State your stage name and profession for the record.
My Name is Sean G and I am a DJ.
How long have you been DJing? Do you remember your first DJ gig?
I’ve been Djing since I was 16 years old, so almost 20 years now.
“There have been many great DJ eras in the Bay Area but my favorite were the late 90s to mid 2000’s. As a young DJ those were very creative and inspiring days.”
What’s your favorite DJ era in the Bay Area and why?
There have been many great DJ eras in the Bay Area but my favorite were the late 90s with Maritime Hall, Justice League, Rico’s Loft, etc. and the mid to late 2000’s with Club 6, Levende Lounge, Milk, Mission Rock etc. As a young DJ those were very creative and inspiring days.
You’re on stage in front of some of your music heroes and you gotta rock a 10 minute set. Which tracks do you choose to showcase your musical diaspora?
In that situation i’m going to go with whatever vibe is needed for the situation. Whatever will fuel the energy of that specific party/concert is the direction I will go in while also throwing in a song or two that maybe most people won’t know but should.
Favorite burrito joint?
As a Mission native I can’t disclose that info now. Top secret info LOL.
Curry or Kobe?
Curry all day, fuck Kobe.
What’s one of your favorite places to go unplug and unwind on the West Coast?
Anywhere on the coast north of the Bay Area. I can really just hit Highway 1 and enjoy any of it.
What’s a current favorite album you’re listening to now that you think you’ll still be listening to 10 years from now?
Right now I really like the ‘Tonight Show’ project Rydah J. Klyde & DJ Fresh have just released. I have like 30 new projects on my phone right now but I feel like I’ve been listening to that one almost every day.
Finally, drop some shout outs and where folks can find you on social media.
I currently am doing a party every Sunday Night at Somar called The Collective with Lady Ryan D. Roq and it’s been a lot of fun so shout out to all of them and shout out to my other home away from home, 1015 Folsom. I’ve been spinning at 1015 a lot over the years but recently have become a resident DJ over there and I love the programming and staff over there — shout out Dials and Melissa!
