Gordon “Nappy G” Clay
Nappy G (a.k.a. G-Don) is a Brooklyn-based producer, DJ, and long-time percussionist in NYC’s dance club scene. A veteran frontman in his own right, Nappy G has shifted his energies and used his musical expertise to become a respected beatmaker and digital music composer, as well as a video editor/director.
As a DJ, Nappy G is known for his unique take on Latin rhythms and Afro-based sounds, flavored and accented by his deep history of Soul, Hip-Hop, and Funk. In 2011, he created a new style of music that fuses these sounds – called the “FUNKY PASSPORT” sound. This style brings together uptempo music (Tropicales, Latin House, Electro, Kuduro, Afro House, Bailefunk, and Samba), mixes it with mid-tempo sounds (Moombahton, Funky Breaks, Bhangra, NuSoul), spices it up with rare traditional classical sounds from all over the place (Reggae, Salsa, Cumbia, Souk, Rumba, and Tropicalia), and turns up the heat with Global Hip-Hop from countries all over the world! The FUNKY PASSPORT sound is feeding peoples’ souls and lighting up dance floors everywhere Nappy G plays.
