At the age of 17, DJ GMC became the DJ of a Hip Hop group called "Northern Lightz", members of the original, frequently copied but never equalled, "SBK SQUAD". This huge Squad was set up by different rappers, djs and grafitti artists as well as some breakdancers. After this group split up around 2002 and a small musical pause GMC realized that he can't escape from his passion of doing music. So he returned to the DJ scene in 2007 and tried to go his own way by dropping a lot of Dancehall Mixtapes (Soundclash series 7.1 - 9.1).
In 2009 DJ GMC founded "GMC Music Productions" (GMC Music Productions). Having experiences in playing piano and guitar he started to experiment with productional hard- and software and easily built beats and riddims. He used his well know links to artists to produce a lot of songs in a very short time.
2009 he came in contact with the great UK selecta "Silverfox" and helped him to build up SFDC Radio (www.sfdcradio.com). He became a regular radio DJ for Reggae and Dancehall music there. In 2010 a lot of different reggae dancehall riddims with upcoming jamaican and international artists were released by GMC (e.g. Medication Riddim, Ghetto Siren Riddim, Boiling Blood Riddim,...). Several artist mixtapes as well as reggae mix cds were released by him through these years. In 2011 his amazing "Whizzle Riddim" came out. 3 videos were produced from artists who voiced this riddim

While the first release was already joined by the massive amount of 16 international artists from Jamaica, USA, Canada, UK, Netherlands and Germany, the final Megapack even contains 22 songs. The riddim was presented in Germanys biggest Reggae Dancehall Magazine "Riddim" in summer 2011 and the feedback was good all the way.
In August GMC released the "Hot Summer Riddim" on iTunes, Amazon, Napster, etc. 11 artists with a blazing summer vybe can be found on this great digital release.
While producing Reggae and Dancehall GMC soon realizes his ability to switch the genres from Reggae to Raggajungle in his productions. He created several great jungle remixes/bootlegs of well known ragga songs and this lead him to start a free release EP series called "DJ GMC - Jungle Movements". Volume 1 & 2 were released in 2011 on www.unjustifiedrecords.com for free and more will come soon.
As it is only a small step from Raggajungle to Drum n Bass, of course you can also find productions of this crazy music lover in the DnB scene. In spring 2011 "Synfonickz" was founded. The two men standing behind this young project is a boy called "Beamar" and DJ GMC! In summer 2011 the debut Demo LP "Cryptic" was released for free which contains 7 DnB/Jungle songs and an epic remix.
For 2012 GMC has planed to go on with his Jungle Movements series and he is already workin out an awesome new riddim called "Electrify Riddim" that will get released beginning of 2012 and definately will leave his footprints on the dancefloors.
Who knows maybe u will even hear more new DnB music from "Synfonickz", this boy seems to be a musical workaholic!
