BIO PRINTED IN PACIFIC EDGE MAGAZINE 2006:
Most DJs you might ask, “What cities have you DJed in?” With DJ G-Spot, it’s more of a question of “What Country!” Since you asked… countries include, Japan, Australia, Thailand, England, Ireland, Canada, Brazil, Mexico just to name a few.
DJ G-Spot, (“G” as he is called by most, short for Greg. And the latter part of his name “Spot”, is an actual childhood nickname) is arguably one of Hawaii’s busiest & most favored DJ, being named “Best DJ in Honolulu” by the readers of Honolulu Weekly in 1998. Europe’s MIXER MAGAZINE recommends its readers traveling to Hawaii to catch G-Spot spinning. G was also a key character on a 1 hour BBC Television special that featured then #1 DJ in the world, Carl Cox who brought in the 2000 Millennium New Years in both Australia & Hawaii.
Currently G-Spot is a DJ and promotions director for Honolulu Streetwear. He also holds high profile sponsorships with Coors Light, Red Bull & Larceny. He also runs several weeklies and large annual events under his promotion banner, Double-O-Spot. G-Spot is also heavily involved in radio including being a producer, host & mix show DJ for 93.1FM, 102.7FM & 93.9FM. Lastly, still going strong for close to 10 years now is his patented ‘Underground Sounds’ Radio show that airs every Friday 6-9pm on KTUH 90.3FM.
On the club circuit, you can catch him DJing at Next Door Every Wednesday for an 80’s Night, Every Friday at Get Fresh at Indigo and doing weekly guest spots at various venues throughout Hawaii.
“There was a point where I was DJing 3-4 gigs in one night” G reflects with a sense of wonderment. An all too typical day for G would include him running through endless meetings with sponsors, venues, managers & promoters, shooting over to the radio station at 6pm to host his radio show, then off to his first club gig of the night at The W hotel at 10pm, then off to another gig ‘til 3am and finally to an after hours joint to rock the house ‘til the sun comes up.

DJ IKON has been on board OOSPOT since its first Honolulu Party with DJ Heather from Chicago.

In the early 90's a young fledgling graff artist and hip hop enthusiast [Ryan Galinato] stumbled into the world of electronic dance music. It was his aerosol art hobby that gave birth to the name IKON which
started as a tag name, remained a nickname, and later evolved into the moniker he is known as today. IKON, a DJ, promoter, freelance journalist, and radio mixshow host from Hawaii has become a rapidly
rising figure in the domestic breaks movement by devoting his time to pushing and promoting a certain sound to its outer limits. As a promoter, his location, and knowledge of the industry will pave the
way for breakbeat culture to hit the road less traveled for years to come. As a DJ, his passion and prior experience as a house music afficionado have created his current and unique style that can be
easily described as an eclectic mix of funky electro breakbeat with elements of old skool miami bass/booty/freestyle infused with present day nu skool influences. Much still awaits to be seen and uncovered,
but with the relationship that has been growing with lleven Eleven Recordings, Future Sound of Breaks collective, Afterdark Records, Bottom End Records, Tommy Who Records, and other notable players in
the domestic breaks movement, for IKON there are still many more boundaries to be crossed. As for his future, look for special collaborations with the Illeven Eleven crew as well as original productions from the mind of an IKON!
