Gilly Gonzales ()
Gilly Gonzales, the no. 1 Dj of Surinam started his musical career when he left the Caribbean and moved to Amsterdam. At age 15 he was inspired by his uncle’s Dj career and he soon started playing at local party’s with vinyl. After many private party’s he made his entrance in the Amsterdam club scene performing as Dj Gilly. He took Dj-ing to the next level after winning an international Dj contest representing Suriname and started to perform throughout Europe and the Caribbean. During this period he was featured in many line-ups with Dj Chuckie and the Partysquad, the “new generation” of Dj’s. His Caribbean roots made him a one of a kind Dj, always playing different styles of music in his sets such as: r&b, hip-hop, bubbling, dancehall, soca, reggaeton, latin & 2 step. While performing in a high-class nightclub in The Hague the local event promoter noticed his fast skills and gave him a nickname: Gilly Gonzales. A new Dj was born! Always playing high energetic sets made him a familiar face in Europe’s most important clubs. The fact that he’s also a Mc makes his shows unique, the crowd never knows what they’re about to expect. When decided to focus on the Caribbean he left Amsterdam and went back to his homeland Suriname where he soon would be the most famous Dj of the country, performing at the most popular clubs / events and having weekly appearances on radio and TV. A wise decision, he’s been touring the Caribbean ever since. (end page 1) In April 2013 he was asked to accompany Fatman Scoop during his show in Suriname. Without a doubt he said yes and they put on one of the best shows of that year! Again he’s taking the next step in his career by performing in Europe, Dubai and Asia in 2013 / 2014.
