DJ Val G, began her journey with a pair of turntables, a few way-back records and admittedly, only a mild interest in life as a professional DJ. By 2008 however, she blazed into the industry as a serious contender and humbly emerged from obscurity into the San Francisco nightlife circuit. Since then, her catalog has grown with each drop of the needle, having played everywhere, from house parties to mega clubs, and featured in everything from homegrown televised documentaries to larger than life community events, including the world-renowned SF Pride event championed by 100,000+ supporters and onlookers each year.
