Regina "Gun$" Garcia is a Washington D.C. area transplant, who moved to Philadelphia for art school, and ended up taking the city's music scene by storm. She initially made her way into the electronic music arena designing merchandise and promoting events for the future music DJ / production titans, Seclusiasis. In 2009 she moved from behind the scenes to front and center, and began her first DJ residency at Flamin Hotz Records' ‘I CAN HAS BASS?’ party. Soon after, she was inducted into the Philly chapter of the legendary New Jersey based DJ / producer club music collective; the Brick Bandits.
She approaches her DJ sets with the unique goal of playing music that would personally have her cutting a rug on the dancefloor, and she's often found dancing as hard as the crowd in the DJ booth. She's rocked crowds from clubs to festivals and currently holds residencies at Philly's Mad Decent Mondays, Hands & Knees, Factory Girls and Red Lip District parties. Her Double Dutch party created the blueprint for "girl power" in Philly, and showcased the debut 215 performances of Azaelia Banks, Maluca and Zuzuka Poderosa among others. She's also taught aspiring female DJs
the craft, and counts Philly selectors Suga Shay, Yolo Ono, Magglezzz & Ghostpunch among her top students.
No stranger to mixtapes, she's dropped a number of them showcasing the best in dance and rap music.
In 2011 she released a groundbreaking all female rap mixtape, "Bad Bitches Bomb First," which ranked number 34 on SPIN Magazine's Top Rap Albums of 2011 list - the only female offering on the chart. In 2013 she performed as tour DJ for up and coming rap superstar Lil Debbie.
Gun$ Garcia's catalog, and accomplishments continue to expand and grow, and she is a pioneer in her field.
Within a few years she's established herself as one of the most formidable and inspiring DJs in the US and her brand is rapidly gaining global recognition and respect.
