Sound Safari 009 – Guest Jinku [Full 1 Hour Guest Mix]
Its the 9th installment of the number one podcast series that highlights Kenyan Electronic Dance Music.
This mix is special in a way. First, its the first full hour guest mix we’ve ever held; the others are usually divided into two sections – first half hour by your truly Dj Fita and then the guest takes over control in the second half of the hour. Secondly, our guest this time is none other than Jinku, the space monkey who made Nairobi his home.
Jinku is part of the EA Wave collective that topped our Producer List 2015 and also a graphic designer. When I listened to this mix, my first reaction was “Holy mother of all Sound Safaris!”. I have to say, this is one of the best episodes we’ve done so far here at EDM Kenya. From the track listing to the mixing technique.
The mix is interluded with vocal chops from this anonymous girl who is having a conversation with Jinku. It progresses smoothly, building up speed as Jinku slowly develops feelings for this girl. The Dj literary just told a story about love in 53 minutes! The painting of an emotional picture using sound is on another level of creativity.
With these new wave of progressive Djs and producers cropping up, I can say the future is bright
