Boy George is universally recognised as one of the music scene’s biggest artists, and having gained truly global recognition

Boy George is universally recognised as one of the music scene’s biggest artists, and for the past 30 years has maintained a strong position at the forefront of this ever-changing, multi-faceted industry.

Attracting high praise from the likes of Mixmag, DJ Magazine and MTV as having gained truly global recognition, the Grammy-nominated singer has created a worldwide presence that transcends age, race, colour, creed, nationality and even religion.

From the millions of records he sold as performer and songwriter with 80’s super group Culture Club, and as a solo artist, to maintaining his position as one of the world’s most successful and in-demand international DJs. George’s list of achievements is unparalleled in dance circles, having to-date been a national newspaper columnist for the Daily Express, author of two bestselling autobiographies, been the co-producer, songwriter and on-stage star of the award-winning musical ‘Taboo’ on both New York’s Broadway and London’s West End, creator of his own B-Rude fashion label with outlets in New York, Los Angeles, London, as well as still maintaining an elite membership to the worlds designer fashion hierarchy – DJing regularly at post catwalk shows such as Versace, Phillip Treacy and more recently Hugo Boss. We didn’t even get to George making it into the Top 50 of the BBC’s 100 Greatest Britons of all time,

A professional DJ since the late 70’s, Boy George has had a long and successful career associated with house music stemming from early acid house and Chicago grooves in the 80’s, through to electro and tech house in the 90’s and 00’s. Maintaining a constant tour schedule, he’s notched up hundreds of thousands of air miles and taken in destinations from the snow capped mountains of Vancouver to the golden sun kissed sands of Bondi beach.

Ever the consummate superstar DJ, his travels have seen him pack out events in over 70 countries around the world, from super-brands in Godskitchen, Cream, Manumission and Spundae to global powerhouse venues like Ministry of Sound in London, Zouk in Singapore and Guvernment in Toronto. Additionally his name has been a prominent figure at many of the world’s leading festival including Homelands, BigGayOut and V Festival.

A standout producer in his own right with tracks such as ‘Generations of Love’ and ‘When Will You Learn’, his productions over the years have been released under imprints such as Ministry of Sound, Sony, GU Music, Virgin, Polystar, Hed Kandi, Universal, Subliminal, EMI, Fantazia and featured on compilations as varied as Global Underground and Bedrock to Chill Out Ibiza and Clubbers Guide. His impressive list of collaborations stands equally tall with George having worked with dance heavyweights such as Erick Morillo, Jeremy Healy, Deep Dish, Rui Da Silva, Afrika Bambaataa, Hi-Gate, Adamski and Faithless.

A central figure in the dance scene of the noughties George’s music propelled itself beyond the radio playlists and clubs where, alongside Radio 1 veteran Pete Tong, he helped launch Ministry of Sound’s flagship compilation album ‘The Annual’. The album went on to sell over 200,000 copies and was the catalyst to the now-global label. Other compilations to his name include ‘Galaxy Weekender’, Ministry of Sound’s ‘Dance Nation’ as well as another two ‘The Annual albums followed’; this time with another longstanding Radio 1 jock – Judge Jules.

With a long list of guest slots on radio stations such as Radio 1, Kiss FM, Sirius and Galaxy; where he hosted his own radio show for two years. George has also featured heavily on TV shows around the world with appearances on programmes like BBC 1 Jonathan Ross, BBC 2 Jools Holland, MTV Cribs, BPM:tv, Brit Awards, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, CNN, VH1, Top of the Pops and CD:TV.

Although in recent years (in the UK at least), the media spotlight has fallen too much on George’s iconic media status and not enough on an ever-expanding and prolific musical output, his presence in the music industry still remains an ever-present series of headline making stories with notable publications such as Rolling Stones, NME, Q Magazine, The Guardian, New York Times, and Mumbai Mirror all following his career with great zeal.
