Beats of All-Nations Radio 005 Mixed by Gingee

Words by:  Mike Stylesphoto-5

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

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

1

 

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
