By 15, The GEE was playing the scene tuned to Hip Hop Jazzed up Funky beats.

Synching to the Acid house movement of the 80’s he organized parties and underground raves around Holland, the main gig called Night of the Gabbers. Following a break from the turntables Gee pushed full throttle once more in 2009, immersing himself in the Ibiza dance scene. By 2010, Ibiza partygoers would hear his pulsating mixes as he first went on the air at Sonica Radio and later Ibiza Global Radio, (97.6 FM) both during peak airtime.
