Instant Kaffein: A quickie with Drum & Bass DJ Ella G

August 2, 2017

Jami Gavin, A.K.A. Ella G, has been spinning the decks at prominent EDM festivals and clubs in the country namely; Science Frikshun; Tomorrow Never Happened; Grietfest; and Oppi Koppi amongst others since stepping into the scene in 2013. Her specialty as a DJ is found within the various styles and tastes of the Drum & Bass genre and she’s one amongst the really few female D&B DJs out there which makes her something special, especially here in South Africa. When not mixing Drum & Bass tunes, she plays around with R&B and Hip-Hop genres which she has added to her music expertise as a disc jockey.

What are you?

A funky homo sapien


I am inspired by…

It could be anything, keep your eyes peeled, always absorb your surroundings, you never know what could inspire you. More specifically; other peoples work – hard work, nature, my family, my animal family, all the people I love.

Being present and still.
