From observer to frontier.
In less than a decade, Gemstarr (Jeremy Leong) has come a long way since the days he was a patron in 2002. He took his passion for the craft to the next step, and started his first night in July 2007 at O Bar with his crew mate Ollie’Des as resident of the venue. Shortly after, he joined dbl O Singapore as resident DJ in 2009, responsible for dropping some of the hottest house tunes in 2009.
During his residency in dbl O, his monthly house night event “Bass Kick” made headlines, and helmed numerous resident nights in his decade-long career at over 15 clubs in Singapore.
His performances as guest DJ include Siloso Beach Party’s New Year’s Eve countdown in 2010, DXO Club, Rebel Boutique Club, Mink and The Butter Factory, just to name a few. He has worked together with local curators and world-class performers such as Joshua P, Ramesh T, Kenneth Francis, Deno Dusk, Brendon P, Clinton Sparks DJ Ruckus, Rave Republic, Fabulous, TRIPL, Werewolves, Make You Freak, LMFAO’s DJ Lucky Lou, as well as Audiobot and Soulja Boy.
Today, Gemstarr is a regular figure at most leading nightclubs on the island, while holding his resident nights at Empire, Bang Bang, Altimate and Skyline. In 2013, he founded Ministry of DJs, currently one of Singapore’s leading DJ education provider.
