Meet Marjorie Light, better known as Gingee. She’s been DJing for over a decade now and has turned the heads of her peers and the ‘higher music council’ with her own brand of bass music for the last few years. She is a diversified young lady who you would think is ready to take on the world, but she’s already been two-steps ahead of all that. Bound to the rhythm for as long as she could remember, Gingee, raised in LA, grew up in a house of music leading her to become a passionate student of self-expression. From playing instruments as a youth, to self-publishing poetry as a teen, promoting a music festival that began in her Mom’s garage and eventually putting out several of her own albums and Eps, Gingee’s evolution as an artist and commitment may be just in time to land her a space amongst some of the great innovators in the future of global bass. She’s a killer producer, an mc and singer, plus a damn good dj, the scratching alone will make you itch!
About the mix…
“…some of my productions mixed with global bass from around the world, including rasterinha, zouk bass, moombahton and kuduro plus I added some scratching and fun transitions.” -Gingee

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!

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…
