Showtime:  Weekly show alongside Tyramyx The Heavy Session - every Friday night from 11pm until 1am.


Gemma Brennand (aka G-Breezy) is a Preston-born DJ, presenter and musician in the drum and bass and jungle scene. Her passion was ignited after an introduction from her big brother who introduced her to the rave scene, to drum and bass and to sound system culture. In April 2016, Gemma and her brother ran their first ‘Spin City’ Jungle event at The Ferret in Preston and this is what inspired her to pick up her headphones and have a go at DJ’ing, and to begin her journey of learning to write and produce music.


Currently, she is studying a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music Production and Performance at the University of Central Lancashire.  She loves doing the show as it enables her to further push the Lancashire DNB/Jungle scene and to promote the new and upcoming artists she crosses paths with locally (and keeps her up to date with fresh music within the genre!).


In addition to the above, G-Breezy is a keen skateboarder and runs monthly female-only Skateboard & Open Decks events in order to give females a platform to practice DJing in front of people, and can usually be found shifting sound gear around the North West supporting other music events she is involved in.
