With her first record going top ten on Beatport, Gina Star is a name you will be hearing a lot of.”
Gina Star is a DJ and producer originally from Dallas, Texas. After moving to LA in 2006 to further her career, she was hailed by the LA Times and E! Entertainment as one of the most talented and sought after DJʼs in the city, and was welcomed into some of LAʼs most exclusive V.I.P. celebrity endorsed nightclubs playing her own special style of big room uplifting house.
Moving across the pond to the UK in 2009 to further her DJ & production career, Gina propelled herself into the limelight working with Toolroom Records and gaining support on her productions, notably Pete Tong spinning her Cirez D & Sunscreem mashup to the masses on his Radio 1 show.
Gina Star released ʻThis Is Hollywoodʼ which entered the Beatport Top 100 at #10, and #1 on the Progressive House chart. David Guetta featured it on his internationally syndicated F*** Me Iʼm Famous radio show. The track features the instantly recognizable vocal talent of Roland Clark preaching ʻWelcome to Hollywood, whatʼs your dreamʼ.
ʻI Want It Nowʼ debuted at WMC ʻ10, and uses the unmistakable hook from the legendary band Queen – I Want It All...& I Want It Now!!! Given the thumbs up from Queenʼs management via EMI, this project developed into a full release for Toolroom Records including a remix from Robbie Rivera. Tiësto featured the record on his International ʻClub Lifeʼ radio show and podcast, Judge Jules named it his ʻTried and Tested Tune of the Weekʼ on his Radio 1 show.
Gina has mixed several Toolroom Records compilations including the best selling ‘Miami 2010’ ‘Ibiza 2010’ ‘Miami 2011’ and ‘Best of 2011’. She also did an ad campaign for Gio-Goi Clothing, which was circulated throughout Europe.
Her remix of Tiësto and Mark Knight 'Beautiful World' was used by Tiesto in his Dj sets and on his radio show, and her remix of Chris Willis (David Guetta’s favorite singer/songwriter) “Too Much In Love” went to #4 in the Billboard Club chart; both are still getting radio spins around the world.
In 2012 she launched a self titled monthly Podcast which counts down her current top 10. The latter part of 2012 saw single releases of iWIN on Atlantic/Big Beat, Bliss on CR2 & Action, Tears, Bananular and U Don’t Love Me on new label LOI. She was featured on the front page of Beatport and heavily supported on radio shows around the world including BBC Radio 1, Capital FM, iHeart, Sirius & in club charts such as Music Weeks Coolcuts & DMC’s Buzz Chart.
Her track Midnight was featured in the Miami Buzz Chart & will be released in early 2013.
