In an already crowded pool of talented Toronto Djs, Gerard “G.Cue” Valdez emerges as a respected underground house Dj/Artist and one of the local scene builders to watch out for. His passion for House music and the meshing of its sounds runs 20 years deep. Starting at the early age of 13, mixing Hip-Hop, Funk and R’N’B - he fell in love with house music hearing records produced by Nightmares on Wax, Lil Louis, Robert Owens, and Clivillés & Cole. From that point he was hooked. As his love and dedication to the music grew, opportunities started knocking from those who recognized his talent.
While attending parties when the rave and dance music culture in Toronto was on the rise in the mid-nineties, G.Cue enjoyed, appreciated, and respected every genre of electronic music, but found his way back to his roots of house music –thanks in part to Toronto’s legendary Industry Nightclub, where he was always inspired on the dance floor by DJs, Cevin Fisher, DJ Heather, Thomas Bangalter, Derrick Carter and DJ Sneak, as well as, local legends Matt C & Kenny Glasgow.
His keen sense of track selection and playing for the crowd has allowed him to play alongside industry giants like DJ Sneak, Derrick Carter, Mark Farina, Josh Wink, Phil Weeks, DJ Heather, King Britt, Diz, Johnny Fiasco, Gene Farris, Jason Hodges, and Art Department.
Currently, GCue has been working hard in the studio learning and crafting his production skills, collaborating with like-minded local & international artists, to create his own style of deeply rooted house music and to share it with the world.
