Gayle San

Gayle San

Gayle Sans career already began in the early 90´s in her hometown Singapore. She started as a warmup DJ for Bands such as Kool and the Gang Earth Wind and Fire and the Commodores,in the "Top Ten Club" which was the club of that moment on the island.

Leaving her native Singapore in 1993, to pursue her dj career in the UK, nobody expected such a massive success for Gayle in the music business. Gayle's first steps into the London clubs were via DJing at record company parties, various one-off guest spots and fashion shows.

These slots soon led to Gayle being resident at 'Reach for the Sky' at London's Limelight club, where she played alongside global DJs which Gayle describes as "the steepest learning curve possible".
Having honed her DJing skills and broadened her understanding of music, Gayle began to experiment with the harder side of dance music, particularly the lesser known techno sounds coming to Britain from Europe and the US at that time. Her chance to pioneer this music in England came when Gayle became resident at Universe's legendary Final Frontier club, at Club U.K. in south London, which then moved on to become Universe Voyager at their new club, the Complex in north London.
She was also resident at all the Tribal Gatherings Festivals. Final frontier was widely regarded as one of the best club nights in the world, it was not long before Gayle had amassed a following of techno pilgrims who would make journeys from as far as Edinburgh to hear her play. Gayle's reputation of her 3 decks mixing skills and dj sets spread like wildfire over the techno centres of Europe, most notably a residency once a month at the legendary Omen club in Frankfurt, the socalled 'Mecca of techno'.

Other European and American dates have included some of the most popular clubs in the world, as well as playing at high profile parties for Prince, Chaka Khan and Kylie Minogue.

Soon with Technomusic spreading all over the world, Gayles Gigs lead her to Countries such as USA, Southamerica, China, Japan and Russia.

In 2000 she was voted number 6. of the most popular international DJs in Germany in the GROOVE Magazine. In regards to the massive competition of the worlds DJs,and to be the only female dj in the top ten, it was an honour of her hard work in the last years.
Over the years DJing has naturally led to various studio work and successfully running her own vinyl label Equator from 1998 till 2005.

Gayle has developed a sound that takes the intelligent beats of the underground, funky/hard/groove techno sound mixed with her very own style. Gayle loves producing on her own but also enjoys collaborations with other producers such as Cari Lekebusch, Jam el Mar, Bryan Zentz, Jay Denham just to name a few.

In Fall 2011 it was time for Gayle to start her own new label "GSR" (gayle san recordings).

The first kick off release is a compilation featuring tracks from Tony Rohr, Ken Ishii, Cristian Varela, Go Hiyama, Mark Morris, A.Paul, Virgil Enzinger and of course two of her own productions on the compilation.
