FEATURED | JULY 2013 | DJ SPECIAL EDITION
She looks good, plays good music and is one of DEJAVUFM.COMs latest recruits with her regular Sunday show ‘NEV G’s NOSTALSHIP’. She just played a storming set for Soul Session and she says she “adores representing the females in this game”.
Did any DJs inspire you to become a DJ yourself?
To be really honest, no-one really inspired me to be a DJ. I was actually studying Performing Arts at College (1992-1994) then at University (1995-1997). I got to my final year and I thought “What am I doing??? I have this big personality & it would be wasted on acting as someone else!” so then I began pursuing radio in 1996. I started in hospital radio then moved on to legal radio [LTR] in 1997 and stayed there for 9 years. I figured my big personality, serious selection of good, varied eclectic music and love of astrology (which involves everyone whether they like it or not) would be a good mix. I also adore representing the females in this game and am very proud of what I bring to my various music families.
When not DJing how do you fill your time?
I adore Bodybalance! This is a cross between Yoga, Pilates and Tai Chi. It’s very focused and definitely not as easy as it looks from the outside! I have had a love for Jungle music since 1993. When I’m not listening to the genres I play, I listen to Old Skool Jungle (namely 1994 Jungle). In addition to this, I am currently studying Major Events Management at University, which ties into my passion for events! I am also known for my professional dessert making and have been doing this for 18 years! Desserts/cakes include Chocolate Rum Cake, Banoffee Pie, White Chocolate Cheesecake and Tiramisu Cheesecake. Slice anyone?
Why the G in Nev G?
My real first name is spelt Nevci . In Turkish the ‘C’ is pronounced ‘G’, so Nev G is very much pronounced as my real name. I happen to have a real and cool DJ name.
In November 2012, Nev G was invited to host her own show on dejavu.com aptly named Nev G’s Nostalship ‘a nostalgic musical journey across the years’. The show consists of older R&B, Soul, Neo Soul, New Jack Swing and a general eclectic flavour as well as monthly horoscope readings which encompass her childhood passion for astrology so you are always in her warm and capable hands, perfect for winding down the weekend.
