Hello party rockers!

If Germany has papa Sven Vath, then we have papa Victor G!
We’ve heard 4 beautiful music stories from the Malaysia based Meliha, Obadius, Otherkind and Terence C.

About Victor G
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 over 15 years in the local scene, KL’s favourite deck maestro has definitely paid his dues.
From early beginnings of turning the wheels of steel at Bangsar’s favorite haunt, The White Room in 1999 to spinning his way to the trendiest spots today including Nagaba KL and the Blue Elephant, Victor G proves time and time again why he is still one of the most sought after DJ’s in the city. The secret to his longevity is simple; keeping true to his preferred style at a consistent pace.
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.
Victor G’s career continued to soar with a landed residency in Rootz. Playing the role as event promoter and DJ at the same time under OMP Entertainment, they revolutionized the house music scene with their weekly themed night. His reputation led him to become Twenty One Kitchen + Bar’s favorite spinmaster. A venue that required him to fulfill the needs of the masses while keeping true to his roots of house and techno, Victor G’s apt ability to create versatility provided that perfect balance.
With a stellar reputation under his belt, the dynamic DJ has been a favorite when it comes to providing tasty appetizers 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 legendary acts including Underworld’s F1 Fuel Concert in Singapore F1 and Basement Jaxx’s debut here 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.
A true blue soldier in the dance music spectrum, 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, Victor G keeps the torch alive for the sake of 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 tantalizing 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.
