60 seconds with Mr.G
Funny enough, one of the first Boiler Rooms I ever watched was Mr.G’s back in 2012. Ever since that Boiler Room, I’ve found it hard for anyone to match him in energy and his style. Being one of the elder figures within electronic music, G has been through it all. He has seen trends come in and come out, and watched the whole scene we love grow and grow. I was lucky enough to sit down with this man for 60 seconds.
