Oxford-based Gary Smith, aka DJ G, has gone where no Christian DJ has gone before (we reckon). This gospel house DJ was flown over to play at the Monaco Grand Prix 2016; now, in our book, that’s a pretty big deal!
DJ G started deejaying as a hobby about 10 years ago, and discovered a love for soulful/gospel house after hearing a track by gospel group, Jasper Street Company which, he says, opened his eyes to “a world of great music which made people feel good and had a message.”
Since then, DJ G has grown from strength to strength, deejaying at various locations, including the Bristol and Oxford carnival to a crowd of 135,000. Now he can proudly add the Monaco Grand Prix to his impressive deck-spinning CV.
When we asked him how he felt about his Monaco gig, he said: “I started deejaying as a hobby, and slowly it grew into what I do now, with teaching DJ skills to special needs children and playing overseas. Going to Monaco to play at the Grand Prix is a big deal, as it took me four years to get here through God’s grace and His blessings.”
He went on to say: “To be light in the dark is what Jesus calls for us to be. He came for the sick, not the well, so light needs to be in the dark to light it up. That is where I want to be. Shining for Christ in Monaco.”
Back on British soil, we’re wondering what’s next for this gospel DJ, who is bashing down boundaries with a great big joyful smile on his face. Loving God, loving the music.
