Biography

Gina Star is a DJ & producer originally from Dallas, Texas. After moving to LA in 2006 to further her career, she was hailed by the LA Times and E! Entertainment as one of the most talented and sought after DJ’s in the city, and was welcomed into some of LA’s most exclusive V.I.P. celebrity endorsed nightclubs playing her own special style of big room uplifting house.

With a distinctive and uncompromising ear for good music, she accepted the position of Director of A&R at Thrive Records, home to some of the biggest DJs in the world including Oakenfold, Digweed and Deep Dish. Gina Star then released her debut single on Grammy nominated producer Dave Audes label, Audacious, which received rave reviews.

Moving across the pond to the UK in 2009 to further her DJ & production career, Gina Star has propelled herself into the limelight working with Toolroom Records and gaining support on her productions, notably Pete Tong spinning her Cirez D & Sunscreem mashup to the masses on his Radio 1 show.

Gina Star released ‘This Is Hollywood’ on Toolroom’s ‘Leaders Of The New School’ imprint, which entered the Beatport Top 100 at #10, and #1 on the Progressive House chart. David Guetta featured it on his internationally syndicated F*** Me I’m Famous radio show. The track features the instantly recognizable vocal talent of Roland Clark preaching ‘Welcome to Hollywood, what’s your dream’.

The Miami edition of Tilllate Magazine featured Gina with a full-page article on her relocation to the UK and her current and upcoming projects. March 2010 also saw the release of the Toolroom Miami compilation for which Gina mixed ‘The Club’ disc.

‘I Want It Now’ is her latest production, which debuted in at the Winter Music Conference in Miami. ‘I Want It Now’ is a ballsy, white-hot anthem that bounces like a ten-tonne baby under the unmistakeable hook from the legendary band Queen – I Want It All…& I Want It Now!!!

Given the thumbs up from Queen’s management via EMI, this project has developed into a full release. The remix package includes Juicy Music’s head honcho Robbie Rivera, who provides a storming re-lick that’s big, brash and will blow even the biggest sound system to smithereens. And fresh after their hot Crookers remix, and for those partial to some jacked-up beats, Keith & Superbeatz are on hand, whipping up a frenzy of cracking bleeps and vocal chops destined to get the dance-floor jumping.

Tiësto featured the record on his international ‘Club Life’ radio show and podcast, Judge Jules named it his ‘Tried and Tested Tune of the Week’ on his Radio 1 Show, and Gina has been busy doing guest interviews for a long list of shows all over the world that have also featured the record. David Guetta, DONS, Mark Knight, and Jerome Isma-Ae are just a few of the other DJs who are currently supporting ‘I Want It Now’.

Gina mixed the ‘Afterclub’ disc on Toolroom’s Ibiza 2010 compilation which was released in September, and she’s now back in the studio working on new productions for the coming year.

Gina is currently signed to Toolroom Records in UK & Eire, Vicious in Australia and New Zealand, NEWS in Belgium, Holland and Luxembourg, TIME Records in Italy, We Play in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, Family Tree Music in Scandinavia, Just Music in South Africa, Blanco Y Negro in Spain, and Warner Bros in Israel!

With much more in the pipeline, 2010 is set to be a big one for Gina Star. Stay tuned!
