Thoughts Become Things:

 

Dr Foo believes that every living being on this planet is interconnected to the universe. Music serves a higher purpose of awakening that connection to your true self, which is connected to greater forces in the universe at your disposal. Music not only heals you, but brings you to a realisation that your thoughts can help shape a better world. To facilitate this connection, you need to Go Deep to find yourself; Go Dark to see your light; Go Progressive towards your calling -> more elaboration of this mantra under ‘Spirituality’.

My Past, Present and Future:

 

Deep basslines, Ethnic percussion and samples, Mystical mantras and chants, Spiritually charged Progressive, Psychill, Trance & Techno, Electronica, Ambient and World music – These are unmistakable elements of what has become known as the Dr Foo sound. Allow the doctor to prescribe the musical pills needed for your journey towards higher consciousness, self-understanding across new cultures and connection to the cosmic source.

Sek Sheng, also known as ‘Dr Foo’, is a DJ who plays consciously driven electronic and world music. He believes that every living being on this planet is interconnected to the universe, and sound and music can serve a higher purpose of healing and awakening that divine connection and oneness with all. Dr Foo’s sounds interlace deep progressive, house & trance with ethnic / cross cultural elements ranging from nature sounds, flutes, tablas, handpans, Tibetan singing bowls to beautiful sacred mantras. He is a doctor who prescribes aural medication in the form of hypnotic grooves that heal, and melodies that penetrate deep into being with higher vibrations. While he has been DJing professionally for the past 7 years across different clubs and events in Australia & Singapore, a spiritual awakening and realisation of society’s unsustainable ways of living in recent years has changed Dr Foo’s musical output to one that carries the intention of service to humanity, earth and all living beings. Dr Foo’s most recent gigs include Conscious/ Ecstatic Dance events where he plays a full spectrum of music that facilitates healing, meditation and energy release in participants, as well as setting light and fun vibes for Outdoor, Yoga and Social Enterprise related events.

‘Progressive’ is a term often branded about when we speak about genres, but it implies instead a mindset of openness towards all genres that fit the vibe in the journey. Renowned for his emphasis on smooth extended sets that portray a Progressive storyline across genres, Dr Foo inputs many of his own Asian style ethnic edits and carefully selected musical pills that serve to alleviate mundanity and elevate deeper consciousness. Well-honed in the art of journey creation, Dr Foo is comfortable playing in the earliest warmup hours, right up to peak times of various events. Adding to this, Dr Foo’s spiritual awakening has seen him inculcate more World instruments, mantras and consciousness based sounds into his sets, with a firm believe that music can bridge one’s understanding with the universe, new and ancient cultures, as well as invoking personal healing.

 

Past

In 2011, at the height of the commercialisation of trance music, the Dr Foo sound and identity was born. Galvanised by Markus Schulz’s original Coldharbour sound, and DJing in Melbourne’s underground, Dr Foo found his soul in the deep ethereal and ethnic elements across Progressive, Trance & Techno. With further inspiration provided by luminaries such as Sasha, Guy J & J00F, Dr Foo is driven to bring back the sacred art of Progression and spiritual elevation in electronic music, as showcased in his ‘Prognosis’ podcasts and live sets in gigs across Singapore’s club space and spiritual community.

 

Dr Foo’s versatility and passionate identity has seen him host the regular ‘Deep End’ sessions at The Spiffy Dapper & Zsofi’s Tapas Bar, spin at established venues in Singapore such as Home Club, Canvas, Avalon, Azzurra and Blu Jaz Cafe while also dabbling in a live electronic Arabic EDM fusion performance at Marina Bay Sands. Dr Foo has also opened for legends such as Solarstone, Indecent Noise & Max Graham, and is part of the rising trance duo Hypnotic Visage.

 

Present & Future

With the intention of his music focused on upliftment of human consciousness and oneness in diversity whilst staying rooted in the honest depths of our imperfections, Dr Foo seeks to curate aural journeys for conscious and spiritual gigs/purposes. Dr Foo is also working on production, and has a few tracks in the works focused on his progressive roots and healing intention. He is keen to collaborate and learn from like-minded souls on this journey :)
