Stephen Ying played live on Midem's Taiwan Beats stage in 2017. His attention-grabbing set attracted so much positive feedback that he decided to come back the next year with his DIY turntable startup, Spinbox. Following his meetings at Midem 2018, Ying signed distribution deals for Spinbox in Germany, Switzerland and Austria, which launched the product in Europe.
