Residents of Taipei rejoiced last year as the doors of Studio 9 opened November, gracing the city with a top-quality, spacious music venue. This year it celebrates its first anniversary with a two-day blowout on Friday, November 11 and Saturday, November 12, 2022.
Fitting for the festivities, organisers have invited one of their favourite artists, Romanian DJ/producer Mihai Pol; their first international booking in more than two years.
The venue will be divided into two sections; within Studio 9 itself and its terrace space which will be accessible on the second day.
Kicking off the event on Friday will be an all-local line-up of choice techno DJs Migo, Mr.Chino, Jamie Q, Jon Connor and Tzi.
Celebrations will continue on Saturday with Pol’s groovy Rominimal house set headlining in the Studio 9 space alongside Klosing, Koliseum, and MiniJay. For those wanting to frolic on the terrace, you’ll be accompanied by performances from DZRT FRST, Escalade, Henree and Sean Kuo.

Studio 9 boasts a Martin Audio sound system used for serenading dancers with high quality sound. Leaning towards a more colourful, modern art vibe for its interior design and decorations, the space becomes a refreshing getaway from your typical underground venue, but definitely no less exciting especially with its visual art installations.
The one-year-old club is located on the ninth floor of a shopping and entertainment complex and has quickly gained reputation as a hotspot for all things related to underground dance music.
