Techno whiz, house head and influential tastemaker are well-deserved titles Victor G has rightfully earned in his electronic dance music career. With a thriving run spanning closing in on two decades, KL’s favourite deck maestro has definitely paid his dues.
From turning the wheels of steel at Bangsar’s infamous The White Room in 1999 to spinning his way to the trendiest spots today including Elysium Bar & Terrace, Victor G proves time and time again why he is still one of the most sought after DJs in the country. His method of madness is simple; keeping true to his savvy style consistently.
Victor G’s career build up earned him several accolades along the way. In 2003, he participated and won the top spot at Heineken Juice Magazine DJ Quest competition. He then bagged another trophy by winning the 2004 Vestax Extravaganza DJ competition mixing category and the Pioneer Digital DJ Battle 2004 and 2005 championship and the Pioneer Digital DJ Battle Asian championship 2006.
After years of slaving over the decks all over the city, Victor G hit his career peak with a residency at Euphoria by Ministry of Sound in Sunway. While the club’s role in our scene was short lived, he moved on to bigger and better gigs scoring bookings from across the shore including Japan, South Korea, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore and Australia.
His versatility on the decks makes him a firm favourite when it comes to serving tasty appetisers to international heroes like Claude von Stroke, Hot Since 82 and Joris Voorn to name a few. Victor G has also shared the decks with legends like Underworld at the F1 Fuel Concert in Singapore F1 and Basement Jaxx’s debut in Kuala Lumpur. His festival friendly vibes has also landed him spots at Bali’s Soundrise Festival, Future Music Festival Asia and It’s The Ship.
Victor G marches on to keep the scene alive despite the lack of commercial appeal for the house and techno scene. With a strong sense of belief for the music he loves, his motivation stems from the very idea that there still is a scene to be a part of. Grateful and humbled with a strong following for his individual style, he keeps the torch burning for his passion.
While entertaining is an obvious goal, educating the audience is an element that he cannot dismiss. Victor G continues to school his audience at various spots around town spewing out tantalising techno at underground events, dishing out hot house tunes at the trendiest night spots and experimenting with his version of chilled out vibes that blend soul and funk while keeping his signature groove intact.
