Los Angeles artist Gingee has been creating some big waves on the global circuit for sometime now. From djing to producing her own music from moombahton to hip hop, she is quickly becoming a evolving into a major force on the bass scene. She has gotten applause and head nods from some of our favorite music hubs to the likes of Mad Decent, Okayplayer & Do Androids Dance. We’ve been gladly getting to know her lately and are happy to introduce you to both spectrums of the artist that is down with us!
Gingee’s brand new Ep, Tradigital on Moomba+ is a bottom hitting production project infused with world rhythms, fitting to the Zouk movement, she has helped grow. [FREE DOWNLOAD]
Secondly, is a brand new travel mix for Sound Colour Vibration‘s podcast, aptly titled “World Travel Mix,” described in Gingee’s own words as “Some of my favorite tracks from all over that I’ve collected through the years, whether found on the streets of Mumbai, blasted in jeep rides through the Himalayas, in music and dance courses I’ve taken, or played for me by my dad when I was growing up. This is music that nourishes my spirit and that I keep going back to.”

Its no news that our journey began in Brazil with record hunting trips, for weeks at a time over a span of 3 years. The journey is long, documented with audio and video, and most of it has been unreleased. That is neither here nor there. Our work is never done. But today isn’t about us, the world looks on as Brazil, the country that holds the most titles, host the 2014 World Cup. Though we are torn as the Brazilian’s protest their beloved sport over the billions invested to host FIFA for the month. We want to reflect what has drawn us to Brazil in the first place, from the culture to the music, this is Beats of All-Nations: World Cup 2014 Soundtrack. Stay tuned as we will update this post everyday of the Cup with some of our favorite music from our the largest country in South America, Brazil!
GAME DAY 25//THE WORLD CUP: Silvio Cesar – A Festa
Its no news, though we were pulling for Argentina in today’s big game, Messi the magician just didn’t turn on the magic. It was a great game and Germany really deserved to triumph in this tourney for their excellence in their performance against Brazil alone! Today’s pick is the final choice for our World Cup 2014 Soundtrack. I really hope you enjoyed the picks, as each game day I randomly selected songs that came to mind, you can see and hear them all below. Today’s pick is Silvio Cesar‘s “A Festa,” which simply translates into “A Party.” Germany is certainly having a party now!
Finally, I wanted to share some of my mixes to get you all through a lot more selections from my Brazilian collection, in a more condensed and creative listening experience that I think you will dig! Download Away…

Maybe you’ve never heard of him, though he has become an important part of the music scene puzzle in Southern California. Born in L.A. and raised east of it, and Jimbo was brought up, like many of us on hip hop music and culture. In college at UC Riverside, Jimbo took involvement with Hip Hop Congress, focused on organizing on campus events. He soon after began djing the house party and nightclub circuit in Riverside. This would eventually lead into his post-grad time focused on throwing parties of his own in Pomona with some close friends, creating a base for DJs he respected in the local community.
Today Jimbo Jenkins continues to create with conceptual mixes, mash-up projects and beats. His Trillest Mixtape Series, is a unique look into hip hop and R&B from the common hits to the equally great gems by slept on artists hailing from east of L.A. The kid continues to raise eyebrows within the industry, even Diplo posted a photo of Jimbo’s Travis Portishead mash-up project on Instagram. There’s also a mixtape collaboration with Pheo (Mad Decent/Vested in Culture). You can catch Jimbo in the mix live on 2nd & 4th Saturdays at his night called SELECT at Green Room at Fox Theater in Pomona with Arti (My Hollow Drum) and a monthly throwback party called Oh Snap! with Arti, Erok (More Fire/Critical Beatdown), Haruto (The Flyball), and Kab (MHD).
“I’ve found myself to have met and worked with many hardworking people on music, parties, and shows between L.A., O.C. and the I.E. and it makes me happy and proud to be from around these parts.”
-DJ JIMBO JENKINS
