his own unique way. He began playing some of the biggest clubs and
festivals in the world, Berlin's Love Parade, Miami's Ultra Beach
Festival and Rave on the Rocks to name a few. And with demand for George
reaching a fever pitch, he produced his second mix cd,”Release: AM and

people--it makes me want to play more intimate stuff," he explains. "I
used to play harder. Now I'm into the more melodic stuff. I guess when
you grow into this scene you want to play records that mean something."
George proves he's a trance DJ that can move onto something bigger and
better. “Whenever I play anywhere, I feel like I am at home, I look down
to the dance floor and I see my people, they understand me, they
understand what is happening as I spin my records.” It’s a journey that
happens week after week, and George is their guide.
