Justin and Zen, is a Malaysia based DJ, songwriting, and producer duo. They met back in 2015 through their mutual passion for writing and producing music. With both coming from vastly different musical backgrounds, they managed to find a middle ground and infuse both of their knowledge and experiences to further express their creativity.
After graduating from Monash University with a degree in Accounting and Finance, Justin finds himself roaming in the world of economics as a tax consultant at PriceWaterhouseCoopers Malaysia. It wasn’t soon after that he realized his passion for music. Justin decided to immerse himself towards his calling, pursuing music production full time and together with his teammate Zen; they formed Spuds – a DJ / music producer team. As a producer, mixing, and mastering engineer, he is instrumental in the rapid growth and development of Spuds into one of the best EDM acts in the region. Justin’s previous experience in auditing and corporate finance has provided MFMF with a valuable set of expertise in terms of financial planning and analysis.
Growing up in Kuala Terengganu, Malaysia, Zen graduated from The University of Nottingham with a degree in Civil Engineering. 5 years working in the construction industry, Zen has gained much experience in the project development scene. Alike his teammate Justin, Zen decided to end his corporate life and ventured into making music full time as ½ of Spuds. He now finds himself with his true calling in music making, being very involved in producing, composing, and songwriting. His background in classical piano and music theory has proven invaluable to the music making process in MFMF. Every single song Spuds have put out has been gaining more traction than ever in the local and international scene, making the duo even more motivated to explore further in the field they are in now.
