Here’s Georgie Goodtimes from the Standard, Downtown LA. Normally, most DJ’s you speak to are trying to phase out their vinyl and move onto digital, but not Mr. Goodtimes (that’s his other nickname). The man who counts “Boogie” as one of his genre’s are taking it back to the old school and getting rid of the laptop soon. Doesn’t that make you want to go check him out already?
If you are in Los Angeles, he’s spinning on Tuesday nights at The Standard Downtwon rooftop from 9:30 -1:30 am, and he’s also part of the Saturdays Collective, Saturdays from 2:00 - 7:00pm on the rooftop also. In the meantime, here’s a little chat to get to know him.
