Brian Gee

 

Drum & Bass DJ Bryan Gee began Djing at an early age in Cheltenham. In this early years he was mainlt focussed on Reggae. In the early eighties his love for music had led him to Brixton, London where he spend two years in jail after he made some mistakes. During these yrears he became close friends with another DJ who was interested in jazz-funk and popular music and Bryan’s love for different types of music began to grow.

After he left prison Bryan decided it was time to start up his own sound system which he had also done in his early years. He called the sound system Kleer FM and he thrust himself right in the mix as he started to play wherever he could get a gig. Soon he found himself DJing at parties all around the area and on pirate radio too. At a DJgig in a regular local pub Bryan met Jumping Jack Frost and they forged a partnership that led to them DJing together on pirate station Quest FM before moving onto their own Brixton based station, Passion.

Playing together they made a huge name for themselves around the area and after a chance encounter with a new form of dance music house at a party near London Bridge, Bryan and Frost began to introduce acid house to their radio shows and DJ sets. Thanks to his knowledge of the scene Bryan landed himself a job at Rhythm King offshoot Outer Rhythm, and soon he was helping to kick start the careers of artists like Leftfield and Moby. After leaving his job Bryan decided it was time to follow his heart and start a label of his own. V Recordings was born with Bryan bringing through some more fresh talent now well known to the world as Roni Size, Krust and Die. Meanwhile Bryan’s reputation as a DJ has spread far and wide, not only through the hundreds of high profile bookings he receives each year, but also thanks to his own V Recordings and Movement branded events.
