In our underground electronic music world, there is none other like Guy J. Through all of his creative endeavors he keeps a continuous energy and quality that makes his music stand out from the crowd. From his own productions, to music that he releases on Lost & Found and Armadillo, to his live sets as he travels around the world, there is always an essence that permeates, a something special that can be heard between the beats and within the melodies. When I saw that he was coming to Denver to play at The Church as a part of the Whirling Dervish’s Thursday Night Service event series (the hosts of the fantastic Sasha/Quivver Warehouse Party), I nervously jumped at the opportunity to catch up with him and speak to him in person.
Sitting on the patio of the beautiful the ART hotel in Denver, overlooking the night’s future club destination while enjoying an especially hot Colorado Summer morning, I admit I was in a bit of a daze to meet the legendary Guy J. He truly couldn’t have been more of a gentleman: a humble, kind hearted, and warm soul who generously offered his time, gave an ear to my ramblings, and openly shared his thoughts with me. When I learned more about his personal philosophy on music and life, it became apparent why you feel such peace surrounding him, and why his energy connects with so many across the world today.
