Gingee Drops New EP + Los Angeles Release Party

gingee-tambol-72dpi

Our friend Gingee just dropped her Tambol EP a project that intelligently brings together all the best elements of her many talents.  Tambol is the Filipino word for “drum,” this EP fuses traditional live Filipino sounds and instruments like Kulintang (gongs), Tinikling (bamboo clappers) and other percussion instruments added to various styles of global bass in the form of zouk, moombahton, dancehall, and house.  Gingee also includes various styles of hip hop with cuts, raps and poetry.

…and what’s a new release without a proper release party?  We are super excited about this Saturday as Magic Garage’s Sound Paint returns to the Airliner in Los Angeles.  The show is a promising line-up of bands, artists and some of our favorite DJs including Jimbo Jenkins, Yukicito, Mike Styles, and Gingee!

TROPICALIA IN FURS, LOS ANGELES POP-UP

Words by:  Mike Styles 11402976_10153158198638515_5970895552181721580_n   Our pal and highly sought out Brazilian record collector and merchant from East Village NYC by way of Brazil is traveling with his amazing vinyl to Los Angeles!  Joel Stones is bringing the heat, spirit and legacy of his shop Tropicalia in Furs to Rappcats, pop-up location this weekend in Highland Park.

It’s been almost three years since Tropicalia In Furs has gone Underground to Otherworldly Constellations to dig for the known + Unknown Raw Beats.  Only you have the power to uncover the results of this Intergalactic Voyage.  The Vault will finally reopen on July 25 – 26 at RAPPCATS!!!

“I will bring tons of Brazilian records, 45s, LPs, some jazz, funk, soul, prog, psych, garage, boxes of 45s with good French, Turkish, African, Northern Soul, tons of crazy stuff.” – Joel Stones

With this road trip/record caravan of course comes a long-awaited mix of gems by the man himself, Abobora Mechanica, previewing some of the stuff that will be up for purchase at this very exclusive engagement.  We’ve been bumping this set all week, its a hour long and perfect for the season.  If you’re into collecting records from around the world, or new to the style you don’t want to miss this.  Take advantage, you won’t find original pressings and quantities from Brazil like this anywhere else in the city.  See you there!

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
