No Sugar, DJ, Producer and VJ
Gaby a.k.a. No Sugar is a charismatic lady with many musical talents.
She was born and raised in “s-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands and is partly Indonesian, Italian and Dutch. Her mother was a lead singer at a local cover band and passed her passion of music on to Gaby. At the age of 4 she wanted to become a drummer and she learned drums and piano. Sports were also very important in her life. She practiced martial arts on a professional level for a period of 18 years. Her passion for music was always present during growing up and later also during her study of Financial Planning & Economics.
She started in 2005 learning to produce music with FL Studio and Ableton and switched after two years to Logic Pro X as her main DAW to produce electronic music. She has quit her day time job in 2009 and continued on a professional level as a (ghost) producer using different alias names. She is inspired by percussive drums and many different types of music. To name a few inspiring artists; Prince, Beyoncé, Adele, Sergio Mendes, Madonna, The Rolling Stones, U2, Armin van Buuren, Tiësto, Calvin Harris and David Guetta. She got the name “No Sugar” from one of her best friends who plays guitar and spend a lot of hours with her in the studio too, giving her “coffee without sugar“ as fuel to keep on working on progress.
Her DJ journey also started in 2005. She started learning DJ-ing at a professional level on vinyl at DJ School Nederland and later on she returned to this school in 2007 to work with Pioneer CDJ’s as well. She started to perform on a regularly basis at low fees or sometimes even without any fee at all to let out her creativity for music. No Sugar performed at local clubs, private and corporate events and in international hot places like Ibiza, Barcelona, Rio de Janeiro, Dubai, Bali and so on.
No Sugar is modest and works hard behind the scenes as a ghost producer writing and mixing tracks for others. No Sugar has a huge amount of DJ tricks and skills as a DJANE like live mixing with four players, beat juggling, scratching and live mash-ups without using synced programs!
No Sugar is a real team player too so if you are in for an extended show, just add some live musicians and her custom visuals on a huge led wall.
