As the first few synths bubble into life in the opening bars of “You Don’t Know Me”, so does the unmistakable, saccharine vocals of Australian DJ/singer/producer GG Magree.
Previously named as YouTube’s #1 artist to watch, the artist has grown a dedicated fan base due to her relentless club bops – characterised by body-shuddering bass and equally heavy hooks.
“I wrote ‘You Don’t Know Me” about a year ago once I realised that people assume I’m the same person on stage as I am off stage,” explains Magree. “I’m a naturally very-high-energy type of person and when I’m on stage performing, the high energy is escalated. This is why a lot of my fans, industry friends and other DJs assume I’m like that 24/7. But the truth is that when I’m not on stage or around people, I am really quiet and chill. I like to not be so on all of the time as it can be super draining. ‘You Don’t Know Me’ is about people assuming my personality is psychotic when I can be quite the housewife; I love to cook, clean and watch murder documentaries. Thank you for coming to my TED talk.”
