Stereometa, SMU’s Disc-Jockey (DJ) club , is quickly becoming one of the most exciting tertiary DJ collectives in the nightlife industry. They have helmed the decks at top clubs such as Cherry Discotheque, Wan and GetJuiced, and performed laudably at national DJ competitions such as Sentosa DJ spin-off and Live Mix Maestro. Stereometa explores music without bounds, and members are encouraged to express themselves through whatever genre of music that they like, be it house, trance, hip hop, or even classical. Look out for where Stereometa pops up next, it might just be at your favourite nightlife spot!
Date, venue and timing of regular meetings / trainings per week:
"Stereometa is a great avenue for people to learn about DJ-ing and make new friends! Stereometa has really broadened my perspective of the local DJ-ing scene. Providing me with opportunities that I could've only dreamt of and allow me to develop my passion for DJ-ing." - Omer, Finance Director, School of Computing and Information Systems
Q1: Do I need prior experience to join the CCA?
A1: No, you do not! Most of our members did not have any prior experience before joining SMU Stereometa. Our training will groom you into a better DJ to participate in gigs and competitions as well.
Q2: Do you get paid from gigs?
A2: Yes, we do! From club gigs and events partners
Q3: Where do you spin for gigs and practice?
A3: Our practices will be held in our studio located at Lee Kong Chian School of Business. For gigs it depends on who our partners are for 2020/21. In 2019/20 we partnered with clubs such as Cherry, WAN, Get-Juiced as well as CCAs and events from SMU.
Q4: Do I need to purchase your own equipment?
A4: No, you do not! SMU Stereometa has club worthy setups in our studio consisting of CDJs and turntables. Getting your own equipment, such as a controller, is encouraged but not necessary. In fact, Stereometa has enough equipment for you to borrow and practice at home.
Q5: Will I get to learn about production?
A5: Yes, you will! Production will eventually be taught by our trainers and masterclasses where we invite external DJs down to share their wisdom. Notable DJs who have conducted masterclasses would be DJ Ezra Hazard and The Infamous.
In 2019, “Party101”, our end of the year party broke Cherry Discotheque’s record for most number of guests.
In 2019, SMU Stereometa DJs “Kong” and “Ayekay” participated in the Live Mix Maestro competition, clinching 1st runner up and 3rd runner up respectively.
In 2019, SMU Stereometa DJs “Kong” and “Evis” participated in the Sentosa Spin Off and made it to the Semi-finals. A huge feat especially since “Evis” only started DJ-ing 4 months before the competition.
In 2020, despite the COVID-19 restrictions, SMU Stereometa held its own mixtape competition and several of the members’ mixtapes received public recognition and had more than 2000 replays on SoundCloud.
