Gian Castro – Also known as Goodjob or Goodjob Gian – is a California DJ/ Producer who keeps his heart in the underground culture of House & Techno, and doesn’t hesitate to take his audience on an abstract journey through variations of those genres and many more styles of music.

Being of South American descent he was immersed into a colorful world of percussive rhythms, Andean Melodies, Afro-Peruvian Folk, as well as Salsa Music almost since birth. That, along with growing up during Hip-Hop’s Hey Day and witnessing the evolution of House & Techno, has made him a well-versed artist. That influence and craftsmanship really shows during his performances.

Having played alongside such artists as DJ Dan, DJ Three, Doc Martin, Marques Wyatt, and Christian Martin (of Dirtybird Records) has really helped his career flourish, gaining him recognition and bookings all over California. – Even overseas.

You may have seen him perform at Burning Man, the Love Long Beach Festival, Exchange LA, the Avalon Hollywood, Yost Theater, Sutra, or many others.

Goodjob – As you can tell by his name. – doesn’t take petty things too seriously, but when it comes to his music, you can tell why he was appointed the name.

A ‘blend of sophisticated rhythms, deep baselines, and psychedelic melodies appropriate for the Midnight to 5 AM hours’ – some would say best describes his on-stage presence. But if you ask HIM, he might simply reply ‘I just get Skurpty.
