DJ Gabe Real Live from Coachella Stage 2016

Words By Shad Powers, The Desert Sun
April 23, 2016

You might not know Moreno Valley based DJ Gabe Real, but if you collect Coachella lineup T-shirts or posters, you’ve seen his name almost as much as anyone.

He was the first act out on the main stage Friday during Weekend Two at Coachella and that marked his ninth appearance at the famous festival. That’s right, he’s played here nine times from the Yuma Tent to the ultimate stage.

His first time was back in 2001 as a DJ for Supernatural also on the main stage. Last year he opened the Sunday afternoon set on the Outdoor Stage. He’s had different names throughout the years. DJ Lesto, DJ Wiens and now DJ Gabe Real.

On Friday he kicked out his usual mix of reggae jams and late 1980s, early 1990s hip-hop to a late-arriving crowd under the hot early-afternoon sun on the main stage where LCD Soundsystem would headline later.

He made sure to mix in some tributes. The year 2016 has been particularly rough on the world of musical influencers, but DJ Gabe Real pinpointed three to give a thumping shoutout to at Coachella. He played snippets of “Kiss” and “I Wanna Be Your Lover” in memory of Prince. The crowd cheered and pointed solemnly to the sky. He also played “Scenario” by Tribe Called Quest to honor Phife Dawg who also recently passed away. And finally he played David Bowie’s pop hit “Let’s Dance.”

He weaved them into his set seamlessly with “Kiss” rolling right into the drum beat opening of Bel Biv Devoe’s “Poison” for example.

Wearing a Wiens Brewing Company T-shirt (Temecula Brewery) and sun glasses, DJ Gabe Real didn’t do much in the way of showmanship. He let his sound speak for itself.

A lot of your favorite hip-hop jams were part of the set, “Me, Myself and I,” “Now That We Found Love” etc.

He was followed on the stage by Joey Bada$$, so by the time DJ Gabe Real’s set end he was playing for quite a nice size crowd.

If you missed his set, don’t worry. There’s about an 80 percent chance he’ll be back in some capacity next year if history is any indication.

Beats of All-Nations Radio: Episode 004 Mixed by DJ Jimbo Jenkins

Our fourth installment of Beats Of All-Nations Radio features a brand new mix from the imaginative world of sound and bass by DJ Jimbo Jenkins!

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
