stealing audio from everyday life and turning them into minimalist compositions with DJ software.
