Striving for music excellence coupled with that unmistakable groove of pure dance music is what characterises Alvin Gee’s sound. Over the years, Alvin has developed that unique sound which drives the crowd crazy and keeps them wanting more, again and again.

Alvin Gee’s distinct sound is played at the biggest venues and events in Malta and abroad. He is a local headliner for Sunglasses At Night, G7, Creamfields, Ministry of Sound, MTV and more. Alvin Gee is currently at the top of his game. Yet, more is to come… A LOT more!

Tell us about your journey in becoming a deejay.

It all started when I was pretty young. I remember writing down the names of the local and foreign DJs I had never heard of before then. When I was still fifteen, I was listening to a radio show on a community radio station, and I heard this advert about a radio deejaying course that was being organised. I picked up the phone and I made the call. I remember I was the youngest student in the class and it basically started from there. I was awarded third place from a class of about forty people. I was then asked to join Deejays Radio, a local community radio.

After a few months, I attended another course, which this time focused on the use of turn tables and the skills required to become a club DJ. After months of practice, I finally got the chance to prove myself at Malta`s No. 1 club, which at the time was AXIS.

The rest, as they say, is history and it has just been an amazing journey.

Can you describe your state of mind while deejaying?

It consists of the following – having fun, being in control, being satisfied and getting goosebumps.

Is fashion an important part of your life?

It is, but I like keeping it casual and comfy in the most fashionable way possible.

When all the partying is over, how do you normally chill out?

Well, it would normally be after 4am, so normally, I grab a hot dog on my way home and then chill out in my bedroom while watching some Discovery or Nat Geo on TV.

So far, what’s the most money you have spent in one go?

I think I’ll have to say my kitchen, as I love cooking. It had cost around €14k and it’s still my best investment. I love cooking in it every single day.

What can you not live without?

Well, that is a difficult one to answer. Some would say money, others would say God, but for me, I can’t live without MUSIC!
