Jonathan Liao, aka DJ Binkun, was born in California, raised in Taiwan. Since an early age, he was exposed to classical music. In 2000, while studying for his Music Technology degree at New York University, Jonathan began developing his love for Trance, House, Techno, and other forms of electronic music. In 2004, he then moved to England to study Sound & Vibration, and starting his professional career as an acoustic engineer in London. However, during this time, Jonathan always made sure to come back to his home in Taiwan, often featuring as a guest DJ at many of the clubs and music festivals across the island.
In 2010, Jonathan moved back to Taiwan to start his own business. He co-founded Audio 6 Ltd., and is the distributor for legendary British loudspeaker brand Funktion One. Over time, Jonathan began working behind-the-scenes, installing speakers at many of the hottest nightclubs in Taipei and Kaohsiung, or engineering the live sound at electronic music events. Then in 2016, Jonathan decided to flip his 9 to 5 night time schedule to the day time, and co-founded FutureWard Coworking Space at a 500-ping location in Taipei City. To date, he is well-known as one of the key supporters of Taiwan’s startup ecosystem. This year, at Meet Taipei 2020, come see Jonathan aka DJ Binkun at the Opening Night Party as the two sides of music and startup entrepreneurship meet for the first time!
