It was by accident that Drop G found his stage name. The word, “Drop G,” came to the DJ during a simple discussion with his friend ‘’Regard’’ Drop G most of the time used records with hard drops, and ‘’Regard’’ suggested getting his artistic name Drop G, while the meaning for G is by the first initial font of his real name ‘’Gzim’’ Since 2013.
Today Drop G counts great numbers on his artist channels. Drop G’s youtube channel counts 1,05M subscribers, 56k followers on IG, and 50k likes on Fan Page. Drop G has performed in so many countries like United Arab States, Jordan, Croatia, Montenegro, etc. He has built a unique understanding of his audiences and the music that makes them move. The deep house Drop G mixes in Jordan is different from the deep house he performs in Croatia and all other countries for the reason of the different cultures in each area. The nuance of each crowd is not lost.
Drop G audiences were not always so large, having grown up as the youngest child and only son of a garden worker and a housekeeper in Lipjan, Kosovo. The sport was his first passion, followed by bodybuilder once he reached his teenage years. Like most Albanian children, Drop G grew up knowing the names of the artists he loved — not the names of their songs. From the Albanian classics of Sabri Fejzullahu, Drop G also grew up listening to George Michael, John Lennon, and Michael Jackson on the radio. The UK and US hits of the 80s were a goldmine of inspiration to Drop G. “I have always had an international focus,” says the DJ of his music taste and work.
The music scene in Kosovo was not strong in the early years of its independence, so Drop G frequented lounges with his cousin during their teens. American hip-hop and R&B hits played over the speakers, with few house music compilations in the mix. Club-goers sat at tables instead of danced. Over drinks one day, Drop G cousin’s half-jokingly asked, “Why don’t you make songs like these?” Drop G’s curiosity was instantly ignited. Drop G began listening to artists like Tiesto on YouTube and studying house compilations. From creating electro house mixes on his computer, he moved to deep house. Sharing his music was one of his favorite parts of creating.
The DJ continued to develop his formula for mixes while working with his manager, Hajriz Bajrami of LEAF Management. The two had been classmates in high school when Hajriz noticed Drop G’s talent for DJing at a house party. Together they built a Drop G profile on YouTube to 800k subscribers after filling in the site’s gap for deep house mixes. The most successful Drop G release remixes are: ‘I can’t Be’, ‘Nightcall’, and ‘How Deep Is Your Love’.
