DJ Heny.G is considered by many as one of the most important Dubstep DJ's to have graced the underground music scene in the last 10 years.He is responsible for helping launch the careers of D1(Dub Police), Silkie & Quest(Anti Social Entertainment,Deep Medi Musik) and has also given big breaks to now household names such as Oneman DJ(501 Records) & Rusko(Mad Decent,Dub Police) via his own pirate station radio station React FM in the late 00's. Also a former Rinse FM DJ when it was still an unlicensed radio station(Now legal on 106.8FM) ,he carved a unique soulful,deep,atmospheric yet innovative dubstep sound which earned him legendary status across the globe and it wasn't long till he established his own distictive productions skills with his ever growing fan base.
Heny.G was also a key player in the underground record shop industry (Release The Groove,Uptown Records,BM Soho & Rhythm Division) since the age of 15 and is also renowned for being a pirate radio veteran at only the age of 26 and most recently, he has been an integral part of 20 year old Flex FM which birthed DJ's such as ED Rush,Scott Garcia & DJ Deelkine in the late 90's. Soon to release his long awaited debut LP ''Child Hood'' on his own imprint Gangsta Boogie Music.
At the age of 26,Malcolm Christopher Gustave aka DJ Heny.G has been a part of the dubstep scene before it even had is name.From having had music in his life since birth,nothing was going to stop Heny getting involved with underground electronic music from being infected with lush jungle sounds from listening to mighty pirate stations such as Kool FM,Weekend Rush and DON FM at the tender age of 7.But it was only untill 1997 where heny first learned to mix and the face of the pirate radio scene had changed drasticly from Jungle/Drum & Bass to UK Garage sounds,this was the point heny progressed qucikly as a dj.In 1999,Heny.G aged then,13 years old had earned his first pirate radio show on the now shut down Freeze FM, he had 2 sneak to his radio shows when his mother was sleeping and the hunger for being a well known dj was just starting.
In 2000,Heny met up with long time friend Solomon Rose aka Silkie and began to dj together at eachother's bedrooms,house parties and other various pirate radio stations and in 2001,Heny and silkie began to start producing at the age of 15.In 2002, Heny earned a job @ the well established soho record shop Release The Groove and also earned an A+R job with the shop record label and this was the point Heny had put out Silkie's first ever 12" ''Darksquare'' on his first record label Grimey Beats Recordings.This led to having high support from DJ EZ(Kiss 100),Martin 'Libertry' Larner and Youngsta(Tempa,Rinse FM,FWD)Heny.G and Silkie was still only 15 at this point in time.
In late 2002,Heny became close friends with Youngsta who worked round the corner from Heny.G's base at the legendary BM Soho(aka Black Market Records)and from having recieving a flyer from DJ Hatcha at the now defunct Big Apple Records,it would eventually change DJ Heny.G's music career forever.Heny started to go to a small event called FWD&rt;&rt;(Forward) with Youngsta.Not long after this,Heny produced a track called ''Headshaker'' and from giving youngsta a mini disc,heny got a call straight away from youngsta saying he would get the track cut to a 12" dubplate and possibly get it signed to his sisters(Sarah 'soulja' Lockheart) record label Soulja or Road.This experiance had almost fulfilled heny's dreams but it all eventually fell through as Heny went through a painful time at home but still carried on reaching FWD every first thursday of the month to hear the most freshest sounds in the country in the early 00's.
Still in 2002,Heny.G met Darren Henry aka Quest at a pirate station they both played on called Lush FM 107.6 at the age of 16 and both became close friends quickly from Quest himself respecting the music Heny was playing him at the time.Razor Rekta also met Heny whilst working at Release The Groove.This was a slow progression to what Silkie and Harry Craze(Break The Habit) was forming together,Anti Social Entertainment. In 2003, Heny.G met Jay 5ive at Release The Groove and met again in a studio,eventually doing radio shows together on React FM which Heny.G was a part of behind the scenes at the tender age of 17,going on top of tower blocks putting up transmitters and ariels all for the sake of spreading underground music in 2003.This was the true foundation that officially birthed Anti Social Entertainment in 2003
Razor Rekta had previously took Heny.G to one of the most well know pirate stations at the time in 2002 and was brought up to Delight FM 103.0 to do a guest show,it was then were heny had his first fellow dj that fully understood the FWD sound which was then later to be known all over the world as DUBSTEP.This is where dj's and producers like Hatcha,Skream,Benga,Artwork,Horsepower Productions,Lombardo,Zed Bias,SLT Mob,PlasticMan(Plastician),Mark One(MRK 1),Oris Jay(Darqwan),Ja da Flex,Roxy & EL-B to name a few had had a high pressured impact and influence on Heny.G and Rekta's vision which only a handfull of dj's knew about which would lead to Anti Social Entertainment becoming a outstanding force within the dubstep scene.
Heny eventually progressed to working at a more established record shop in Soho,Central London, Uptown Records in 2004.Heny was the assistant stock controller to clients like Quiet Storm(Caspa) and Mala(Digital Mystikz),supporting and taking in stock of their foundational dubstep tracks which no one else in the shop was prepeard to do.This led to a relationship with the DMZ camp and earning Heny.G his first dubstep booking at their night DMZ@3r'd Bass in November 2005.This also then led to Heny.G earning a daytime show on Rinse.FM 100.4 in January 2006 and the show was so succsessful,the show got moved to Logan Sama's(Kiss 100)former show time on Rinse,Fridays 7pm-9pm and the show had a new title called 'The Big Mouth Show'.
At this point in Heny's career,this was the first time Heny.G had fans from not just England,the whole world from Rinse FM being one of the first pirate stations to have a respected worldwide audiance.It was more than special aswell,Heny, playing exclusive and innovating sounds from Silkie & Quest aswell as a few productions from the man himself and other key producers from the scene such as Kromestar.Fellow producer and friend Skream had then asked heny for a cd of Anti Social's music from hearing so much good talk from fellow dj's and producers.Skream recived the cd in exchange for his innovating beats around 2005 at Fwd&rt;&rt; which was held @ Plastic People(Curtain Rd EC1) and had tracks ''Hardfood'' and ''Mirage'' produced by Conquest included on th cd.The next day Heny had at least 10 voicemails from Skream,filled with excitement that the croydon crew was not the only area that could produce tight innovative dubstep.
Eventually the two tracks got released on Anti Social Entertainments own imprint and Heny.G was now a household name in the early dubstep scene deservedly so.In 2007 Heny.G earned himself a b2b set with Jay 5ive @ FWD&rt;&rt;,something that Heny had waited for so long,a dream he thought that would never come true, after 6 long dedicated years attending FWD&rt;&rt; but it did come true, and Heny became well in demand for his sexy,deep,soulful,bass driven dubstep sets,also well known for his mixing skills that only a handfull of dj's could come close to within the scene.Heny eventually played at FWD and DMZ plenty more times after that aswell as other up and coming nights in the early days of the dubstep scene and other members from Anti Social Entertainment became more in demand.
Today,Heny.G has played for almost every high profile dubstep event up and down the country and became well in demand over the globe,although unable to attend a majority of the international bookings due to extreme passport problems.Heny has also started his own record label, Gangsta Boogie Music and has a fine line of releases lined up including club smasher ''Arena 1'' and radio friendly track ''Retro Love'' aswell as forthcoming album tracks such as ''Child Hood'', ''Delayed Style'' and ''Candy''.Heny.G continues to experiment in deep,soulful,atmospheric, forward thinking music today in 2012
