Q : Congratulations on your repeat nominations!
A : Thank you! The five of us in DeJavu have been nominated, so it’s all good fun.
Q : You’ve really accomplished a lot since you started in 2000. How did it all begin?
A : As a hobby. I learned how to DJ and then after about 3 months, I became a resident at Q Bar. After a while, I moved on to DeeJay Café and then I got this offer from Jakarta to be a resident at the A2 Club at Alila hotel. They said they would send me to school in London to major in Music Technology before I could start working as their resident. How can one turn down an offer like that??
Q : So why did you come back to Bali then?
A : Because DeJavu gave me a better offer!
Q : Another offer you couldn’t turn down! Tell us about your best gig.
A : The most recent was the Smirnoff Street Party. There were about 7500 people there so it was really awesome! Also when I played 12 hours straight at DeeJay Café. That one’s still a record!
Q : DJs that you love?
A : Internationally, I like DJ Judge Jules (UK). He’s really great and can play any type of music. Locally, I like DJ Romy. His original production, “Velocity,” damn…
Q : So when do we get to hear an original Georgia production?
A : Soon, I hope. Hahaha!
Dj Georgia can be found regularly on the decks at Dejavu and 66.
