Unruly Phoenix, also known as Gabrielle Gilliot, was raised in Suriname and currently lives in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. She took the leap of faith by coming to the Netherlands to start her DJ journey in 2019., enrolling herself at the “DJ Boothcamp” in Rotterdam and dedicated herself to a rigorous regime of practice. She scored her debut at none other than Ziongate, where she was awe-struck by the sound taking the world by storm, “Amapiano”; she found her purpose, and the rest was history.
Nowadays, Unruly Phoenix’s name is closely associated with headliners such as Black Coffee, Major League, Dbngogo, WaxFiend & Philou Louzolo, and a mainstay at almost every Afrolectic party in the Netherlands. Behind the deck is where she feels most alive and able to transmute energy with music and share positive vibrations with the crowd.
