Who are you? How old are you?

I’m Gordon and I’m 43 years old

What is your stage name?

Gordon Flash

How many months/ years have you been Djing / producing?

I’ve been djing for the past 25 years

Why do you want to share your music?

Sharing music, in my own way, as a means for people to connect, have fun and learn to appreciate music would be the main reasons

Mention an artist that inspired you to become a DJ/producer?

Rather than a particular artist, it’s the love toward artists expressing themselves in their own way, is that inspired me to start and continues to do so till today. I never really had a ‘role model’ DJ, although I do remember listening repeatedly to a Sven Vath mixtape around ’93

Is there a local artist that you look up to and love to see play at events?

Being an artist who likes to meander across house, techno, and more, I always appreciate more DJs who like to transition between genres when playing. Sean Rickett is one such DJ and is always a pleasure to hear. There is a good crop of younger DJs coming up, especially in the techno scene, driven by a genuine love for the music and the craft.
