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.”

Beat of All-Nations X: AK1401

Alan Kinum better known as AK1401 wears many hats and is a good friend of Beats of All-Nations, in fact he edited some video of Quita Penas for us in the past. Working close with him, I have seen him take on tons of projects from all walks of life, even those he had no prior experience in. Kinum is the type to challenge himself in simply having the ability of doing something that has already been done by someone else.

He has taken biking to the extreme over recent times, participating in exhibitions, competing in national races and gaining attention for using bikes not built to take the punishment that he gives to them.  He builds his own courses on hidden public/private grounds and injures himself often in attempts to land next level tricks along the way. Without a second thought, he is always doing things out of his own comfort zone. It is first nature to Kinum, succeed or fail, it is always well worth the experience.

The video above is a compilation shot in the early early months of 2014.  This video spotlights AK1401 mountain biking some of his favorite spots all over the Inland Empire, Southern California.
